Governor Kiraitu Murungi has called on the people of Meru to embrace and own the revived ‘Mbus’ Party because it will give the County and the region bargaining power going into 2022 general elections.
Governor Kiraitu noted that although other political outfits may appear popular in the region, they are owned by other people from other regions of the country, and would not be useful to Meru people when it comes to negotiating for development and fair share of the national cake in the next regime.
“I wish to ask our people not to rush into parties that are owned by people from other regions but let them join and popularize our ‘Mbus’ Party. All those who are coming here to tell us to support their bid, insisting we get on board their parties are my political peers because we worked with them in President Kibaki’s government,” he added.
He said the people of Meru should have their own party before they declare a preferred candidate to support in the presidential ticket and negotiate from a point of strength.
The Governor was speaking at Mwirine Primary School in Ntima East, North Imenti when he flagged off 100 poultry vaccinators who have been trained and dispatched to help poultry farmers across the County, with the control of the Newcastle disease.
Reiterating the Governor’s position, Deputy Governor Titus Ntuchiu rubbished those opposing the revival of the Party and called on them to concentrate on building their own, since the ‘Mbus’ party isn’t their business.
DG Ntuchiu noted that Governor Kiraitu has the requisite experienced to lead Meru and the region in the direction where the interests of the people will best be addressed.
