Munya too dumps Raila for President Kenyatta
Former Meru Governor Peter Munya has pulled a shocking move by pledging allegiance to President Uhuru Kenyatta, just a week after announcing his support for Nasa.
According to a press statement by the Party of National Unity (PNU), which is currently under the leadership of Mr Munya, the party has resolved to support the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“After thorough consultation with party member’s elders and supporters across the country, it has been agreed that in the best interest of the country we support the re-election of His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta in the forthcoming presidential election scheduled for the 17th of October 2017,” the press statement, signed by Mr Munya, read in part.
“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,” the statement further read.
Other party officials who signed the statement are John Anunda Okemwa (Secretary General) and Peter Kaberia Nkubitu (national Treasuer).

Munya made a public announcement on his defection to the Nasa Coalition last week on Monday, accusing the Jubilee Party of having a hand in his loss of the Meru Gubernatorial seat to Kiraitu Murungi.
Just recently, Chama Cha Mashinani leader Isaac Ruto decamped from Nasa and backed Jubilee.
