They also noted that Kindiki's move to drop his gubernatorial bid and take the front seat in popularizing the Kenya Kwanza Alliance across the country, is a proof of his resilience, dedication and hard work, and that his time for a higher position is ripe.

"It's time for the mountain to pay Tharaka Nithi which has been massively supporting the vote-rich region vote in the region’s preferred presidential candidate. We now want to give back and we want Kithure Kindiki who has resiliently and gallantly served this nation given the position," said Ng'ang'a.

Her remarks were supported by aspiring UDA Kiambu Woman Rep Anne Muratha.
