The absence of Tharaka Nithi governor Muthomi Njuki in a meet people tour by the deputy president William Ruto on Sunday sparked different reactions from residents and political leaders over his stand between the two existing factions of Kieleweke and Tangatanga.
Gatundu south Mp Hon.Moses Kuria used the chance to demolish Njuki politically for what what he said is going againist the wave.Speaking during a stop over at Chuka town,Kuria said that in case Njuki decides to ditch the movement dubbed `Hustler Nation’ led by the dp Ruto,then he should be ready for a big and thunderous down fall come next polls.
“The deputy president William Ruto stood firmly with Njuki for his election as a governor in last elections but when he is needed by the dp for his support he is being coward,tell him that we will be revisiting the matter” Kuria said.
During the visit,the BBI politics took toll with Ruto allied MPs vowing to shoot down the document if it will not include issues affecting the common man like coffee and tea farming.
Ruto said as leaders they will not sit and watch taxpayers money being wasted in a contested referendum for no apparent reason while the leaders can board the consensus train and agree on the proposals without having to call for the referendum and engaging in unnecessary reggae.
“We have no problem with BBI and we are ready to pass it but we cannot agree on it if the issues affecting the common man is not included.The document already has catered for the politicians by allocating them various positions,and thus since Kenya belongs to us all let the common man also benefit,” Ruto argued.
The tour was graced by various leaders from the county led by Senator Kithuure Kindiki,Hon. Beatrice Nkatha,Maara MP Kareke Mbiuki,Chuka Igambangombe MP Patrick Munene and various MCAs.
Also present were MPs from different counties led by Gatundu south Mp Moses Kuria,Faith Gitau of Nyandarua,Ndindi Nyoro of Kiharu,Wangui Ngirici of Kirinyaga,Buuri mp Mugambi Rindikiiri among others.
