Munya files petition challenging Kiraitu win in Meru Governor poll

- in Elections 2017, News, Politics

Former Meru Governor Peter Munya has filed a petition challenging the declaration of Kiraitu Murungi as the winner of the August 8 election.

“The election was not free and fair. We witnessed a lot of irregularities. That is why we have filed the case,” Munya told his supporters on Friday.

In his address to the supporters outside the Meru High Court after a meeting with his lawyers, the ex-county boss exuded the confidence he will win the case.

He said it was impossible for him to get zero votes at Igembe Stadium polling station which is his stronghold.

The former county boss said the fight against rigging will not stop if Kenyans relent in the push for justice.

“It is questionable that most half of the forms used by IEBC in the Meru governor’s race in last months polls are missing.”

Munya defended his move to NASA saying he has not abandoned PNU but has moved with the party to form a coalition with the opposition.

However, a group has claimed that the former county boss has no say in what the party does as he is not a member.

But the governor, accompanied by his running mate in the recent polls Peter Kaberia and Senator loser Mugambi Imanyara, said he has borne a lot by backing Jubilee.

“We will be with other democratic Kenyans. After stealing our votes, how do you (Jubilee) expect us to back you?”
