LEADERS from the Maasai community yesterday called off their planned meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The meeting was to be held at State House.
Led by William ole Ntimama, the leaders said they had to urgently postpone it because their comrades in some areas had not been consulted and informed of the said meeting with the President.
“The President is the guardian, protector and a symbol of unity and so there is need for common understanding among community leaders and members so as to speak on one voice when meeting him,” Ntimama SAID.
He dismissed claims that the meeting was a plan to ditch ODM.
Ntimama said the allegations are rumours.
“We do not have any ill motive towards ODM by mobilising the Maasai community to meet the President. Uhuru is in the sitting government. It is his mandate to serve Kenyans including the Maasai people,” he said.
Ntimama was speaking at a Nairobi hotel during a meeting with some of the elders including Kajiado North MP Moses ole Sakuda and Former TLB boss ole Kamwaro who also supported the move by calling for more time before meeting the President.
