NASA leader Raila Odinga’s stab at the presidency has received a major boost after former Meru Governor Peter Munya on Monday announced that he will support him during the presidential repeat elections.
Munya joins NASA
The former Meru Governor has announced he will support Raila's bid in the repeat elections.
The Party of National Unity leader on Monday held consultative meetings with Raila and other NASA leaders including Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetangula and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho.
In the run up to the August 8 elections, the NASA leaders endorsed Munya during a tour to the Meru and Tharaka Nithi Counties.
They urged the locals to vote for Munya against his main rival and Jubilee candidate Kiraitu Muriungi who trounced him in the gubernatorial contest.
The leaders praised Munya hailing him as a true believer in devolution.
"Munya is a friend and we have a lot in common as far as devolution is concerned. He stands for what is truthful and just. We welcome him to NASA.
He has been frustrated in his efforts to fight for devolution. In this regard, we will work closely with Munya if we get to head the national government," Odinga told Meru residents.
