“We as a community are tired of occupying position two in the leadership pecking order in previous governments. Mutua is our best bet for the presidency come 2022,” said former Machakos mayor, Timothy Kilonzo.
Speaking at the Machakos People’s Park during a leaders meeting, Mutua said his move to form the Maendeleo Chap Chap party was driven by the desire to offer people driven leadership.
Meanwhile, Wiper party has for the second time been barred by the Political Parties Dispute Tribunal from presenting Wavinya Ndeti’s name to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) as their gubernatorial candidate for Machakos county.
The Tribunal heard that the number of voters who reportedly voted exceeds the Wiper registered members in the county.
The ruling comes a day to the deadline for the political parties to present the names of their candidates.
If approved, Wavinya will face the incumbent Dr Alfred Mutua
