Deputy Governor to quit office
04 July 2016, 20:13
Nairobi - Machakos Deputy Governor Bernard Kiala says he will quit office in order to concentrate his efforts to competing against his boss Alfred Mutua.
Kiala, who has been at loggerheads with Mutua for the last one year is ready to quit and take on the CORD ticket for the 2017 elections and compete against Mutua.
Mutua is set to quit the CORD Coalition and run on his Maendeleo Chap Chap movement which supports the Jubilee Coalition.
And thus a space for Kiala.
“I will resign from office in order to concentrate on running for Governor come 2017,” he told News24 on phone.
He says that he has learnt both good and bad from current Governor Mutua and is ready to take him on for the polls.
“I think that the time is right for me to branch out and seek to serve the people of Machakos in the coming years,” he added.
Mutua and Kiala have fallen out on a number of occasions, with the Governor having demoted him on a number of occasions as well as having an impeachment motion against the Deputy Governor falling short.
