Uhuru To Meet Mt Kenya Leaders In Sagana, Set To Rally Them Behind His Preferred 2022 Presidential Candidate

President Uhuru Kenyatta will again be meeting leaders from his Mt Kenya turf later in the month, it has been revealed.

The leader has done the same a few times in the past, the plan being to unite the Mt Kenya region ahead of next year’s elections.

Fresh details indicate that another Sagana State Lodge meeting is on the way, one that will be attended by a good number of leaders.

Gatanga MP Nduati Ngugi said that the President has promised to meet the leaders before the end of the month in Nyeri.

The Sagana State Lodge meeting, he said, will be used to unite all area leaders who to not be on the same page, at s time when there is a huge disagreement between area leaders.

The MP suggested that the President has realized that the region isn’t as united as he would want it to snd has decided to intervene.

“He directed us to reach out to all the leaders including those with smaller parties and brief him before he personally meets them. Uhuru does not want to leave us disjointed,” the lawmaker told The Standard.

This is even as it emerges that even the meeting by Mt Kenya leaders in Nairobi on Monday, which concluded that the region must be given the DP slot to support the next president, had the blessings of the President.

Mathioya MP Peter Kimari revealed that in the meeting, it was decided that they will not support Ruto or invite his allies to their meetings, due to their hard stance.

He said that the DP has been trying to weaken the region and is opposed to initiatives meant to benefit it, stating that it has as a result been decided that he is locked out.

“We shall negotiate on our fair share of stake in the next government, but Ruto does not want our unity since our unity is his biggest threat,” he said.

The meeting was also attended by former Kiambu governor William Kabogo, former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth and Ndung’u Gethenji of Tetu.

It was one of the unity meetings planned by TSP party leader Mwangi Kiunjuri, CCK’s Moses Kuria and former Gichugu MP Martha Karua.
