Party of National Unity (PNU) leader and Meru county Governor Peter Munya has condemned the vandalism of his party's billboards in Maua and Meru towns on Friday night. While addressing his supporters at the Maili Tatu grounds in Igembe Central, Munya called on the police to carry out investigations failure to which they (PNU) will take action. “We will take action if the police do not, we will not allow ourselves to be intimidated by the use of state machinery,” said Mr Munya.
The governor rubbished remarks made by Tigania East MP Mpuru Aburi at the Jubilee Party launch that the county government has misappropriated billions of shillings meant to fund mega dams by the national government saying that PNU supporters will teach Aburi a lesson in the elections. “PNU supporters will teach him a lesson in the coming elections, how can a leader speak lies in front of the president?” asked the PNU party leader.
A section of Njuri Ncheke elders drawn from Igembe South have issued a 14-day ultimatum to the people behind the vandalism of the billboards to turn themselves in to any elder or PNU official failure to which one risks being cursed by the elders. Mr Munya urged his supporters to register as members and voters so that the can help him beat the Jubilee Party candidate in the elections and also to give the party a national face in preparation for 2022 whereby Munya has declared that he will vie for presidency.
“I urge to register as party membersto give the party strength nationally, to beat the candidate Jubilee will nominate to stand against me in the coming elections and the 2022 elections whereby I will run for presidency under the PNU ticket,” he said.
