Former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth has pledged to work with President Uhuru Kenyatta for the reminder of his term.
Speaking at at Mabae Primary School in Gatanga during a water project inspection tour organised by principal secretary Joseph Wairagu, Kenneth said that he would work towards the Unity of Mt Kenya region before and after 2022.
“It is impossible for the President to work with people who insult him. For the remaining part of his term, he needs people who support him to help him complete his development work,” he said.
He also said that he was in support of the Building Bridges Initiative, since it has calmed political temperatures in the country and also placed the Mt Kenya region at a convenient place for the 2022 succession politics.
“This is why I support the Building Bridges Initiative and after it is passed, we will sit down with the president and decide how to move forward,” he said.
A section of leaders who spoke during the event now want President Uhuru Kenyatta to appoint the once Presidential candidate to his cabinet.
Among those who spoke during the event include MPs Nduati Ngugi (Gatanga), Peter Kimari (Mathioya) and Gichuki Mugambi (Othaya).
