Legislators from Meru region dismissed ousted governor Peter Munya’s warnings to Deputy President William Ruto not to interfere with Meru politics saying karma has already sorted him out politically for good.
Munya had claimed Ruto’s visit to the region, a weekend after his election was nullified, was malicious to say the least.
“We are wondering why the Appellate court ruling date was changed and the DP’s visit to Meru was postponed to coincide with the weekend that my election was nullified. I read malice in the whole scenario and I am telling them that we are not at the mercy of anybody at the national government,” he told a gathering at the Kenya Methodist University on Sunday in Meru County.
Reacting to Munya’s accusations, Igembe South MP Mithika Linturi said the legislators from the region do not need the DP to sort out Munya.
“Munya has already been chewed (politically) and I tell you, in 60 days, you will see a new leader,” he said.
Then Tigania East MP added the ‘mother’ rider.
“When we wanted to hold an open nomination, he hid under his seat. He should know Meru County does not belong to his mother.”
Other MPs at the press conference included Igembe North MP Joseph M’Eruaki, Mr Kathuri Murungi (Imenti South), Mr Kanini Kega, Muthomi Njuki (Chuka Igamba Ng’ombe) and Kimani Ichungwa.
