Kuria urged leaders from Jubilee Party strongholds to stop politicizing the issue as it will just work to their disadvantage.
“To fellow leaders in Mt Kenya region, on Thursday 10th January I issued a statement and appealed we now stop this debate and go work for our people.
“Yesterday some were still continuing with this escalation. More press conferences and personalized attacks will not help our people.
“Stop it please,” he wrote.
In recent days leaders from various regions have held pressers to reiterate that they are firmly behind the President.
On Thursday, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru and Homa Bay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga led a section of women leaders in dropping their hardline stances for the sake of development.
“We reject early campaigns that are polarising this country and opening wounds when elections are more than three years away.
“We reject politics that preach tribe against tribe, region against region and party against party,” said Waiguru.
She further added: “We reject in totality the politics of blackmail, intimidation, threats and bloodshed. We have been therefore before and we as women are not going back there again.”
