Former senate deputy speaker, Hon Kithure Kindiki, who is Tharaka Nithi's senetor and a close Ally of deputy president William Ruto has broken his silence after allegations on installing National assembly Speaker as Mount Kenya region kingpin emerged.
According to Hon Kindiki, this moved is sponsored by the state maybe to counter the rise TangaTanga in the region as president Uhuru Kenyatta is soon expected to retire from Politics when his presidential terms expires.
"Speaker Muturi’s purpoted ordination as a spokesman of a section of Central Kenya region elders is a State project to try and direct next year’s vote in that region. Just like BBI, it reflects simplistic thinking during these complex times and it will have near zero political impact. The Governors trying to speak for the people are wasting their time and will be in for a rude shock," said Kindiki.
According to the senetor, Muturi is free to ascend office of spokesperson of a section of elders on cultural matters but not on Politics as it is expected. He also added that Politics is about influence and positions has no effect.
