President Uhuru Kenyatta received a boost in his quest for a second term at the country’s top office after over 17,000 members of Mau Mau War Veterans Association from Ukambani endorsed his re-election bid.

The elders maintained that the development score card for Jubilee’s government was evident and it was the high time for the Kamba community to reciprocate.

This coincided with the planned President’s visit in the region that is set for Thursday, June 22, the home turf of Wiper Party Leader, Kalonzo Musyoka.

Speaking during a meeting that was attended by officials and a section of members of the elders group at Mwala, Machakos County, the Mau Mau War Veterans Association Chairman, Rev. Peter Kiiti, termed Kalonzo as an enemy of development.

“Kalonzo has been in key government positions and has never influenced development projects in this region,” said Mr. Kiiti.

According to MzeeKiiti, the elders group had never been in opposition and will remain in government since they fought to be in the government and not in opposition.

They vowed to sensitize their kinsmen to re-elect all Jubilee candidates to ensure continuity of the development projects in the region.

The meeting was attended by Jubilee’s Women Representative Candidate, Agnes Kavindu Muthama, who called on the community to vote in Jubilee’s line up despite the perceived opposition’s wave.
