The Star (Kenya) - - Region -

An el­ders’ coun­cil has de­nied claims it par­tic­i­pated in com­ing up with a po­lit­i­cal MoU in 2013 on how to share po­lit­i­cal seats be­tween the Embu and Mbeere com­mu­ni­ties. Embu’s Nyangi Ndi­iriri Coun­cil of El­ders, said to have part­nered with its Mbeere coun­ter­parts, yes­ter­day said the power-shar­ing deal ended pre­ma­turely. Nyangi Ndi­iriri coun­cil chair­man An­drew Ireri (pic­tured) said el­ders came up with a bind­ing com­pre­hen­sive agree­ment, but it was not for­malised be­cause Ngome el­ders de­clined to sign it.
