Central Kenya Governor ready to quit Jubilee
17 March 2016, 19:57
Nairobi - The season of political moves is here and leaders are opening up to changing parties including a senior politician in Central Kenya.
Meru Governor Peter Munya says that he can see his future away from the Jubilee Coalition.
He says that unless changes are made to the outlook of the ruling Coalition, then he will dump it for a different vessel.
" There are things I am not happy with and I will decide whether to leave or stay," he stated.
He added that the move to unite the current Jubilee partners was a ploy to favour only a few.
" We know who the beneficiaries of the new party are," he added.
Munya, who risks isolation if the rest of the Meru region moves on to the Jubilee party says he is not afraid to face voters on a different platform.
" The people know and see what I have done. That is all that matters," he added.
Munya, to make his point about the new party, walked out of a meeting with DP Ruto late last year in protest after being put on the spot by other local leaders to pledge allegiance to the party.
If he does indeed move on, he will be the second Governor to shift allegiance from the Jubilee Coalition after Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto.
