What you need to know:

  • The battle for Meru is not one for the ethos of democracy and governance; but that of the elites and commoners rising up against each other.
  • In Meru, you are either a Kiraitu Murungi, a Peter Munya, a Mithika Linturi or a Governor Kawira Mwangaza stalwart. There are no in-betweens or ifs.
