Njuri Ncheke Supreme Council of elders


The Njuri Ncheke Supreme Council of elders through its chairman Mzee Linus Kathera distanced itself from the announced coronation of National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.

Secretary-general Josphat Murangiri said on Monday that Muturi, who is from Mbeere, was only visiting Meru elders and no installation occurred.

“I don’t want to engage in witch hunt and stories. Some don’t even understand what happened. There was no coronation done to Muturi. He was brought by 200 Mbeere elders and when a son is presented to the elders, there is a way we receive them. The same way if our son has interests similar to Muturi’s,” Murangiri explained.

“The Njuri Ncheke, Kiama Kia Ma from Mt Kenya West, Ngome and Nyangindiri are not political formations. What we did here was a traditional event,” Murangiri said.

Some allies of Agriculture CS Peter Munya have rejected allegations he attended the event at Nchiru Shrine on Saturday as support of Muturi's coronation.

Former Nkuene councillor and veteran journalist Jamleck Mwongera said envy and jealousy against the rise of Munya were at the centre of the coronation confusion.

“The elders have implored a curse on me because of telling the truth. Many elders came out in my defence. I questioned the intent behind going for someone from Mbeere to be their spokesperson. I won’t fear for castigating their move even before alleged coronation happened."

"Do you think we lack leaders of integrity and character from Thuci to Ntonyiri? In Tharaka Nithi alone, we have Senator Professor Kithure Kindiki, Professor Erastus Njoka, former Governor Samuel Ragwa and close home, we have CS Munya, Governor Kiraitu Murungi, Senator Mithika Linturi, and South Imenti MP Kathuri Murungi, among many others,” Mwongera said.

“If there is anybody to take the mantle from Uhuru Kenyatta, it is Munya, who has made a mark in people’s lives by bringing more money to their pockets through coffee, tea, milk and other agriculture sectors. No one else can match Munya’s development within Mt Kenya. If there are an agreement and consultations and not board room meetings, then there is no problem,” Bundi said.
