The Kikuyu elders have distanced themselves from that group saying they even never knew the event was happening.

The Kiama Kia Ma elder said those few elders who went to Bondo had their own hidden agenda.

More than 2000 elder met at Kambaa, Lari sub county where they termerd the fake elders as self seekers.


Elder Thiong’o Wa Gitau who is the elected Muthamaki (King) led the Kikuyu elders in condemning the fake ones.

He said elders do not ingage in politics but only seek God’s internation.

Thiong’o also denied claims that he was with the group organising the visit which he later on missed.

“A picture we had taken together with Kimemia and Mwathi was posted on social media, to attract people to join the trip, purporting we were part of the group which was attending. This was so misleading,” Gitau said.

“As a leader of Kikuyu elders, I cannot go. Elders are there to advise the community, but not to go to other communities’ political events” he added.
