Senator Mutula Junior Explain Reasons Why There Will be No Azimio Zoning in Ukambani Region

Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior has stated that the calls by the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance council, to have zoning in different positions ahead of the August 9 polls will not take place in Ukambani Region.

Azimio council resolved to ensure that the alliance bags as many seats as possible, and the only option was to request 'weak' candidates of Azimio affiliate political parties, to step down and support those who are perceived to be most popular.

Mutula who was speaking to the media in Makueni County on Tuesday, argued that the council was using different opinion polls to weigh out on the popular candidates, as well as political parties, and it emerged that in Ukambani, the Wiper party and its candidates were far ahead of their opponents in the alliance, and thus no body will be requested to step down.

"Zoning has not affected Ukambani, and I can say today without blinking that the polls have shown that Wiper is very strong in Ukambani. So there is no reason to zone any person. The statistics have shown that all Wiper candidates are leading,' said Mutula.

His remarks comes a day after a section of Wiper candidates in Machakos County echoed Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka's remarks to vote Six-piece in the August polls, terming the party as the signature party in Makueni, Machakos and Kitui counties.
