A previous Limuru 2B meeting organised by Njenga and others aborted after police blocked youth and organisers from the venue citing security concerns, drawing heavy criticism from Uhuru’s political rivals and a section of civil society.
Njenga said on Sunday that he hoped the police would allow them to exercise their constitutional right to assemble and chart their political destiny in Limuru on Wednesday.
One of the organisers of the meeting, Mr Wambugu Ngunjiri revealed that in addition to Rev Gitari as the key speaker, others expected to address the meeting include senior counsel and former Kabete MP Paul Muite, Imenti Central MP Gitobu Imanyara and his Igembe South counterpart Mithika Linturi.
Urging his supporters to attend the meeting without fear of the police, Njenga said the forum would lay the ground for his political journey.
“After there we will go to Mombasa and even engage the MRC (Mombasa Republican Council) that everyone is rushing to talk to. We will tell them that the problems they have are similar to what we have in Central and so they should not speak of secession,” said Njenga.
Speaking at his Hope International Ministries church, Njenga said he would organise a meeting at Nairobi’s Kamukunji grounds to declare the party on which he will contest a political seat, and guide his supporters on whom to back in the next elections. He did not, however, name the seat he would vie for.
“We saw Uhuru launch his party the other day and we also want to tell him that we will soon be launching ours. I will come back here and also tell you where we will stand come the next polls,” said Maina.
But Maina said he does not support political violence and urged youth in Central Kenya to restrain themselves from acts of political violence.
The former Mungiki leader also appeared to extend an olive branch to Uhuru, his alleged friend-turned-foe, saying despite their differences he was willing to talk with him and chart a common political destiny.
He said that contrary to allegations made in some quarters, his supporters had not planned to disrupt Uhuru’s political functions.
“If I am the one who led Uhuru’s campaign in 2002, how can I now be on the forefront to disrupt his meetings?” he posed?
