In the meeting held on September 6, Karua said they were brainstorming on the way forward for the region, even as they join the rest of the country in uniting Kenyans.
While describing them as like-minded members of the Jubilee party, Karua said they want to work together as a region in one unifying coalition, but no one will be asked to leave their respective parties.
The leaders read from the same script, promising to work together despite being in different political parties ahead of the 2022 General Elections.
â€œWe are committed to multipartism. No one is being asked to leave their party unless they wish to do so. We will have many parties but unity of purpose,â€ Karua noted.
Karua said that the commitment is for the people of Kenya, and for that to happen, leaders must be united first.
She noted that in order to bring the leaders together, she will bring together all elected MPs in the next meeting, without revealing when and where it will be held.
â€œWe have also resolved that we are going to reach out to every elected MP in Mount Kenya region, which we hope will be in the coming week,â€ Karua said, adding that the date and time will be communicated soon.
She said the details that will emerge in the next meeting will be the wishlist, which will be presented to presidential candidates who need the region’s support.
Martha was optimistic, adding that she hopes all the leaders who will be invited for the next meeting will show up. “I hope to meet a more diverse group in her next meeting,” she said.
