Monday, March 7, 2022 – Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi has urged ODM Leader Raila Odinga to pick Peter Munya as his running mate ahead of the August 9 General Election if he wants the Meru support.
Speaking in Meru, Kiraitu lauded the performance of Munya as the Agriculture Cabinet Secretary under President Uhuru’s administration, saying it has been exemplary.
“We thank our bother Peter Munya who was given the charge to fight locust in this country and he did an exemplary job that is why we are receiving today 37 million from the emergency locust response project under the Ministry of Agriculture,” Kiraitu said.
The Meru governor said that Munya has all it takes to the former prime minister’s running mate under the Azimio la Umoja movement.
“We pray for Peter Munya to get a good position at the national level, we know the deputy president position has not been named, he is a great strong fighter, he is a warrior,” Murungi said.
At the same time, Kiraitu commended Munya for opting out of the Meru gubernatorial race, saying it has made his reelection campaign easier.
“He did not resign when others were resigning, which means he has left the county to me, I was preparing for a bruising campaign but now he has made that easy, we will continue with the campaign but not with the same intensity,” Kiraitu added.
The sentiments by Kiraitu on Raila’s possible running mate come after reports emerged that the Azimio team is worried that there is no strong candidate in Mt Kenya for the position.
