This man Munya: Profile of Governors’ Council Boss
After leaving his job as a lecturer at Moi University in 2002, Munya began a law firm before entering into politics the same year where he successfully contested for Tigania East parliamentary seat.
While in Parliament, the now Council of Governors chair founded and chaired the Kenya Young Parliamentarians Association as he sort to champion for issues affecting Kenyan youth.
He was also member of the Health Club Management Committee and the Parliamentary Investment Committee (PIC) before his appointment to the Government in 2006 as the Assistant Minister in the then Ministry of Internal Security and Provincial Administration.
Munya successfully defended his seat in the 2007 and was appointed Assistant Minister, this time in the Ministry of East Africa Community.
With the 2013 elections running under the new Constitution, Munya ran for the Meru governor position and won.
Today’s win as the second chair of the Council of Governors puts governor Munya on a lever, with the governor’s push for allocation of more funds a contravention of the popular view within his Jubilee Alliance Party.
Kenyans will be keen to see if Munya will carry on with the Pesa Mashinani Push initiated during the tenure of his predecessor Isaac Ruto or will conform to the party’s stand and change course.
