Maina Njenga claimed that he supported the DPM’s presidential campaign in 2002, when Uhuru was Kanu’s and former President Moi’s preferred choice for State House.
“I know Uhuru very well. In 2002, I championed his campaigns as I went to every part of the country lobbying for his presidency. He can still come we sit down and bury the hatchet,” said Njenga.
But contacted on Sunday on phone, Uhuru’s spokesman Mr Munyori Buku refused to comment on the allegations by Njenga.
Njenga accused Uhuru of failing to address challenges facing the youth in Central Kenya, adding that this led him (Uhuru) to lose their support.
“I want to remind him that charity begins at home, so Uhuru should not jeopardise his youth support base in Central,” said Maina.
Njenga, who declared that he would be seeking a political seat in the coming general election, has vowed to engage Uhuru in a political supremacy battle in his Central Province backyard to the end.
He said he plans to attend a meeting in Limuru on Wednesday dubbed Limuru 2B, to be addressed by among others, retired Anglican Church Archbishop Dr David Gitari.
The meeting is to counter an earlier one organised by leaders of the Gikuyu Embu and Meru Association (Gema) that endorsed Uhuru to carry the presidential torch for Central Kenya in the coming general election.
