Big Boost For Ruto's Bid From Ukambani After Alfred Mutua's SG Ditched Maendeleo ChapChap For UDA

Deputy President William Ruto's 2022 presidential bid has been boosted after Maendeleo Chap Chap Secretary General Stephen Kilonzo ditched the Governor Alfred Mutua's party to UDA.

Speaking with the Star on Phone, Kilonzo revealed that he was yet to inform the Chap Chap party of his defection, claiming that the hustler nation party is more accomodative.

He will going for the Senatorial position in Kitui County in 2022 after losing in 2017 to the incumbent Wiper's Senator Enoch Wambua.

"I consulted widely and negotiated with UDA party top officials. I find the party accommodative. It is now my new home. I am now more at home because I will run on UDA that has a formidable presidential candidate in DP William Ruto," said Kilonzo.

He alleged that the main reason he joined UDA, was to avoid a fate he suffered from in 2017, since he ran on a party that did not have a presidential aspirant, and it was somehow hard to convince Kitui residents since his party leader was not on the presidential ballot.

Other leaders who have show interest in the County's Senator post are Enoch Wambua, Allan Sila a Nairobi-based businessman and entrepreneur Muinde Mutuka.
