President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked former Meru Governor Peter Munya to withdraw the petition he filed challenging the election of Kiraitu Murungi as Meru Governor.

Speaking during a campaign tour of Meru region, President Kenyatta asked Munya and Governor Kiraitu to settle their differences like “grown men”.

Munya, however, steered clear of the matter and did not announce whether he would drop the petition he filed on September 8 at the Meru High Court.

Last week on Wednesday, the two leaders from Meru County met Uhuru at State House, Nairobi, where they agreed to resolve their differences and work as a team to ensure President Kenyatta wins the repeat election.

After the meeting, State House issued a statement indicating Munya and Kiraitu had vowed to go back to Meru with a message of unity and conduct joint presidential campaigns.

They also pledged to preach the message of unity to their supporters and residents of Meru County.

Munya, who vied on a PNU Party ticket, garnered 232,569 votes against Kiraitu who got 281,737.
