Justin Muturi has now joined the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta as the Mount Kenya Kingpin.
According to a local publication, the 64-year-old is aiming to unite the region as he packages himself for his 2022 political ambitions.
Speaker Muturi has kept the majority of his political life out of the public scrutiny and only makes appearances on special occasions.
His first public appearance this year was at President Uhuru’s Sagana meeting, prior to that he had attended the burial of politician Joe Nyaga.
Even as the President moved to consolidate his base, the succession intrigues have narrowed to infighting between two senior members of his Cabinet one from Mt Kenya East and the other from Mt Kenya West.
The tension played out on Friday night to the extent that there was an attempt to lock Muturi out of the Sagana meeting
Mt. Kenya have been a point of political concern maybe due to its huge number of registered voters.
Despite Mt. Kenya's huge number of voters there have been political wrangling of Mt. Kenya leaders with the fight for top positions.
