Muturi vows to unite all Mt. Kenya political parties

Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has said he is going to lead an effort to unite all political parties in the Mt Kenya region under one umbrella.

Muturi said despite the region having the highest number of registered political parties, they are all moving individually towards the August general election, which he termed a big weakness.

He noted that other regions have major political parties that have sponsored presidential candidates, leaving Mt Kenya as the biggest voting block with disjointed political outfits.

Talks are ongoing behind the scenes to try to pool efforts together by heads of multiple political parties,” said Muturi

Muturi, who has declared his intention to vie for the presidential seat under a Democratic Party ticket, said his party would also seek consensus of the delegates to get a go-ahead to open talks with other coalitions.

He was addressing grassroots political leaders at Upperhill, near Limuru town, Kiambu County.

According to Muturi, if all Mt Kenya region political parties were to unite, they could shake all other political formations which have been using the region to hunt votes for other presidential candidates.

We cannot be used just as pawns in a political game, we need to unite and position ourselves as the biggest block to negotiate for the welfare of our people,” said Muturi.

Muturi noted that there was need for the people of Mt Kenya to speak in a united voice even as the region seeks coalitions with other political parties.

I call upon the people of Mt Kenya to be my ambassador towards uniting the mountain. My goal is to have a strong party from Mt Kenya,” he said

He said he would from now on use the slogan Wakenya Kwanza after his original motto, Kenya Kwanza was allegedly taken up by the UDA party of Deputy President William Ruto.
