Speaker, Justin Muturi, has remained on his ground that he is the Mt Kenya spokesman regardless of certain leaders opposing his enthronement.
Muturi, a friend to President Uhuru Kenyatta, was delegated as Mt Kenya spokesman in a ceremony held at Mukuru wa Nyagathanga’s shrine, Murang’a county, a week ago.
The Speaker’s crowning ceremony has pointedly divided the Mt Kenya region into Mt Kenya West and East.
Mt Kenya East includes Embu, Meru, and Tharaka Nithi areas while West involves Central Kenya and Nakuru county.
Mt Kenya East backings Muturi’s enthronement while West is against.
Muturi, who tended to journalists on Saturday, said those opposing his were “political novices.”
He said the elders who made him spokesperson were ‘visionary’ and added that Mt Kenya East merited a seat at the national level.
“Every year, we cannot be shown the way. It is time to be followed.
“We cannot follow them all the time,” Muturi, who was a one-time Siakago MP, stated.
