President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto should forget the Tharaka-Nithi's support if they do not consider people from the county in the ongoing Cabinet appointments, Governor Muthomi Njuki has said.
Speaking during an event at the county headquarters Kathwana on Monday, Mr Njuki said he does not regret making the remarks because he is expressing the feelings of the people.
“Let the President clearly know that we are still watching and waiting as he continues to appoint principal secretaries and ambassadors without picking one from our county,” said Mr Njuki.
He added that if Mr Kenyatta will exhausts the jobs without appointing someone from the region, no one from Jubilee government should expect support in 2022.
In what seemed to be an attack on Senator Kithure Kindiki, the county boss said he had nothing to lose by speaking his mind.
“I am not appointed by anybody but elected by my people,” he said.
Last Friday during an event at Chiakariga Girls’ High School in Tharaka Constituency, the governor publically differed with Prof Kindiki on whether the county should withdraw its support for Jubilee government if no more people are appointed from the region.
