Bad News For Those Eyeing Uhuru's Mt Kenya Position as His Cousin Reveals The New Plan

View pictures in App save up to 80% data. President Uhuru Kenyatta is fully in support of National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi and his latest moves, Uhuru's cousin and elder Kung'u Muigai has said.

Muturi was last month coronated as the new Mt Kenya spokesman, taking over from Uhuru, a move that has, however, been opposed by some Uhuru allies.

But Kung'u says that the president has no issue with Muturi being in charge and has actually handed him the job of representing him on political matters.

He says that henceforth, Uhuru will be communicating through Muturi, whose coronation has divided leaders from the mountain, with a section fighting it.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta will be making his communication to Mt Kenya residents via Muturi," Kung'u, who presided over Muturi's coronation event at the Mukurwe Wa Nyagathanga shrine, told The Star.

“Mount Kenya region will speak with one voice and nothing will stop this. We must plan as we wait for Uhuru’s directive," he is further quoted by the paper.

Muturi was on Wednesday given the greenlight to unite the region, after a meeting with a section of top leaders from his Mt Kenya East backyard.

Kung'u's remarks come as a blow to other area leaders who have been keen on succeeding Uhuru as the next kingpin, among them Murang'a governor Mwangi Wa Iria, one of those bitterly fighting the Speaker.

Wa Iria has since had elders from the Kikuyu community cleanse the shrine, claiming to have also reversed the coronation in the process.
