The MP is among the conveners of the ongoing meetings between Mt Kenya leaders, a job he has been doing alongside TSP party leader Mwangi Kiunjuri and former Gichugu MP Martha Karua.
He has said that on top of the Deputy President slot, the leaders, who are pushing for the inclusion of Mt Kenya interests in the next government, have also made it a condition that it's given at least 40 percent of government appointments due to it's vote strength.
But these remarks have been dismissed by the other leaders, who, while addressing the media in Naivasha on Monday, also didn't give any demands to those eyeing the Mt Kenya vote for their 2022 bids.
Interestingly, Kuria was also present. Others were former Kiambu governor William Kabogo, ex-Tetu MP Ndung'u Gethenji, former Assistant Minister Koigi Wamwere and Kiambu Town MP Jude Njomo.
Karua said that their meeting at the Lake Naivasha Resort was all about resource allocation and equity and that they never touched on the positions to be given to the region or any of them.
"Every leader has the right to raise his demands but as a forum we only discussed issues currently facing the region,” said the NARC Kenya leader.
"We are committed to uniting Mt Kenya and the diaspora and the issues we discussed revolved around security of persons and parties, equity of representation and equity in sharing resources and development,” she added.
