Friday May 22, 2020 – Njuri Ncheke elders have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta not to punish Tharaka Nithi Senator, Kithure Kindiki, but to let them do it instead.
The Council’s Secretary General, Josphat Murangiri, chairman Linus Kathera and the national executive team asked Uhuru to allow them to summon the Senate Deputy Speaker and reprimand him for disobeying the President.
Jubilee Party is today planning to kick out the Senator from his position as the Senate’s Deputy Speaker.
Kindiki has been accused of insubordination after he skipped a Jubilee Senate Parliamentary Group meeting called by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House last Monday.
The elders said that they were shocked to learn from the media that the President wants to kick out Kindiki.
They urged Uhuru to let them handle the matter because Kindiki is a member of the elders’ council.
“A son who sins or goes astray is not killed but he is brought to the elders for discipline.”
“Our cry is to Uhuru to allow us to summon Kindiki to discuss his conduct and ensure he toes the line. Don’t get annoyed alone, allow us to carry the burden,” Murangiri said at a Meru hotel.
