Embu Re­formists What­sApp group, led by Run­yen­jes Cen­tral MCA Steve Munene, said Muturi’s en­dorse­ment is ret­ro­gres­sive, di­vi­sive, un­ac­cept­able, and highly mo­ti­vated by greed. Mem­bers de­manded an apol­ogy from Muturi. They held a press con­fer­ence at the Izaak Wal­ton Inn, Embu town. Present were Am­brose Njeru, Cath­leen Gakii, Eliud Njiru, Erick Tip­pis, Fredrick Nya­gah and Pius Ki­man­thi. They said clan meet­ings will cre­ate an­i­mos­ity and di­vide the res­i­dents. tha said this would cre­ate con­flicts.

“In my view, which is the view of the com­mon mwananchi, clan­ship is not the way to go in seek­ing proper lead­er­ship for the county,” Ku­man­tha said.

He said churches have been try­ing to end clan­ship. Ku­man­tha said in 2014, it was agreed dur­ing a meet­ing at Nyangwa in Mbeere North that peo­ple should work to­wards unity.

He said clan­ship has for many years con­trib­uted to un­der­de­vel­op­ment in Mbeere sub­coun­ties. The Embu Re­formist Youth Group urged Na­tional Co­he­sion and In­te­gra­tion Com­mis­sion chair­man Fran­cis ole Ka­paro to in­ves­ti­gate Muturi for cre­at­ing dishar­mony in the county.
