Mt Kenya Governors Signal Mass Exit From Uhuru's Party

Governors Lee Kinyanjui(Nakuru), Francis Kimemia (Nyandarua), James Nyoro (Kiambu) and Nderitu Mureithi (Laikipia) have revealed that they are in talks and soon they will unveil a coalition ahead of the 2022 general elections.

Governors from the ruling party endorsed talks chaired by the Party of National Unity (PNU) and the Ubuntu Peoples Forum (UPF) to form an alliance for 2022.

"As leaders with a keen interest in the future of our nation, we are hosting varied conversations with other leaders and political parties for the good of all of us. The Party of National Unity (PNU ) and Ubuntu Peoples Forum (UPF) are in early conversations to build on their respective political advantage for the purpose of making a positive change in our country. We will also actively engage like-minded political actors, within and beyond, for the purpose of setting a formidable force. The future is greater when we are together. We shall be issuing a comprehensive statement on the progress in due course," the statement read.

The governors are looking forward to leave the party since it has been marred with mass exit in the recent past.

Kinyanjui has been a frontrunner in supporting ODM leader Raila Odinga in his presidential bid. The county chief stated that he will support Odinga after he stood with President Kenyatta during his second term in office
