He said his party is TNA and he is supporting Uhuru Kenyatta for presidency. He said his rivals have been saying he is supporting Peter Kenneth, who is hopes to run for the presidency on a Kenyan National Congress ticket, which is not true.
“I am a life member of TNA and a strong supporter of Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta unlike some of my rivals among them the MP and other Murang’a MPs who have been forced to support the DPM,” said Gikonyo.
An aspiring Kandara MP has told off his rivals misleading voters that he does not speak Kikuyu.
