Kenya's succession politics have been a hot topic of debate, with politicians vying to succeed President Kenyatta touring the country in an attempt to not only win votes but also interact with local leaders ahead of the election.
Raila Odinga, one of the presidential candidates, has promised to meet with leaders from Mount Kenya and leave no stone unturned.
A group of Mt Kenya tycoons thought to be the country's oligarchs showed up at a star-studded event held at Safari Park Hotel on Tuesday to show their support for Raila's presidential bid.
Prominent billionaires who play key roles in Kenya's economy were present at the celebration, which was marked by pomp and colour.
The event was too important that Royal Media founder Samuel Kamau Macharia and Equity Bank founder Peter Munga could not afford to miss.
The meeting takes place a day after he (Raila) visited the Mt Kenya region, where he met with students, church leaders, and local leaders.
