Munya moves to Supreme Court to contest ouster

20 March 2014, 19:57 William Korir

Nairobi - Meru governor Peter Munya has moved to the Supreme Court to challenge his ouster from the position. 

Munya lost his seat Wednesday after the court of appeal ruled that his election did not meet the required standards and thus was null and void.

Supreme Court Judge Smokin Wanjala ruled Thursday that the case was urgent and directed it be heard by two judges Friday.

If the case does go south for Munya, he will be forced into a by-election of which his rivals are already making headway.

This is after a section of Mps threw their weight behind Munya's rival for the election.

The MPs drew their weight behind Munya's rival, Kilemi Mwiria whom they consider as being capable of uniting diverse Meru sub-tribes.

Tigania East MP, Mpuri Aburi held that Munya's bid to appeal the court's ruling that nullified his win will be unfruitful noting that his March 4 election was marred with election malpractices.

“I have been Munya’s chief opponent in elections since 2002. In 2013 when he realised that he will meet me again, he went for governorship to practice his dirty tricks. His time is up. Jubilee scored by hand and their victory was upheld by Supreme Court, his appeal will therefore fail,” said Mpuri.

Other Meru legislators at the press conference included the Igembe North MP, Joseph M’ Eruaki and the Chuka Igambang’ombe MP, Njuki Muthomi.
