Maendeleo Chap Chap is not a political party, says Mutua

06 January 2016, 11:24 Dennis Omido

Machakos - Machakos Governor, Alfred Mutua has maintained that he is still a member of Wiper Democratic Party, despite launching Maendeleo Chap Chap Movement.

Speaking in an interview Tuesday, Mutua said he is still in Wiper and will make a decision on whether to stay or leave the party when the right time comes.

“I belong to Wiper and I am a good member of the party. I go to the party’s meetings when I am called and only miss when I am out of the country. At times I send my deputy to represent me because he is my deputy under Wiper. I don’t know why they are fighting to have me expelled from the party,” Mutua said.

Mutua asked those opposing the formation of his newly formed Maendeleo Chap Chap Movement not to be scared but instead join him in transforming the lives of Kenyans.

“I don’t know why people are scared of Maendeleo Chap Chap. This is not a political party; it is a social, political and economic movement, but it could change to a political party if need be.

“Those opposing it are scared of being held accountable for what they have or have not done in the past years in terms of development,” Mutua said.

He vowed to forge ahead with his development agenda for his people despite the wide opposition from his critics.

“I have received a lot of heat and opposition in Machakos ever since I became the Governor because I introduced an ideology that had never been seen in Ukambani before, but that won’t kill my spirit,” the Governor said.
