An open advice to Hon. Kiraitu Murungi from Murithi
Posted by African Press International on April 1, 2008
This is in regard to you referring Meru as Mt. Kenya region and that we are not fit for deputy prime minister.
I remain to echo Hon. Gitobu Imanyara’s words that Meru is not Mount Kenya and it has 9 competent legislators who are competent enough for the post.
Therefore, my kind appeal to you is that, next time you are making such sentimental/vital announcement in public, you need to consult other Meru MPs for the interest of the people they represent. And incase it’s too urgent, the mobile phone comes in handy. You can call or text them and get their opinion too.
Hence, bwana Kiraitu we respect and therefore take note of the matter and treat it with caution and for the interest of the community, and incase the need be, we will voice our concerns through our council of elders, The Njuru Nceeke.
Thus, I strongly feel that your words should be treated personal and that it was not the voice of AMERU people.
God bless Kenya.
