Here is the full video of how things went down in Meru, area governor told off DP Ruto on the newly formed two-tribe Jubilee Party.
Meru Governor Peter Munya yesterday stormed out of a meeting presided over by Deputy President William Ruto. In a rare show of defiance, Mr Munya told Ruto and Meru Senator Kiraitu to their faces that he would not join the Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP).
The governor was infuriated after local leaders urged him to join the party. The governor declared that he had made up his mind to defend his seat on another party following the decision to dissolve the Kiraitu-led Alliance Party of Kenya.
“In 2017 I will ask for votes on another party, I have a right to choose which party I will join. I cannot be intimidated or told the route to follow,” Munya said amid cheers from a section of the crowd.
