Friday, May 15, 2020 – Kikuyu Council of Elders has warned Kenyans against questioning President Uhuru Kenyatta’s move to fumigate the Jubilee Party’s Senate leadership.
On Monday, Uhuru sacked Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, and Nakuru’s Susan Kihika as Majority Leader and Majority Whip respectively.
Their places were taken by Samuel Poghisio and Irungu Kang’ata.
The changes have been opposed by leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto.
But the Council’s Chairman Wachira Wa Kiago said that the President should not be judged or blamed for changes in the party.
He also spoke about a split in Mt Kenya region saying the region has been divided since independence and everything is ok.
“Just like the time of the late politician Kenneth Matiba and [retired President Mwai] Kibaki, Mt Kenya region also was split,” he said.
The Council’s Secretary-General, Peter Munga, said that Uhuru should not be afraid or stop doing what is right by Jubilee Party.
“The president is the head of the party and he cannot waste time with people who do not want unity,” Munga said.
