Bullish Munya the best man to take on Jubilee government

21 May 2015, 14:56 William Korir

Nairobi - Meru Governor Peter Munya is the best man to take the Council of Governors forward, experts state.

Munya was elected Thursday by his peers in election of new leaders to take charge of the Governors caucus, held at the Hotel Intercontinental Nairobi.

Munya replaces Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto, who finished his two year term.

Experts state that Munya is the right person for the job, as the role needs a forthright person to take care of business of fighting for devolution reforms.

Ruto, according to experts, set the standard for the type of person needed to take that job.

" The profile was obvious. The job needs a bullish person. One who is ready for a fight and one ready to take on the government and Munya fits that criteria," political analyst Michael Njenga said.

" Munya has been fighting the referendum war to opposition from My Kenya leaders. Now he has the protection of the leadership of the Council".

" I think he will do a good job for them," he adds.

Munya himself says that he believes he is the right person for the job, as he is ready to do as much as possible to push forward the devolution agenda.

" I believe it is a job suited for me and I thank you for giving me the opportunity," he said.

Salim Mvurya, the former Vice Chairman has retained his position, while Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has been named the Chief Whip.

Munya said that he would continue the fight started by Ruto t give Counties more funding, even if it means pushing forward the Pesa Mashinani referendum.

" We need more money to develop our Counties and I will continue to fight for that through the available avenues, including the Pesa Mashinani referendum," he said after being elected.
