I’m the best bet to man­age your re­sources – Munya

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Meru Gov­er­nor Peter Munya has urged vot­ers not to be de­ceived by his op­po­nents’ pro­pa­ganda but to elect the best man­ager of their re­sources. He said Se­na­tor Ki­raitu Mu­rungi’s in­ter­est in the po­si­tion is self­ish, bi­ased and aimed at bring­ing dis­unity.

Munya said Ki­raitu had a great op­por­tu­nity to spear­head devel­op­ment in the county, and es­pe­cially his back­yard South Imenti, but he used di­vide-an­drule and dis­crim­i­na­tory tac­tics to re­main in power. “The only thing they want is con­trol of the re­sources in Meru. Not that some­body has bet­ter skills. It is about self­ish in­ter­ests,” he said.

“You are the ones to de­cide who ... won’t dis­crim­i­nate? Who will unite res­i­dents? I know I have done this and to­day Meru is united due to my equal dis­tri­bu­tion of re­sources and em­ploy­ment.”

He spoke at Kawam­cungu Catholic Church in South Imenti on Thursday.
