President Uhuru Kenyatta has called for an urgent meeting with all Jubilee party leaders from Central Kenya amidst mounting political temperatures.
This meeting is happening at Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri County, currently underway.
President Uhuru summoned all elected and nominated Jubilee leaders from the central region for deliberations on various issues, including development projects.
In the view of Muranga Women Representative Sabina Chege, the meeting will fade off the controversies concerning the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) that has divided Jubilee leaders in the region.
The main agenda of the meeting will concern the launch of the BBI report, which is a result of the March 9, 2018 peace deal between opposition leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The leaders from Central Kenya have in the past been complaining of being left out of the Governmental development agenda even though they voted overwhelmingly for the Jubilee government.
The leaders attending the meeting are drawn from Gema communities both from the region and those from the diaspora such as Lamu, Nakuru, Nairobi and Kajiado among others.
The leaders started streaming in at around 6 am.
The President arrived at the lodge aboard a Kenya Airforce chopper and landed at the Sagana state lodge landing base at exactly 12.11 pm.
Mobile phones, wristwatches, rings, earrings, bangles and any other electronic gadgets were not allowed inside.
He was received by Nyeri governor Mutahi Kahiga, MPs Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira) and Kanini Kega (Kieni).
The master of ceremony at the event will be former Nyeri Senator Mutahi Kagwe, a celebrated Mt Kenya leader.
