The National Alliance party officials in Laikipia have open-heartedly welcomed former cabinet minister in both the governments of President Moi and Kenyatta.
The Mkenya Solidarity Movement party leader Mr. Godfrey Gitahi Kariuki, commonly known as GG, ditched his party last month and joined Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta’s TNA.
More than 200 party heads drawn from the entire Laikipia County met at Thuigu Hotel in Nanyuki town where they applauded the veteran politician who was an exception.
They elected the party’s interim county chairman, first and second vice-chairman, secretary, organizing secretary, treasurer and women leader.
The newly elected county interim chairman James Kariuki said that the former Laikipia West Member of Parliament made an epic decision by joining TNA party as it will give him the due support.
The first deputy chairman Christopher Maitho who is also the interim chairman for Laikipia East constituency praised the newly elected county head saying that he has been hardworking and supportive to TNA.
“TNA is a party with a vision and the best suit party that is destined towards leadership. Any person is free to join”, said Maitho.
Other county officials elected were David Gitonga as the second vice-chairman, Jane Mwangi as secretary, Michael Kabochi as organizing secretary, George Kabugi as treasurer, and Mary Nyambura as the women leader.
The party is optimistic that the country will hold peaceful elections and that Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta will emerge victorious.
GG is now contesting for the Laikipia senator seat on a TNA ticket.
Former Mungiki Maina Njenga had been embroiled in a tug-of-war with GG since June this year after Njenga stormed and hijacked a Mkenya Solidarity Movement rally at Kamukunji in Nairobi with a host of ODM MPs.
