Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika led seven other MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto in making a political u-turn to support President Uhuru Kenyatta, just hours ahead of the parliamentary group meeting scheduled for Tuesday, June 2.
Speaking from Hotel Kunste in Nakuru town on Monday evening, June 1, the legislators stated that they were willing to work together with the president to ensure that the Big 4 agenda is achieved.
“When we are told that we have failed to support the president, we have never failed to support any of his bills, his policies or any of his missions in parliament.
“But if he (Uhuru) feels that by having a different team he will be able to deliver more for our people, that is what we are saying we fully support,” Kihika affirmed.
She, however, complained that the right procedures in calling for the parliamentary group meeting had not been followed.
“The law requires when you call for a PG, you give an agenda and not through a text message,” she added.
