The two met this evening during a Kikuyu Council of Elders meeting Chaired by its national Chairman Ndung’u Gaithuma.

The two shook hands as a goodwill gesture during a function held at Gwa Kibathi near the South Gate of Lake Nakuru National Park.

Amongst those in attendance were Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua, Jubilee National Strategy Coordinator, ex DC James Mwaura, and Governor wannabes John Mututho and Lee Kinyanjui.

Others present were Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria, Senate aspirant Karanja Kabage and Nakuru County’s Presidential Campaigns Coordinator Agricultural Engineer Maina Muhia.

Speaking during the occasion, Manyara said he and Karimi had dheld talks and resolved to work as a united front. Karimi also announced that he’s ready to work from the Jubilee County’s Milimani office where he has accepted to serve as Manyara’s Vice-Chairman.

However, sources quote Karimi as having demanded to be given three other slots in the Jubilee 19-persons interim leadership that will be filled by his close allies.

The development came ahead of a tour scheduled for Nakuru on Wednesday by Deputy President William Ruto.
