Samuel Gichigi form the Aberdare West Parliamentary Group
In November 2015, MPs from Nyandarua, Nakuru and Laikipia counties formed the Aberdare West Parliamentary Group to break away from the Central Kenya Parliamentary Group chaired by Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru. They accused their counterparts from the larger central Kenya of double standards. The group, chaired by Kipipiri MP Samuel Gichigi.
The group was formed at Hippo Point Hotel in Nyahururu Town. The group says MPs from Kiambu, Murang’a, Nyeri and Kirinyaga are using them as a rubberstamp.
“For a long time we have been hunting together as central Kenya but when the prey is captured we are told that we are from Rift Valley. When we approach our Rift Valley brothers, we are told we are from central Kenya. The time is now ripe for us to chart our own path and fight for our space,” said Njoro MP Joseph Kiuna. The caucus brings together 27 MPs and 3 senators.
Samuel Gichigi said the interests of the three counties are different from those of the counties in the former central province. They have lagged behind in development because nobody supports their agenda.
“When appointments are made from the other counties in the former Central province, it is deemed that our counties are represented, which is not true.
