Mt Kenya Leaders Finally Announce When They Will be Making Big Declaration About 2022

Kenyans should expect a major announcement from the Mt Kenya region in the coming days, one that will give answers to the existing political questions, they have been told.

The region is currently in the limelight, after some area leaders came together to decide what is to happen in regards to the approaching general polls.

It's worth noting that the region will not have a serious presidential aspirant next year, which has seen some leaders come together to issue demands to aspirants keen on the mountain's vote.

On Monday, they said that an announcement on the region's next move, especially now that President Uhuru Kenyatta, the region's kingpin is on his way out, will be made in Limuru before the end of the year.

The leaders, led by NARC party boss Martha Karua, made the remarks in a press briefing in Naivasha, Nakuru County, stating that their plan is to ensure that the region gets the best offer.

"This forum is not limited to the presidential race but to unite the Central Region and the diaspora. It is not a short-lived forum but one that will outlive us,” Karua, a former Gichugu MP, told the press.

The leaders said that they will be soon serving their list of demands to all presidential aspirants, stating that all this is aimed at ensuring that equitable resource allocation and decision making prevails.

Also present was former Kiambu governor William Kabogo, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and others. Earlier, Karua had met Kuria and TSP leader Mwangi Kiunjuri and announced that they will push on.

The same group has made it clear that among the demands those eyeing their backyard's support must keep is giving it the Deputy President position, as well as surrendering 40 percent of their government.
