President Uhuru Kenyatta has has postponed a meeting with Mt Kenya elected leaders scheduled for Friday, March 18.

The postponement come after leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto announced that they will not be participating in the meeting.

According to President Uhuru, he postponed the meeting following consultation on the same.

The President said he will have the meeting in the near future.

"After wide consultations, I have deferred the meeting that was scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, March 18th 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," a message by President Uhuru read.

Among the leaders who had announced that they will not attend the meeting include Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

Kuria noted that he won't attend the meeting because the President ignored them when they needed him most.

The Gatundu South MP said it is meaningless to attend President Uhuru's meeting just a few days before the August 9, polls.

According to Kuria, Uhuru's endorsement of ODM leader Raila Odinga has made the invite fishier and not worth attending.

"Mt Kenya leaders have been waiting for a proper sit down for 4 years. To call them 143 days before the election and when you have already declared yourself the campaign manager for Kitendawili is contemptuous. With the utmost respect and deep regret, just let us be," he said
