Nominated MP Maina Kamanda was appointed by the President on Friday to head the Mt. Kenya team and amplifying support for the BBI project in the region. Kamanda will be assisted by Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru. The former Starehe MP has been consistently against Ruto’s political ambition of succeeding Uhuru.
President Uhuru Kenyatta made the appointment during the Sagana meeting, where he met leaders drawn from the Mt Kenya region, days after the Kibra by-elections. The President noted that the concluded Kibra electioneering period was peaceful due to the handshake.
Maina Kamanda was among the esoteric few politicians who joined the ODM brigade in Kibra to campaign for Imran Okoth, an ODM candidate, yet Jubilee had a candidate in the name of Mariga. Speaking at Kibra during the campaign rallies, Kamanda repeatedly said that he was representing the President.
Kamanda is allied to the ‘Kieleweke’ team which includes the likes of Anne Waiguru, Gathoni Wa Muchomba, Nguchiri Wambugu, Kabando Wa Kabando, Lee Kinyanjui and Dennis Waweru among others. The team has been in support of BBI and the handshake.
