Several political leaders from Mt. Kenya have formed a group to further solidify President Uhuru Kenyatta’s support in the region.
Nominated MP Maina Kamanda said the Mt. Kenya and Diaspora Leadership Forum agenda is to support the President to complete his development agenda for the country.
The forum incorporates leaders in and out of elective positions including former presidential candidates Peter Kenneth and Martha Karua.
In Murang’a, Mathioya MP Peter Kimari and his Kigumo counterpart Ruth Mwaniki have also joined the group.
Speaking during a church service at Njau-ini ACC and S church in Kangari on Sunday, Kamanda said the group will start going around the region to recruit more members.
He said it is paramount for local leaders to support the President accomplish his developmental goals before the end of his term.
Kamanda also recommended the inclusion of the Prime Minister seat in the Constitution during the referendum.
“Let the question be incorporated in the referendum and Kenyans will decide what they want,” the MP said.
He said the seat will help the President further unite the country and reduce the chaos that follows elections as more regions will be included in the government.
His sentiments were echoed by former Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru who said the leadership forum will help bring together leaders in the region.
“Previously, most of us were marked because we were able to bring people in the Mt. Kenya region together,” he said.
