Mutua still a Wiper member.... For now

19 August 2014, 07:56 William Korir

Nairobi - Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua feels under pressure from what he describes as negative forces and says he might reconsider his political standing if necessary.

The outspoken Mutua has made several stances that have gone against his party in recent months, including snubbing the Saba Saba activities and being against the CORD referendum.

But speaking Monday, the Governor insists that he is a part of the Wiper Democratic Party, respects leader Kalonzo Musyoka but also says he will not hesitate to jump ship if he feels that he is not in the right place.

" I am happy where I am and I will say again. I am a Wiper Party Member, he said.

" I have stood with the party and will continue to do so, but only if I feel that there is the right agenda.

" There have been negative forces trying to push me on the wall. They have been trying to attack me and if they continue I will move on.

" I respect the party leader highly (Kalonzo) and I want us to work together but the environment must be good, he added.

Mutua also insisted that his decisions at County Level are geared towards development and not underhand agendas.

" Mine is to seek development. Mine is to look ahead and take the people of Machakos forward and if I feel that this is not happening I will not hesitate to take action, he said in reference to the woes of deputy Governor Bernard Kiala.

Kiala just recently survived impeachment at Senate level and Mutua followed it up by sacking him from his position at the Machakos County Government cabinet, saying that he has underperformed.

" I am simply relieving him of the burden that has been on his shoulders, he said of his decision.
