Uhuru set for Munya Jubilee talks
10 February 2016, 17:57
Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta is seeking a deal with Meru Governor Peter Munya over his stay in the Jubilee Party.
Munya has already stated publicly that he will not join the newly formed Jubilee Party which is being fronted by the President and DP William Ruto.
To make his threat real, Munya walked out on a fundraiser hosted by Ruto over the weekend to show his disapproval.
And with his stay in Sagana for two days attending the national government/devolution conference, Uhuru is said to have set up a moment or two to speak to the Meru Governor.
" The President will have a word. The Meru Governor is an important part of the Jubilee family and his presence is needed," a source close to the President told News24.
Munya though, who is also the chairman of the Council of Governors has however denied the presence of a meeting or the plans for one.
" There is nothing of the sort," he said when asked by News24.
Munya believes that the new party is there to only help DP Ruto ascend to the Presidency in 2022.
He is on record as stating that he is keen on the presidency sometime in future.
