The Kikuyu council of elders has affirmed their support for the ruling Jubilee Party and President Uhuru Kenyatta’s development agenda.
They said they were solidly behind President Kenyatta and his development agenda for the country and were neither allied to the ‘Tangatanga’ nor ‘kieleweke’ factions of the ruling party, whom they accused of antagonizing Kenyans.
“We do not subscribe to any political perspective of the two emerging rival groupings. Our support is towards the president and his government,” said the council’s Nyeri chapter vice chair Peter Njogu.
The council encouraged all leaders to concentrate on the task they were elected to perform of elevating economic status of Kenyans and desist from engaging in early campaigns for the 2022 presidential elections.
