Former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga’s record 4-hour party hopping
Njenga has declared his intention to vie for Laikipia Senator with the Jubilee Party being his preferred party of choice.
Njenga has now said he has had a “change in mind” after the Political Parties Tribunal ordered the Jubilee Party to accept his nominations papers and allow him to participate in the party’s primaries.
However, on Wednesday, Jubilee rejected his nomination papers citing integrity issues.
He later moved to court after Jubilee rejected his nomination papers for his Laikipia governor bid last Friday.
In a swift counter-reaction, Njenga decamped to Kanu only a few hours later and was warmly welcomed by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, Secretary General Nick Salat among other high ranking senior party officials.
Njenga thanked Moi for warmly welcoming him to the party.
Castigated Jubilee Party
He castigated Jubilee for treating him unfairly saying that a senior official at the party’s headquarters did not even look at his papers saying that he was waiting for further instructions before making a decision.
However the former Mungiki leader said that he support the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta in August.
In an apparent swipe at Moi’s bitter rival in Rift Valley, Njenga said that after President Kenyatta’s tenure, Kanu will take over and make its way to State House come 2022.
Deputy President William Ruto has already said that he plans to vie for the presidency in 2022.
In yet another strange twist, following the Tribunal ruling in his favour, Njenga rushed back to Jubilee and disputed “claims” that he had defected to Kanu.
"I just went to Kanu headquarters to visit officials since they are working with Jubilee to ensure President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election," Njenga told the media.
