Murang'a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria has joined Deputy President William Ruto in dismissing Mount Kenya Foundation meetings that took place a couple of days ago, and brought together Raila Odinga and OKA leaders.
Speaking in Murang'a, the governor who has announced his presidential interests stated that the Chairman of the foundation, Peter Munga has been against his political career since 2013 despite coming from the same county.
He further criticized Munga for claiming that the forum had invited all presidential aspirants, stating that he has put up posters and billboards across the county to declare his bid, and it was disrespectful and selfish for Munga to that claim all contestants had been hosted by the MKF.
"Munga called other people and left me, I want to tell him I do not consider those meetings. We as Murang'a residents did not send him, and he did not consult with us," said Wa Iria.
He added, "I stand with those who are saying that a president will be decided by the voter, and I truly pity the members of MKF because they are only wasting their time, as Kenyans will decide who will be elected without those boardroom meetings."
