Meru County Governor Kiraitu Murungi has on Tuesday, March 8, 2022 joined the Raila-led Azimio La Umoja movement.

The county head announced that his Devolution Empowerment Party ('Mbus') is now part and parcel of the political formation, that enjoys the backing of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

While avowing his support to Raila's fifth stab at the presidency, Kiraitu exuded confidence in the ODM leader's candidature stating that he will surely ascend to power come August 9th.

"We have done 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," he said.

Murungi made the announcement during a meeting with his party members. Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga also graced the Devolution Empowerment Party meeting.
