Seven Embu Council of elders are calling for a negotiated democracy on sharing of political seats between the Embu and Mbeere communities.
The elders said that on January 2012 elders from Embu and Mbeere had an agreement where Embu side was to produce a Governor and Mbeere side a senator, an agreement that was supposed to last for ten years.
They reveal that negotiated democracy will go a long way in resolving division witnessed between the two communities on how to share county seats as campaigns intensify in the country.
In a show of unity and peace in the county, seven council of elders have merged and formed Embu Nyangi-Ngome council of elders which will now play a big role in uniting Embu and Mbeere communities and also give direction on the politic as well as ensuring that residents will adhere to the negotiated democracy.
Speaking to the media at Embu hotel after unveiling the new outfit the elder’s spokesman Benson Kanyeji noted that the council will ensure there will be peace during the campaigns and ensure that the agreement on sharing seats is followed.
