Kiambu Women Rep Gathoni Wa Muchomba has criticized Mt Kenya Foundation members for endorsing ODM leader Raila Odinga in the race for succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta.
In a social Media post, Wamuchomba says the Mt Kenya Foundation is apolitical and therefore does not represent the view of the people in the region.
“Dear Mt Kenya Foundation. You have finally declared it’s Raila for president. Unfortunately, you are apolitical hence, you do not represent the views of the people from the Mt Kenya region. So statements like ‘our people’ are inappropriate in such commitments.” she stated.
He further criticized the foundation for been blind on important issues affecting the country such as the recent demolition in Githurai and Kahawa West as well as cattle rustling in Laikipia.
“Did you speak for the small traders in Githurai and Kahawa West when they lost lives and properties to demolishers? Did you speak when our people in Laikipia were sleeping in the cold and their animals stolen by rustler? So you only speak when brokering power?,” the vocal lawmaker questioned.
She said the foundation has no authority to represent the voices of the people from My Kenya, adding that she will not be influenced into voting for Raila’s presidency in the upcoming 2022 general elections.
Her remarks comes after ODM leader Raila Odinga On Tuesday, got a major boost to his state house bid after an elite team popularly known as Mount Kenya Foundation said they will back his quest.
