Wachira Kiago, the leader of the Kikuyu Council of Elders, has been compelled to address the persistent assaults against former president Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to a report in the Nation's publication, Wachira Kiago, a prominent leader in Mt. Kenya, cautioned Mt. Kenya leaders against assaulting Mr. Kenyatta, claiming their popularity would suffer as a result.
Kiago pointed out that what Ruto's allies are doing to the former chief of state is identical to what Kenyatta's loyalists did to Ruto when he was vice president, and he therefore urged Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and his team to refrain from dividing the Mount Kenya region.
His statement follows Vice President Rigathi Gachagua's ruthless accusations against Kenyatta of stealing vast tracts of land and government funds.
In addition to DP Gachagua, members of parliament from the Kikuyu Constituency, Hon. Kimani Ichungwah and Trade CS Moses Kuria, are well-known for launching attacks against Mr. Kenyatta.
Since departing office eight months ago, it should be noted that the former president has maintained a low profile, which has sparked rumors, with his position on Ruto's presidency eliciting mixed reactions.
In addition, Kenyatta is in conflict with Ruto's faction over the Jubilee Party's separation from the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition.
Do you concur with the chairman of the Kikuyu Council of Elders, Wachira Kiago, that the Mount Kenya leaders' popularity will decline if they continue to attack former president Uhuru Kenyatta?
