FIVE MPs from the Meru county have accused the Jubilee government of sidelining the Nyambene region from state appointments.
Led by Igembe Central MP Mithika Linturi, they said Nyambene has been given a row deal by the government at the expense of Imenti region.
He said Igembe has been ignored in matters of security which has resulted in livestock theft.
Tigania East MP Mpuru Aburi, Igembe Central's MP Kubai Kiringo, Tigania West MP David Karithi and Igembe North'S MP Joseph M'Eruaki shared the same sentiments.
They were speaking in Mailitatu town yesterday.
Linturi said the Igembe and Tigania subcommunities will seek their own identity and recognition as Nyambene people.
He said the community has close to 800,000 people as compared to the Imenti subcommunity which has slightly over 500,000 people.
Linturi said Imenti has beneffited from the government despite its smaller population.
"When it comes to appointments, we got only one position whereas they carried more than twenty six slots, we have to demand what is rightfully ours", he said.
