The 2022 succession politics has seen a fall out of Jubilee leaders especially those from the Mt. Kenya region, a reason for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s outburst on Sunday.

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru offer to unite the Mt. Kenya ahead of the 2022 elections has received a backlash from the majority of Kenyans who feel the first time Governor is not the right choice for that.

Speaking during a pro-handshake rally held by women leaders under the Embrace movement last weekend, Waiguru said political leaders from Mt. Kenya should come together and iron out their differences instead of disintegrating and accusing the President of sidelining the region, which is his political backyard.

“We want to come together first as people from Mt. Kenya region. And if others have failed to bring our people together. I commit to being that person. We will sit together, listen to your views and forge a way forward for the remaining three years,” said Waiguru.

“May it be on roads, water, electricity or any other issues, we will then forward this to President Uhuru Kenyatta. And that is what leaders should do. You go present your grievances to the president. But we cannot go complaining about the president every time something goes wrong.”

Reacting on Twitter Kenyans have expressed their backlash on Waiguru’s offer as the one to unite Mt. Kenya.
