Munya invites Raila to Meru

29 April 2016, 19:13 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga's visit to Meru has been rubber-stamped by Governor Peter Munya.

The CORD leader begins a tour of Meru from Saturday to woo voters in the region as the campaigns for the 2017 General Elections begin in earnest.

The visit by Raila will target miraa farmers whose business has plummeted following a ban on the miraa trade in Europe and Tanzania.

Raila's visit has been agreed on with Meru Governor Munya, who last week during the Council of Governor's Devolution Conference was happy that the CORD leader took his time to make it there after President Uhuru Kenyatta gave it a wide berth.

" There will be plenty to talk about on the visit. There will be talk on miraa trade as well as other pressing issues," Raila's spokesperson Dennis Onyango told News24.

Last week, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced a KES 1 billion fund to cushion farmers from the ban.

Stakeholders however were unhappy with the money, saying it was a short term fix and that miraa farmers need markets not handouts to survive.
