NASA's Raila Odinga and PNU chairman Peter Munya.

Former Meru governor Peter Munya has dumped NASA’s Raila Odinga for incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta ahead of the October presidential election.

Munya on Tuesday amazed many after attending a meeting with President Kenyatta barely a week after pledging support for the opposition.

Through an official letter with PNU letterhead, Munya revealed that he had made a decision to back Mr Kenyatta’s re-election after consultations with elders and PNU stakeholders.

“After thorough consultations with party members, elders and supporters across the country, it has been agreed that in the very best interest of the country, we support the reelection of his Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta in the forthcoming presidential election,” the letter read in part.
