Ex-Mungiki leader Maina Njenga ditches Jubilee to join KANU

Former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga has defected from the Jubilee Party to KANU citing frustrations from the ruling administration.

Njenga will now use his new party as his political party as he gears up to contest the Laikipia senate seat currently held by GG Kariuki. He was received by the independence party’s chairman Gideon Moi and secretary general Nick Salat today in a ceremony at the party’s offices in Nairobi.

“Jubilee even refused to look at my nomination papers but I am glad I have found a party that is willing to accommodate me,” he said.

He however clarified that he supported President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election bid in August as he added that he would throw his hat in the ring for the 2022 presidential race.

“Maina Njenga will be a great asset to the party and we welcome him to the party of the youth and future posterity,” Moi said.

He had sued Jubilee and the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for declining to accept his nomination papers for the Laikipia senatorial seat.
