“Kwani Kenya ni Ya Nani?” CS Munya Speaks on Mt Kenya’s 2022 Move as Uhuru is Set to Exit

It is still not clear what Mt Kenya region plans to do as next year’s General Election is fast approaching and President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to retire.

There have been claims that the region will field a candidate in the presidential election after talks that Uhuru’s exit may leave a leadership void in the vote-rich region.

Agriculture CS Peter Munya has however said that Mt Kenya should not be left behind when the next government is being formed.

Munya said the region is part of Kenya and after President Uhuru hinted that he will support someone outside the Kikuyu and the Kalenjin communities for the 2022 General Election, the region needs to make sure it has a seat at the leadership table.

“Kenya is for all of us and we the people of Mt Kenya have the right to be involved in the leadership of Kenya. Kwani Kenya ni ya nani? No one can say they have more rights than others,” said Munya.

The CS further urged Mt Kenya region to work together and vote as a bloc come next year in order for them to position themselves at the best seat in the next government and bargain on how they can benefit.

“What will show that we have the strength to have a saying in the next government is when our votes are together. Let us not be split. The Mountain is one,” added Munya.
