Peter Kenneth, a politician from Kirwara Sub-location of Gatanga Constituency in Murang’a County has revealed the focus of his meeting with president Uhurun on Tuesday, saying that it was only to talk about Muranga leaders’ several bandy words.
The chairperson of Kenya National Congress party met with the president when Uhuru had visited Muranga to honour the funeral of the ex-Kandara MP George Ndung’u Mwicigi, who he described as an outstanding MP who didn’t look to the government for fund.
Though not much is known about the president’s meeting with Kenya National Congress leader Peter Kenneth in Murang’a on Tuesday, some details reaching us say Peter Kenneth might be joining Uhuru’s coalition.
In the meeting said to have held in Murathe’s home in Gatanga, they both talked on Murang’a’s development plan and also the development of the whole Central Kenya region.
Muranga MPs and also the region’s Governor Mwangi wa Iria were also present at the meeting. However, Murathe told the media that the reported meeting saw bilateral talks focusing on the the Jubilee Alliance Party accomplishment in gaining fame across the country.
He added that the meetings was centered on the ordering of the important developments including water, roads, coffee and tea sectors, covering also illicit brews.
Murathe was quoted by The Star as saying
JAP is on course in the county. PK is coming on board.
Murathe also revealed that the president seized the opportunity to make peace between the Governor and the region’s MPs and asked for their collaboration.
Clement Wambugu (Mathioya), Alice Wahome (Kandara), Jamleck Kamau (Kigumo), Murang’s Woman Representative Sabina Chege and Tiras Ngahu (Kangema) are the MPs who were present in the meeting.
Jubilee coalition has reportedly been convincing Peter Kenneth to join the Governorship race either in Muranga or Nairobi. He however refused, insisting rather to be in the presidential race.
Peter Kenneth’s passion and desire to lead Kenyans became evident when he vied for the presidency in 2012. He made history by becoming a presidential candidate in Kenya without an African name. Even though he lost to president Uhuru Kenyatta, his impact was felt all over the political divide.
Just like president Uhuru, the former Gatanga MP has always urged people to vote neutral leaders who are not concerned about tribes, political party and other lines that might prompt tribalism or hateful acts.
Peter Kenneth vied for the Gatanga parliamentary seat in the 2002 general election and emerged victorious as a lawmaker and a representative for the constituency. Apart from being an M.P, he was also appointed an assistant minister in the ministry of finance and the ministry of planning & national development.
