Kalonzo in secret ‘invites only’ meeting

Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka held a silent lengthy meeting with supporters at a city hotel last evening as he moves to thwart Jubilee forays in Ukambani region.

The meeting at Nairobi Club was attended by only those invited and came just days after Kamba Council of Elders signed a pact with Gema elders at Masinga Dam Resort.

“Yes, the meeting went on well as planned beginning 4pm till after 8pm. The party leader brought together supporters from Ukambani region ostensibly to tame growing discontent,” One of the attendants said.

The source further told X News that the participants were notified and moblised through short text messages and no Member of Parliament or MCAs were allowed to attend the meeting.

“This is a reminder of our meeting tomorrow September 21st 2016 starting 4pm”, messages sent out read in part. There was growing discontent among the supporters over the meeting between Gema and Kamba elders that the supporters needed the party leader to attend,” said the source. 

A similar meeting is set to be held on Monday to discuss the way forward. 

According to the source the meeting was convened to counter another held between Kamba elders and Gema elders over the weekend. Those who attended the meeting indicated that Kalonzo was keen to play down any political agreement that might have been secretly sealed between the Kamba elders and their Gema counterparts.

The two communities on Friday resolved to engage President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Akamba political leadership to work together politically. 

Akamba Governing Council of Elders chairman Boniface Kilonzo, who read the resolutions reached at the meeting, said the council was working with the Jubilee government.

“Our Constitution spells out that we work with the government of the day,” said Kilonzo.

Although Gema and Kamba elders signed a non-political collaboration deal, insiders say they have agreed of a possible alliance in support of re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
