Uhuru last weekend met a section of Mt Kenya leaders and influential groups from the region at the Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri, meetings that were largely aimed at uniting the region and rallying it behind the constitutional changes push.
But the MPs, who were left out because of their dalliance with Ruto, who has fallen out with the President, now say that their absence did more harm than good, after Uhuru had them locked out to avoid being told the truth.
Speaking at the burial of Naivasha MP Jayne Kihara's father in law Harrison Waiganjo in Kahuguini village on Saturday, they said that Uhuru's action has actually caused even more division in Central, revealing that things are actually worsening.
"Things did not remain the same, they got worse after they failed to invite us. They feared that we would tell President Uhuru the truth about various economic challenges of our people” Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria said, according to the People Daily.
Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua echoed the remarks, advising Uhuru to focus on bettering the lives of his people and keep off the 2022 succession debate and let the people, whom he said owe Ruto support in 2022, decide how they want to vote
Nyandarua Woman Representative Faith Gitau used the event to drum up support for Ruto, urging the region to support him for his backing of Uhuru in 2023 and 2017, which handed Uhuru the top seat.
“We used his back to ascend to power and I urge you to remember him when his time comes in 2022. We want a God-fearing leader who also understands the challenges of common Kenyans,” she said.
