Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi has announced that his Devolution Empowerment Party has joined Azimio la Umoja.
Kiraitu said his decision to back Raila’s fifth stab at the presidency in this year’s election was based on research, talking to opponents, and listening to confidential reports.
During the Tuesday meeting in Meru, the first term Meru Governor exuded confidence that Raila Odinga will clinch the 2022 Presidential race come August.
“We have done the research, talked to opponents and listened to confidential reports. I can confidently tell you that the fifth president of the Republic of Kenya is no other than Raila Odinga. Devolution empowerment party will work with Azimio Movement for a better Kenya,” said Kiraitu Murungi.
This comes days after Meru Senator Mithika Linturi, allied to Deputy President William Ruto declared interest to unseat Kiraitu to become the third County boss.
