Big Blow to Ruto After Kiunjuri Said Mt Kenya Will Vote For Anyone Who Will Change The Constitution

With less than 10 months in to the general elections, Political Analysts would be vindicated after stating that before the 2022 presidential race, unexpected and drastic changes will have rocked the political space.

Well, Kiunjuri who was solidly behind Deputy President William Ruto and opposed Constitutional changes has now made a U-turn and claimed that since Mt Kenya Region has been under-represented for ages, they will elect a presidential candidate in 2022 who will assure constitution changes to fit in their population and equal resource allocation.

Speaking during a funeral in Siakago, Mbeere North in Embu County, Kiunjuri said that he is not regretting his sentiments affirming that the constitution must be changed within the first 100 days.

"If you want Mt Kenya votes, you must assure us of 'One Man One Vote One Shilling,' and the only way that can be achieved is by changing the Constitution. We need to change the constitution to get away with social injustices," said Kiunjuri.

The former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary who is among party leaders in the Mount Kenya Unity Forum further criticized Deouty President William Ruto and his allies for stating that BBI was only made to expand the constitution, not pointing out on the benefits the report possessed.
