Mutua exits Raila’s Azimio, joins Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza

Written by on 9 May 2022

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has exited Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition party and joined William Ruto-led Kenya Kwanza.

Mutua said his party Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) signed an agreement with the alliance on Sunday night.

“Unlike in Azimio, we have a copy of what we signed last night,” Mutua said.

Mutua ready to campaign for Ruto

The governor said he is ready to campaign for United Democratic Alliance (UDA) and Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate William Ruto across the country.

“There is a wind of change in Kenya. We want to campaign for a leader who will be in charge,” he said.

Mutua said Azimio has become a club of a few without any transparency.

“We have been peeping through the window as others take centre stage in decision making. We are not even sure that the document we signed is the same as the one deposited with the registrar of political parties,” he added.

Mutua added that his party has written five letters to Azimio and ORPP and they did not reply.

“Today marks exactly one month since we signed the agreement and we have been excluded from Azimio line-ups, campaign, and funds, and our role after election has not been explained.

Mutua further said five more parties are set to exit Azimio in the coming days.
