“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.
