A section of Kikuyu elders has come forward to disown the delegation that visited Raila Odinga’s rural home a few days ago.
The elders who are under “Kiama kia Ma” said the delegation to Raila’s home was neither sent by their council nor President Kenyatta.
They said the visit had caught them by surprise that the delegation had purported to be the representatives of the entire Mt Kenya region.
The leaders who accused their counterparts of advancing their personal interests in the name of Kikuyu people in what the referred to as “politics of division” has vowed to fight back the “leaders with personal interests auctioning the Mt. Kenya region” to the highest bidder ahead of the 2022 general elections.
The former Prime Minister dismissed the endorsement claims saying the meeting was meant to solidify the relationship between Kikuyu and Luo communities and other communities as well should as well come on board.

“Jana tulikuwa hapa na wageni wengi sana kutoka mlima Kenya. Walikuja kututembelea kama marafiki tukasema kwamba hiyo urafiki sio tu ya makabili mbili tu lakini urafiki tunataka ienee katika taifa letu lote. Wakenya waungane pamoja ili waweze kutembea pamoja. Hiyo ndiyo sababu ya mkutano wa jana,” he said.
Nairobi businessman Jimmy Wanjigi who was the chief guest at the fundraising stated that now Jubilee party is crumbling, those who support Mr. Odinga should join ODM especially politicians from Mount Kenya.
“Waandishi wa habari ambao walisema ati jamaa walikuja hapa kuteua Raila, hapana! Mseme ukweli. Hakuna mtu alisema mambo kama hayo,” Mr. Odinga who was speaking during a fundraising at the St. Michael’s and all Angels Cathedral Bondo ACK church in Bondo on Sunday said.
