GG denies Njenga links
Mkenya Solidarity Movement party leader G.G Kariuki has dismissed suggestions he has formed an alliance with former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga. G.G says the party has its own structures and that Njenga is neither a member nor an official. He said his recent meeting held at Kamukunji grounds was gate-crashed by the former Mungiki boss who came accompanied by a section of ODM MPs. “The organisers had not been consulted by the leaders who came and started addressing the gathering,” he said.
The former Internal Security minister said it was unfortunate that a section of leaders were attempting to sabotage the party’s activities adding that anyone who wish to join the party should follow the right procedure. GG was addressing Mkenya Solidarity Movement party delegates at Rumuruti town in Laikipia West district.
He said the incident unfortunately portrayed that Maina and himself were in a political partnership, and that Maina Njenga would use the party as his vehicle to use in his bid to contest for the presidency. He said the party would not field a presidential candidate until party members decides otherwise adding that it was however ready to support a candidate whom it felt would bring the much needed political change.
He at the same time urged Kenyans to remain united and ensure that they elect visionary leaders when elections are called. He said it was necessary to vet the aspirants who have declared their interest to contest for the various political seats and avoid recycling individuals who do not perform.
G.G Kariuki who is contesting for the Laikipia County Senatorship also lashed out at the MPs attempt to mutilate the new constitution He said this hypocritical for the leaders to defile the constitution that was overwhelmingly passed by Kenyans. He said this was a sign of selfishness and Kenyans must rise up and condemn such a move.
