Kenneth addressed a rare press conference at the Serena Hotel where he was accompanied by various leaders including Martha Karua, Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, former assistant minister Kilemi Mwiria, among others.

The leaders defended President Kenyatta’s development track record and accused a section of leaders of politicizing development with the intention of replacing Kenyatta as the region’s king pin.

Handshake Deal

They also reiterated their support for the handshake deal led by President Kenyatta and ODM Leader Raila Odinga.

In an indirect attack on Ruto’s early 2022 campaign, Kenneth said it was inappropriate to campaign for a seat that would be occupied for the next four years.

The tanga tanga team has been going round the country as way of distracting the President from the Big Four Agenda, and also to prevent him from fighting corruption,” the leaders said in their statement.

Waititu directed his attack on Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, saying those addressing the President should not do so in a disrespectful manner.

Those who have attacked the President will regret it. You have seen some of them are even apologizing. We want to ask leaders to be sober when speaking, that is why we are fighting alcohol in Central Kenya,” the Governor said.
