Uhuru using Mutua to break Kamba vote says Senator

16 September 2015, 18:47 William Korir

Nairobi - Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama says President Uhuru Kenyatta is using Governor Alfred Mutua to break off the Kamba vote ahead of the 2017 General Elections.

Mutua has been at loggerheads with other senior Kamba leaders including Wiper Democratic Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka over leadership in the Ukambani region.

Muthama especially has been a part of the brigade seeking to hound Mutua out of the Wiper party and into political wilderness.

However, her believes that Mutua's recently formed Maendeleo Chap Chap movement is being fronted by the President, thus the bullish nature of Mutua's campaigns in the region.

Speaking in the aftermath of Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko's father Gideon's funeral, Muthama stated that he felt the issues arising from Mutua had something to do with the President.

" I ask the President to stop meddling in Ukambani politics," he said.

" I believe that he has been supporting the Governor (Mutua) to undermine leaders from the Ukambani region, which I urge him to stop," he added.

Mutua did not respond to the allegations.

The former Government spokesman however says that his movement is keen on ensuring that Kamba's improve their fortunes in business and other poverty reducing aspects.
