Meru leaders condemn Senate decison on Kindiki’s ouster

Meru leaders are rallying behind ousted Senate Deputy Speaker, Kithure Kindiki. They have condemned the Senate decision to remove Kindiki from his position.

The MPs claim that the Jubilee party is sidelining leaders from the Mt. Kenya region.

Some of the leaders spoke in support of Kindiki include; Mr. Josphat Gichunge, John Mutunga, Mugambi Rindikiri, Moses Kirima, Gitonga Murugara, Patrick Munene, Beatrice Nkatha, and Meru Senator Mithika Linturi.

Senator Linturi said that from the onset, the Jubilee party wanted to oust Kindiki.

“We knew we could not save him. However, I did not support the motion. I could not vote him out because he had not done anything wrong,” Linturi said.


Linturi said that the Jubilee party is victimizing them because they identify with Deputy President William Ruto.

Mugambi Rindikiri, the Buuri MP alleged that the ongoing purge will benefit former political rivals that have befriended President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Josphat Kabeabea says that the opposition has divided the Jubilee party into two factions.

“We all support the President 100 percent. But the question we have is who will inherit him? After 2022, what other support does he need? He should give us space to support whoever we want,” the Tigania East MP said

Moses Kirima said that the party is sidelining leaders from the Mt. Kenya region.

“We are very disappointed. Our friends are short-changing us again. The President is the chief architect of this plot,” the MP said.

Beatrice Nkatha, the  Tharaka Nithi Woman Representative, said that Kindiki’s ouster would leave the region out of government.

“We want the President to tell us what wrong our region has done. He should tell us that our votes are no longer useful within Jubilee,” one of the leaders said.

Njuri Ncheke elders chose to plead with President Uhuru Kenyatta. They asked him to forgive Kindiki and stop the ouster. However, the president never intervened.
