By Antynet Ford

Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza has officially joined the United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Mwangaza was received today at the party headquarters, hustler centre in Nairobi by the Party Secretary General Cleophas Malala and the party chairperson Cecily Mbarire.

The governor who was elected on an independent ticket said this is the first step of her reconciling with the Members of the County Assembly whom have been having wrangles with her.

She said the county is bigger and they should work for the benefit of the electorates.

“Meru is bigger than all of us. Meru is bigger than any other leader. So it is my prayer that we can work together with every leader.” She said.

The Meru governor said she will be vying for the gubernatorial seat in 2027 on a UDA Party ticket.

On her part, the chairperson asked the UDA leaders in Meru to work with Kawira

She urged them to consider reconciliation.

“I’m urging all politicians, especially the UDA MPs from Meru, and the UDA MCAs of the Meru County assembly, I want to urge them to open the door for dialogue, reconciliation, and healing for this great county of Meru.” Mbarire said.

Malala implored Meru MPs and MCAs under UDA to collaborate with the governor, in line with the party leader’s vision.

“We want to ask them to embrace the entry of the governor and they should work together as a team. That’s the aspiration of our party leader. Our party leader wants a united Meru. Our party leader wants a solid Meru County government,” said Malala.

“We are stretching an olive branch to the MCAs in Meru County as a party we shall retreat and find a reconciliatory mode in which you shall operate with the governor because now it is time to move on.”

Kawira has survived two impeachments with the Meru MCA’s accusing her of misappropriation of funds, nepotism among others.
