Machakos Governor and Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader Alfred Mutua has denied claims that he is eyeing the Mwala Parliamentary Seat in the August election.
In a statement on Monday, 23rd May, Mutua stated that he will not be running for any elective post on the 9th August polls.
Mutua who recently joined the Kenya Kwanza Alliance after ditching the Azimio-One Kenya Coalition further said that he will concentrate on campaigning for the DP Ruto-led coalition.
“For avoidance of doubt, I wish to clarify that at this particular time, I am not running for any elective position in the forthcoming elections. I am concentrating on campaigning for the Kenya Kwanza coalition so that Kenya can get a new system where dreams can come true,” Mutua Tweeted on Monday.
Reports on Mutua’s running for a political seat emerged after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) released the names of contestants seeking elective seats in August.
The list indicated that Alfred Mutua had presented his papers to the electoral commission as a contestant for the Mwala parliamentary seat on a Maendeleo Chap Chap party ticket.
