Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua as re-affirmed that despite joining hands with Deputy President William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance party under the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, he is rooting for his party to take up his post after the August polls.

According to Mutua, Maendeleo Chap Chap gubernatorial candidate and who is the incumbent deputy governor Francis Maliti is the best person to take after him and make the county better.

While speaking on Thursday with Mutongoi TV, the Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader said that according to different opinion polls conducted within the past couple of weeks, Maliti has been head on with Wiper candidate Wavinya Ndeti.

"I want a person who knows how county governments are run, and that is Engineer Maliti. I have been with him for the 10 years I was in office, he knows all senior offices, challenges, strengths and how to lead a county. With the polls that we have done, it's 50-50 between Maliti and Wavinya."

He went on to claim that the Chama Cha Uzalendo's candidate Nzioka Waita is below 7 per cent on claims that is he only popular in Kathiani and Machakos Town.
