Meru Senator Mithika Linturi has attacked President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Jubilee administration just a few days after the legislator was dressed down by the Head of State at a meeting in State House last week. Speaking in Nkubu, the senator told Uhuru he will not tire from telling him the truth, and reminding him of the promises he made to Meru county nine years ago.
”When we criticise you it does not mean we do not love you. When you were elected by the people of Meru you promised certain things…I will not tire to tell you,” Senator Linturi said in Imenti South sub-county.

At a meeting in State House last week with Mt Kenya East leaders, President Uhuru Kenyatta took on the senator and UDA politics in Mt Kenya, telling him openly before the leaders present there was nothing he and the DP will get out of Mt Kenya with the negative propaganda against him (Uhuru).
The Head of State also expressed his desire to have Speaker of the National Assembly JB Muturi become the next Mt Kenya political spokesperson when he retires next year.
”The president was very clear from the onset. He wants the region in safe hands and JB Muturi fits the bill. Muturi knows he cannot win the presidency alone. The president wants him as part of the winning alliance, for sake of Mt Kenya,” a source confided to this publication.
