Trouble for Munya after dumping Raila for Uhuru

Raila Odinga disclosed that the turn-around by Munya was due to blackmail.

The Party of National Unity national chairman John Kamama has issued a warning to the former Meru Governor that he must face a disciplinary panel for what he termed as ‘gross misconduct.’

“He moved to Nasa and the party will decide on the way forward because he declared support for our political opponents, which is illegal,” Mr Kamama told the press.

He added: "It is also important to note that former President Mwai Kibaki is the bona fide party chief and not him.”

Mr Munya has however vowed to fight to defend his party membership at the PNU.

U-Turn

On Monday, Munya ditched the NASA coalition and pledged to rally his supporters to support Kenyatta ahead of the repeat presidential elections scheduled for October 17.

Munya who is also the Party of National Unity (PNU) leader said that following consultations, the decision to support President Kenyatta was in the best interest of the country.

“After thorough consultations with our party members, elders and supporters across the country, it has been agreed that in the very best interest of the country we support President Kenyatta in the forthcoming presidential election,” read the statement from the PNU party, after a meeting at State House.

On his part, however, Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga who spoke last night during an interview on a live TV show, disclosed that Munya was called (to State House) and blackmailed into going back to support Kenyatta and that he was under undue pressure.
