The recent attack on the first family by Deputy President William Ruto’s close associates has also caught the Njuri Ncheke’s attention.
For starters, the Njuri Ncheke is not your ordinary elders you may be knowing. They are the Supreme Council of the Meru elders, who are believed to have powers to bless and curse those who go against their laws.
The Njuri Ncheke has also joined the ongoing chaos being witnessed in the country after two lawmakers allied to DP Ruto abused the President
MPs Oscar Sudi and Johana Ng’eno elicited mixed reactions when they attacked President Uhuru Kenyatta and his parents, founding father Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and former first lady, Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
The two demanded that the President leads the country by keeping in mind it belongs to all Kenyans.
They accused the President of sidelining his deputy, William Ruto, and heading the nation as a personal property belonging to the Kenyatta family.
Capital FM reports that Njuri Ncheke has condemned Ng’eno and Sudi over the remarks they made against the first family.
The elders had earlier announced the suspension of embattled Tharaka Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki.
The Standards reports that they suspended the governor as a senior elder because of the corruption allegations that have been raised against him
They said the governor won’t perform any duty as an elder until his name is cleared from the alleged corruption claim.
“We love you Bwana Njuki, but we love our country more and have a moral duty to stand with any actions that are taken to safeguard taxpayers’ resources,” Njuri Secretary-General Josephat Murangiri announced as quoted by the Standard.
Meanwhile, a section of Kenyans is still calling out on police to arrest Oscar Sudi.
Sudi has been engaging the police in a hide and seek battle since Thursday, with several officers camping at his home for the better part of Saturday and Friday night.
Ng’eno on the other is out on a bond pending his guess hearing.
