Will He Be The First One? Amos Kimunya Promise That Has Come Back to Haunt Him

If indeed the Jubilee party fails to secure the Rurii ward position in the May 18 mini poll, Amos Kimunya, the majority leader of the National Assembly, has offered to quit.

Kimunya made the comments in a video taken on May 9, 2021, at a function in ACK Passenga Parish, Nyandarua County.

"If our candidate does not win the seat, I would not like to be the majority leader in the Jubilee government," Kimunya said in Kikuyu dialect.

"I would rather resign if we lose," he said, "but I am certain that the Nyandarua people would overwhelmingly vote for our Jubilee candidate on May 18, and we will not only win but win by a landslide."

According to Kimunya, President Uhuru Kenyatta's backyard, opposing parties should look for elective seats in other counties.


"We have an ongoing case with the UDA party," he said, "because they used the PDR party's registration, which had built a partnership with Jubilee."


Following Tuesday's by-elections, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) declared UDA's candidate Francis Muraya the winner of the Rurii Ward mini-poll.


"UDA's Githaiga, Francis Muraya has been declared duly elected Member of County Assembly for Rurii CAW in Nyandarua County," according to the IEBC.
