Peter Munya has come out clear that he can not work with Deputy President William Samoei Ruto. He is not done with politics after Uhuru retires but cannot work with someone who accused him of trying to kill him. I'm June 2019, Ruto claimed that Cabinet secretaries Peter Munya, Joe Mucheru, Sicily Kariuki, and James Macharia met at La Madam hotel to plan his assassination.
The Director of Criminal Investigation was ordered by the president to carry out the investigation. Ruto was the given security. MPs asked the president to dissolve his cabinet. The said cabinet secretaries disputed the allegations and said their meeting was development-oriented and did not involve politicians. Moses Kuria then went on radio to say he is the one who initiated the la madam meetings to bring development to Mount Kenya Region. He said there were others held in Nyeri and Ruto was seeking sympathy.
This is the reason Trade and industrialization CS has said if he is called to be Raila's running mate he will accept but can't work with Ruto. There is a hunt for votes in the Mount Kenya Region by 2022 presidential candidates. Many have the idea that Ruto will choose a running mate from the region. Munya was very categorical that he cannot support him. There is a possibility that the jubilee ODM merger may present Raila and Munya to race against Ruto. Utterances by Munya shows the division in the cabinet.
