Mount Kenya Foundation tycoons have cancelled today’s meeting with OKA principles that was scheduled to take place at Safari Park hotel.

Leaders Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Gideon Moi (KANU) and Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya were scheduled to meet the business tycoons from Mt Kenya to chart the region’s economic future.

On Tuesday this week, the group endorsed former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s 2022 presidential bid.

The group is led by former Equity Bank chairman Peter Munga, former Kenya Revenue Authority Commissioner General Michael Waweru and former Kenya Airports Authority chairman George Muhoho among other notable names.

Mount Kenya Foundation plays a key role in every electioneering period as they help to mobilize funds to support presidential candidates from the region.

According to a reliable source, the MKF postponed the meeting to next week after some officials placed the request.

“The meeting with the OKA team will be held next week. It was a mutual agreement to postpone it as some officials were held up today, “the source told People Daily Digital.

The source said that the meeting was supposed to interview the prospective candidates ahead of the 2022 elections.

“MKF is currently conducting interviews to seek the best candidate to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta," the source added.

People Daily Digital has however verified that the group won’t interview deputy president William Ruto.
