Service Party leader Mwangi Kiunjuri has revealed what it takes to ensure Vice President William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga are assured of the votes from Mount Kenya.
Speaking at Sisimunda Muthoni’s funeral in Mberee, Embu County on Saturday, October 16, Kiunjuri asserted that presidential aspirants must commit to a section of constitutional changes within 100 days in power.
The aim is to ensure that the region has an equal share of national resources and representation in parliament in relation to the region’s staff.

“If you really want to take care of the voters of Mount Kenya, you have to make sure that you change the constitution within the first 100 days of your term so that we can have that equality,” he said.
Addressing those in mourning, Kiunjuri said none of the seekers was assured of the area.
“If you want our votes, you have to make sure there will be a tie vote. One man, one vote, one shilling,” he noted.
The TSP party leader added that the residents of Mount Kenya had been sidelined by politicians who claimed that amending the constitution would only win part of the leadership’s government positions.
“No one should brag about being the hub of the Mount Kenya region. How can you boast of being the hub of the Mount Kenya region when you haven’t been elected yet?” Kiunjuri posed.
The TSP leader has toured different parts of the Mount Kenya region, urging the mountain not to give in to the cheap antics of the wannabes.
Alongside Martha Karua (Narc-Kenya) and Gatundu MP South Moses Kuria, the three met with various presidential contenders in a bid to unveil their plans for the Mount Kenya region ahead of the 2022 elections.
“There is a mission to make sure the votes from Mount Kenya are dispersed and we will lose our respect, we should not be proud of themselves, we have numbers but in politics they have no ‘importance unless there is unity in numbers, “he said previously. .
