Elders from the Kikuyu community and all Mt Kenya politicians allied to Raila and Uhuru on Friday had a 5 hour meeting in Thika town to brainstorm the way forward.
The group met to plan a series of meetings in the larger Mt Kenya region in all counties to prepare the ground for PM Raila Odinga visit. The group is intent on having Raila Odinga start endearing himself to Mountain region people.
This is after they received a communication from Nancy Gitau, Uhuru’s most influential advisor in matters of politics and succession that Raila will be a one term transition president next year and that Raila Odinga provides the shortest path toward the return of a Kikuyu.
The group held an overnight meeting in a hotel in Thika where a plan was crafted to market the former Prime Minister in the region that has opposed him for ages.
The meeting was also attended by Moses Kuria, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto who has been critical of the handshake.
They plan to execute the plan starting mid March.
