Senate majority leader Kithure Kindiki on Wednesday hinted he may not support Deputy President William Ruto for presidency in 2022.
He said the Meru community “has no contract with anyone beyond 2017”.
Kindiki urged Meru and Tharaka Nithi residents to support the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ruto next year.
He was speaking at Kiburine in Tharaka Nithi when he inspected road works.
Kindiki advised the Meru community to focus on development and not support formation of one political party for the region.
He said for Meru to gain political power, all its leaders need to unite.
Kindiki said for a long time, the two counties have been divided by leaders.
He said time has come for them to unite for political and economic development.
Kindiki said Meru is ready to go for the top seat in 2022 and its leaders and voters will support one of their own.
His sentiments come barely a year after the Star reported the TNA side of the Jubilee coalition is grooming him to go for the presidency in 2022.
“While the constitution allows freedom of association, we in the Jubilee Party see no need for tribal political parties,” Kindiki said.
