Nyan­darua woman rep­re­sen­ta­tive Wan­jiku Muhia has said she will sup­port for­mer Kip­ipiri MP Amos Kimunya for any elec­tive seat in the county. She said Kimunya is a good leader whose de­vel­op­ment record as MP stands un­chal­lenged.

“Kimunya was my MP. His de­vel­op­ment record sur­passes that of those who were there be­fore him,” Muhia said.

She was speak­ing dur­ing a tour of Tu­maini, Kan­juiri and Kaim­baga in Ol Kalou con­stituency. Muhia do­nated six tents and 14 wheel­chairs bought through the Na­tional Gov­ern­ment Af­fir­ma­tive Ac­tion Fund.

She said the peo­ple of Nyan­darua want Kimunya back in lead­er­ship. “We are ready to elect him to any post in Nyan­darua, ex­cept woman rep­re­sen­ta­tive,” she said.

Muhia said she is not afraid that her stand could be op­posed by other elected lead­ers. She said lead­ers echo what their peo­ple say, “and the peo­ple of Nyan­darua are say­ing they want Kimunya. Who am I to say oth­er­wise?”

Muhia said Nyan­darua does not have lead­ers to ne­go­ti­ate for its in­ter­ests at the na­tional level be­cause the vot­ers drop the ex­pe­ri­enced politi­cians in favour of fresh ones. She said once the new­com­ers get into Par­lia­ment, they are over­shad­owed by “the ex­pe­ri­enced horses” from other re­gions.
