The meeting is believed to be a strategy meeting to deliberate on how to deal with the Building Bridges Initiative report and give the region a sense of direction in the wake of the report that has seen the President and his deputy read from different scripts.
The meeting brought together MPs, Senators and Woman Representatives who cried foul during President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Sagana meeting, alleging that they had been sidelined and humiliated.
Among the participants were Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, Embu Senator Njeru Ndwiga and Moses Kuria.
The Embu Senator stated that the team congregated at the hotel beginning yesterday (Friday) consult on the BBI report and would issue a statement at the end of the meeting
“We congregated here since last night. We are still consulting on the BBI report…We will be able to give a comprehensive statement from this region. We are still continuing with the deliberations and we will soon give comprehensive statement from this region.” Ndwiga stated.
“We slept here, we have been perusing the document (BBI report) and it is only fair for our people that we come up with a substantive direction…We are taking this exercise seriously.” Added Ndindi Nyoro.
The leaders however remained cagey about the details of what transpired in the meeting and instead urged the press to be patient for the final statement which they maintained wuld give the Mount Kenya region a clear direction on the way forward.
Conspicuously missing in action were MPs, Senators and Governors allied to the Kieleweke wing of Jubilee that supports the handshake and the BBI report.
The meeting was hurriedly convened barely three days after the report was made public at an event presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga at the Bomas of Kenya.
