Kiambu county has twelve constituencies: Gatundu South, Gatundu North, Juja, Thika Town, Ruiru, Githunguri, Kiambu, Kiambaa, Kikuyu, Kabete, Limuru and Lari.
Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa said although he left the country on Sunday, he had not received any invite from the organisers or the Office of the President.
“His office never invited me but maybe they sent them to those within the country,” the close ally of the Deputy President William Ruto told the Star.
“I would have been happy to join our President in the work of building the Lord’s house,” he added.
Mwaura said it would be wrong to say leaders from Mt Kenya region avoided the President in the harambee where Uhuru donated Sh3 million in cash and pledged another Sh4 million.
“To says that the President did not have MPs at the event would be untrue. He came in a very quiet manner. There was no fanfare, no mobilisation. He just came to worship and to contribute to the harambee,” Mwaura said.
He said the President did not stay long at the church since he was busy with the 110th African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Council of Ministers meeting being hosted by Nairobi.
“No leaders spoke before him. The President said he was going to be with guests who were in Nairobi for the ACP meeting, so he left early after giving his contribution,” he said.
Gatundu South Moses Kuria was conspicuously missing at the church event as he had accompanied the DP for a series of church meetings in Makueni, Embu and Nyeri counties.
