Kenyans react to Peter Munya’s super fast u-turn


Kenyans online have expressed varied reactions following a U-turn move  by the former Meru Governor Peter Munya pledging his support for the re-election of president Uhuru Kenyatta, a week after he joined Nasa Coalition.

In a press briefing aired by all major local televisions, he announced his intentions of ditching the Jubilee party for the Nasa Coalition.

“I want to be on the right side of history. We want to end the culture of stealing elections in Kenya. I can’t join hands with those who stole my election,” Munya said during a press briefing last Monday at Capitol Hill in Nairobi.

Munya was flanked by top Nasa leaders including Raila Odinga, his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula.

But the ex-Meru governor was at State House, Nairobi on Tuesday where he threw his weight behind Mr Kenyatta’s bid on October 17 re-run.

CHANGE OF HEART

“We therefore urge all our members and supporters across the country to campaign and vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta. We also pledge to go out and vigorously campaign for the president,” read part of the statement.

Munya’s change of heart has sparked an online debate with Kenyans online coming up with different theories on why the former governor has suddenly changed camps.
