Munya's defection to Nasa not a surprise, Kiraitu says

Munya's defection to Nasa not a surprise, Kiraitu says”

The former Meru Governor Peter Munya who formally joined NASA as the sixth Principals was welcomed by NASA Co Principal and Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi.

Munya who was vying on a PNU ticket lost to Jubilee Canidate Kiraitu Murungi maintains he will challenge Kiraitu's win in the High Court insisting that exercise was marred with irregularities.

Meanwhile, PNU officials have disowned Munya saying he is no longer an official of the party. Munya and other officials were gazetted in April 2017 on the strength of court orders directing the Registrar of Political Parties to gazette them.

The leaders further emphasized that PNU followers will not blindly support NASA because Munya has chose to ditch Jubilee but will rather stick to their original decision.

According to the Meru governor, it was an open secret that Mr Munya was in Nasa "and was principal number six after Mr Isaac Ruto" but could not go public with it during the campaigns because it was risky for him given that Meru is a Jubilee zone.

"We are not at all surprised by Munya's announcement that he is going to Nasa".

At the same time, Mr Murungi challenged Mr Munya to make good his threat to challenge his election in court, saying he was not anxious about it.

Kiragu said PNU followers in Embu are rallying behind President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election in the fresh presidential poll ordered by the Supreme Court after invalidating his victory on September 1.

"The people of Meru freely expressed their will - rejecting him as their governor".

"This is a great day".
