Governor Mutua ditches Azimio for Kenya Kwanza

Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua of Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) party has ditched the Azimio La Umoja coalition and joined the Kenya Kwanza coalition.

During a press briefing at a Nairobi hotel on Monday, Dr. Mutua said his Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) party had sealed the deal on Sunday night with the Kenya Kwanza coalition and confirmed of already had the copies of the agreement unlike in the Azimio coalition.

“I already have a copy unlike that for Azimio. I will transverse Kenya campaigning for William Ruto as I believe he is the best president to take Kenya forward,” he said.

“As a party, we have been excluded from Azimio line-ups, campaign programs, and funding. We have also not been shown, or even allowed to discuss what our roles would be after the elections,” said Mutua.

“This lack of clarity plus the sidelining has sent a very clear message to us: akufukuzaye hakwambii toka.”

The Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu on Monday morning while on Citizen TV confirmed that MCC, alongside Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi’s Pamoja African Alliance party, had written to her office expressing an intention to leave the Azimio Coalition.

“I have received only two (requests of parties wanting to leave the Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya coalition party); the Maendeleo Chap Chap and the Pamoja African Alliance,” Ms. Nderitu told Citizen TV on the Day Break show.

Mutua had moved to court seeking to be issued with a copy of the Azimio coalition agreement deposited with the office of the registrar of political parties (ORPP) after the ORPP and Azimio coalition party refused to give the party the coalition agreement.
