Sept. 09, 2019
- The senator warned both Tanga Tanga, Kieleweke leaders will be losers if they do not put their acts together
- He condemned what happened in Murang'a where Jubilee politicians caused chaos in a church while fighting over who should be master of ceremony
- Kieleweke and Tanga Tanga leaders have been at each other's throats in brutal battle to take control of the vote rich Mount Kenya ahead of 2022 duel
Nominated senator Isaac Mwaura has warned the ongoing fight between Tanga Tanga and Kieleweke could cost Central Kenya politically come 2022.
Mwaura condemned the incident that happened at Gitui Catholic church in Kiharu constituency, Muranga's county, where politicians from the two Jubilee party factions rudely disrupted a service over protocol.
Appearing on NTV on Monday, September 9, morning the senator stated both Kieleweke and Tanga Tanga will lose in the 2022 General Election and that Central Kenya will be the biggest casualty of the raging battle between the two camps.
"I would like to declare that both Tanga Tanga and Kieleweke will lose. The net loser in this whole debate is Central Kenya because when the mountain is split people will get a through pass. The question is what are we fighting about?" Mwaura posed.
The senator termed as abomination the Sunday church fight between nominated MP Maina Kamanda and his Kiharu counterpart Ndindi Nyoro indicating the two politicians went too far in their fight for political dominance in Central Kenya.
"This height of intolerance where people go to fight in a church is an abomination. You can have a situation where people go to make church the theater of the absurd, fighting and pushing over microphones. We must condemn it," he said.
The battle to take control of the Mount Kenya voting bloc has been gathering steam in the recent months pitting Jubilee leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto and those perceived to be allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Although the president has repeatedly warned leaders against premature 2022 politics to give room for development and service delivery, that is yet to happen as leaders from both sides of the political divide continue to traverse the country to push their political agendas.
Among the issues fueling the early campaigns are the renewed push for a referendum to amend the Constitution, the famous March 2018 handshake between Uhuru and Raila, Ruto's bitter political rival, and the ongoing anti-graft war which some of the leaders claimed was targeting certain individuals.
