Kenyan President denies alleged meeting with Mt. Kenya leaders
President Uhuru Kenyatta has rubbished information on a purported meeting between him and Central Kenya leaders.
“His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta’s attention has been drawn to misleading information circulating online on a purported meeting with Central Kenya elected leaders this week,” read part of the statement released by the State House on Thursday, March 17, 2022.
According to the State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena, President Kenyatta did not convene nor postpone any such meeting. Therefore, the information is false and misleading.
Kanze said Uhuru’s diary for the remainder of the week and the weekend ahead has several public engagements of which Kenyans will be duly informed through established platforms.
Some leaders with access to the information said they received an invitation message on Thursday.
They also claimed that Uhuru stated that the meeting was called off following consultations.
“After wide consultations, I have deferred the meeting that was scheduled for tomorrow, Friday 18th March 2022, at Statehouse Nairobi, with MPs, Senators and Governors, from the Mt Kenya region, to a later date, which will be communicated to you, in due course,” read the message.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
