Odinga speaking during an interview on KTN, disclosed that Munya was called (to State House) and blackmailed into going back to support Kenyatta and that he was under undue pressure.

The former Prime Minister said that Munya's latest move would not dent his candidature in the Meru region as he received a lot of votes in the area while the former governor was supporting Kenyatta in the August 8 elections.

He termed Munya and former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto who last week also rejoined Kenyatta's camp as "casualties of the struggle".
