The Service Party (TSP) leader Mwangi Kiunjuri has warned all 2022 presidential aspirants seeking support of Mount Kenya Region that they will not vote for them blindly and that there must be an agreement.
Kiunjuri says that all presidential candidates will be forced to sign an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with he region, in order to ensure that the interests of the residents such as curbing unemployment, improving agriculture as well as other developmental projects are safeguarded.
In a report by the Star, Kiunjuri called upon the residents to support a leader who has the ability to improve their lives, arguing that gone are the days voters used to support political parties, and now what matters are ideologies.
He added that the divisions being witnessed between Mount Kenya East and Central will affect the region, and it was important for the residents to unite under their leaders and move towards 2022 as a bloc.
Deputy President William Ruto and his main rival, the opposition leader Raila Odinga have been pitching tents in the region in bid to woo their support.
The duo alongside OKA's Musalia Mudavadi have hinted of getting their running mates from the region.
