Tangatanga wing in the Jubilee Party have been directed to keep off President Uhuru Kenyatta’s meetings in the region in what could be the flexing of muscles against rebels.

Only those from the Kieleweke camp, another amorphous wing in Jubilee that supports the President, will be allowed to attend the functions.

County Commissioners have been instructed not to allow the rebel MPs accused of maligning the President’s name into the meetings.

“What is irking the President is that the MPs have been moving around saying Uhuru is a lame-duck President by the mere fact that he is serving his second and last term in office, and that they will not need his endorsement in 2022,” an MP who did not want to go on record said.

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru did not mince her words against the rebel politicians.

“Those opposed to the President’s agenda have chosen a political direction that opposes the President. They spend Monday to Friday hurling insults at the President and his agenda,” Ms Waiguru said.

Meanwhile, Pentecostal Church leaders in Mt Kenya have called on the government to involve them in drumming up support for BBI to ensure the people own the process.

Addressing journalists at Riverbank Hotel in Nkubu town, they demanded the exclusion of leaders facing court cases from spearheading BBI campaigns at the grassroots.

The clerics said they were happy with the ‘handshake’ because it had united the nation
