Kimunya makes a political come back


Former Finance Minister, Amos Kimunya, has announced his come-back to active politics vowing to recapture the Kipipiri seat which he lost to the incumbent Samwel Gichigi.

The immediate former Kipipiri M.P who took a back seat in the political arena says he is now ready to take up the mantle and help steer meaningful development in the area.

Kimunya says it has taken a lot of consultations and considerations to make up his mind to contest for the Kipipiri Seat since some people have been pushing him to go for the Nyandarua Gubernatorial position.

Kimunya served in various ministerial dockets in the 10 year rule of Mwai Kibaki.

He said he has settled for the National Assembly which has him better placed to represent his people and the interests of Nyandarua.

Addressing the press at Manunga Catholic Hall in Kipipiri constituency on the sidelines of a stakeholders’ meeting, Kimunya said he is now optimistic that the knowledge and experience he has acquired when he was away from the public limelight would help him make an impact in terms of development.

Also expected to vie for the Kipipiri parliamentary seat is the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) Chairman, Macharia Njeru, although he is yet to publicly announce his candidature.
