MERU GOVERNOR Peter Munya storms out of DP Ruto event in Nkubu, tells the DP to his face that he will not join Jubilee Party. (Source – Daily Nation)
Someone should save Munya from himself. He is on a self destruction mode. And on a high gear. This is how you get multiplied by several zeros, politically. And your value reduces to nothing.
Munya knows too well he stands zero chances of defending his seat on a jubilee Party ticket now that popular Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi, has declared his intention of thoroughly kicking his ass hard for the Meru gubernatorial seat. Kiraitu happens to be Jubilee Party Chairman.
But that’s beside the main point-Whichever party Munya vies on, he will lose unopposed to Kiraitu by 9:00 Am, just three hours into voting. Individuals familiar to Meru politics will tell you Munya is no match to Kiraitu.
If Munya swallows his ego and remains in Jubilee, even after losing the elections he might land a Parastatal chairmanship, that is If Jubilee wins in 2017. A nondescript position like Posta master general for instance.
But if he doesn’t, he might as well join the bandwagon of high flying political leaders who disappeared into oblivion simply because they failed to read the political mood on the ground.
