Former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama has finally responded to claims that the United Democratic Alliance party, UDA where he is the Chairman, is undermining its opponents from Maendeleo Chap Chap party in Machakos County.
The allegations surfaced after Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader and who is Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua ditched Raila Odinga's Azimio camp for Kenya Kwanza Alliance led by Deputy President William Ruto.
The leaders who joined Mutua in supporting Ruto's presidential bid have been arguing that the UDA competitors are given more credit compared to them, with some claiming that they are suffering because of the differences between Mutua and Muthama.
Speaking on Sunday with local media house, Mutongoi TV, Muthama affirmed that as the UDA chair, he cannot leave his own children and start taking care of those of the neighbors, saying that the leaders should transverse across the county seeking for votes and allow the electorates to choose their preferred leaders in the August polls.
Muthama further criticized Mutua saying that the second term governor had failed to deliver his promises to the residents, and has never taken an opportunity to interact with them to know what they wanted and what he had failed to deliver.
Mutua has for the past couple of weeks being accompanying Ruto and Kenya Kwanza brigade to different areas to seek for the presidential vote.
