Gov. Mutua: Let Kalonzo be the Ukambani tribal chief, I’ll be on the ballot in 2022

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has spoken about his 2022 ambitions, saying that he intends to be on the ballot in the coming general election. This comes days after Makueni Governor also revealed that he plans to vie for the country’s top seat ‘after listening to Wanjiku’s voice’.

The Maendeleo Chap Chap Party Leader asked Kenyans to shun tribal politics and reiterated that parties should be formed on development agenda and not tribal blocs.

”Maendeleo Chap Chap is a national party and as its leader, I am determined to be a national leader working for all Kenyans irrespective of where they have come from. Let Kalonzo be the Ukambani tribal chief”.

On his Twitter handle, Governor Mutua released a series of short clips in various vernacular languages highlighting issues faced by Kenyans including high unemployment and poverty.

He also took a swipe on Wiper Party leader following the recent cooperation agreement signed by Jubilee and Wiper movement. ”It is sad that leaders are being harnessed based on tribal blocs and not what they have been able to do for Kenyans.”

The governor reiterated that Kenyans have been getting a raw deal from their leadership and that it was time for a radical political shift where the potential of leaders is examined based on the work and ability to change lives and not from the tribe they come from.

”MCC is not interested in joining any coalition that is not based on the economic empowerment of our people”, he emphasized, insisting that poverty does not recognise tribal lines.
