Kiunjuri Lists New Conditions That a Presidential Candidate Must Have to Win The Support of Mt Kenya

Mwangi Kiunjuri has stated that Central Region will go for a presidential candidate who will advocate for Constitutional reforms within the first one hundred days of his or her presidency.

Kiunjuri said that the region has been under represented since independence and that it is time they are given a fair share of the government's resources in accordance to their populations.

While speaking in Embu County on Saturday, the former Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture maintained that they will push for a presidential leader who will show how he will implement the 'One Man One Vote' initiative.

"We can not have one man one shilling one vote if we don’t have a referendum. Whoever wants our support must guarantee us a referendum in the first 100 days. This should be an irreducible minimum for Mount Kenya region," said Kiunjuri as quoted by KBC.

He went on to state that any leader seeking the presidency must assign at least 10 per cent of the government's money to Agriculture and honour the Malabo declaration.
