Led by Manyatta MP Gitonga Mukunji the leaders condemned the move stating it will undermine development agenda in the Mt Kenya region.

Speaking in Gaturi South ward, Mukunji said that leaders from the region should instead rally behind Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua for the benefits of their constituents, rather than engage in 2032 politics.

He noted the region has capable leaders including Interior CS Prof Kithure Kindiki and Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro among others but insisted that the succession politics will only divide the region.

“Mt kenya leaders should forge a united front by supporting all top political leaders in the region. We have a chance to produce the next President but we must be careful to cause divide our people,” he said.

The leaders called for meaningful engagement in development issues and an end to the premature debate on 2032 succession politics.
