TNA boost in Meru

25 June 2012, 13:01 Anthony Muriuki

The National Alliance Party (TNA) yesterday received a big boost in Meru County as scores of aspirants defected from other political parties and declared their candidature on the party ticket.

The aspirants seeking parliamentary and county seats, led by Igembe South MP Mithika Linturi expressed confidence that the party will win the majority of electives seats both at the national and County level come the next general elections.

Speaking the legislator said TNA is a national party that its ultimate goal is to unite all Kenyans and achieve recommendable economical status to elevate the living standards of common Mwanachi.

“We assure presidential aspirant Uhuru Kenyatta that Meru is behind him and those thinking Meru region belong to Alliance Party of Kenya are mislead since the TNA party has attracted majority of contestants and supporters so far,” noted Mithika.

The MP further urged the supporters from the region to recruit more members at the grass root level to make the party strong ahead of TNA flag bearer Uhuru Kenyatta campaign tour visit next week.

“Meru is a region that welcomes all parties and all presidential candidates to come and seek votes for themselves but we must follow the right path that can lead us to somewhere and elect a candidate who is visionary and ready to unite Kenyas,”said the MP.

Linturi expressed confidence that TNA will form the next government and urged members to participate in building the party to make it win the next elections.

“Members participation is mandatory and a strong tool for any party to win an election,” he said.

He also called on presidential candidates contesting for the state house seat to embrace and preach peace ahead of the general election.

Mithika said the 2007 and 2008 post election violence should be condemned by all politicians through preaching peace and unity to achieve a peaceful election come 2013.
