Governor Kiraitu Murungi Skips Azimio Event in Meru Today

Meru County governor and the Devolution Empowerment Party leader Kiraitu Murungi has today skipped the Azimio la Umoja running mate nominee Martha Karua tour in the county two days after she was unveiled by the coalition flag bearer Raila Odinga on Monday at the KICC.

Martha Karua who began her Mount Kenya journey yesterday in her home county Kirinyaga has today visited various parts of Meru County, but in some regions she experienced a low turnout.

Karua was in company of former Meru Governor Peter Munya, NO PEU Leader Peter Munya, Kieni MP Kanini Kega and Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni among others.

Speculations have however risen higher over a possible fall out of the Azimio la Umoja coalition members in the county following the supremacy battles between Munya and Kiraitu that began way back after the 2013 general elections.

During an interview with one of the local media stations in the county previously, Governor Kiraitu said that Munya is the one funding and supporting the current Women rep Kawira Mwangaza to unseat him in the governor seat. CS Munya is the one funding Kawira Mwangaza. They have been holding several secret Hotel Meetings in Nanyuki. I am not afraid of them." He said.

The said allegations might however be the main reason the former Imenti South lawmaker failed to show up in the rally.
