Former Maragua MP Elias Mbau who was part of those who drafted the memorandum and handed it over to Raila spoke to Nation Africa and revealed the demands made by the elders to Raila in exchange for their support.
According to the MP, mount Kenya elders demanded that Raila must award the people from Mount Kenya positions commensurate with their total number of votes and the political power they wield.
"We were clear in the memorandum that we wanted to see one us playing the role of a waiting president," said the former legislator.
The former legislator said that they made a follow up on their demands and Raila promised to fulfill the demands to the fullest. With rising tension on Raila's running mate tension, the MP said that they're clearly watching to see if their demands will be met.
