Githinji pointed out that they support the President’s agenda on development.

“We support the President but the party seems to affect many aspirants. We have bulldozers in the party and are messing up aspirants ahead of elections later this month. We urge the President to step in and call political bundits within the party on one table before the elections,” he said.
