Six leaders from Mt Kenya region have warned the Opposition against introducing a fresh agenda in planned talks on reforming the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
Led by Senate Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki, the legislators said the Opposition was working towards introducing new agenda in an effort to frustrate the electoral calendar and change the election date.
Speaking in Gatanga, Murang’a County, Prof Kindiki said the election date has been fixed for August 8, 2017.
“Jubilee is ready for the election. Our rivals should know that the talks will only deliberate on the agenda,” said Kithure.
Other MPs Peter Kamande (Maragua) Wachira Karani (Laikipia West) Nderitu Waweru (Ndaragwa) and Alice Wahome (Kandara) said they will ensure election the date remains as enshrined in the Constitution. The leaders were speaking during a fundraiser for a Mugumo Secondary School Form Three student, Samuel Njehia under invitation of Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau.
Njehia has been ill for three years and requires Sh1.5 million for surgery at a Nairobi Hospital. On the 2022 succession, Kindiki said nominated Senator Paul Njoroge is not a Jubilee spokesperson.
“It is only Senate Majority Leader and National Assembly Majority Leader that have the capacity to speak on behalf of Jubilee,” he said.
