Leaders allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta will retreat to Nyeri to plot a way forward, ahead of the 2022 General Elections.

Leaders allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta are set to meet in Nyeri on Saturday, June 12, and hold talks over his succession and address the dwindling support for the Head of State in the region.

The leaders constituted from the Gema communities, will meet at the Lusoi lodge in Nyeri where they will plot political unity for the region ahead of 2022.

A number of governors will grace the event, among them; Anne Waiguru (Kirinyaga), Lee Kinyanjui (Nakuru), James Nyoro (Kiambu), Ndiritu Muriithi (Laikipia) and Mwangi wa Iria (Murang'a).

Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo and Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya.

"I have been invited and I'll be involved in the discussions for the political unity of Mt. Kenya," Munya stated.

Daily Nation on June 12, reported that the President Kenyatta allies had extended invitations to leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto.

Also invited is a faction that was heavily involved in the coronation of National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.

According to insiders, the meeting will aim to identify a successor for President Kenyatta, prepare for voter registration, push for a free trade agreement within the counties, and lobby for regional unity.

A section of leaders allied to DP Ruto has, however, denied receiving invitations.

When contacted by a local daily, Gatundu South Members of Parliament Moses Kuria said, "I am not aware of such a planned meeting."
