Earlier today the body tasked with conducting elections in Kenya held an event with aspirants at the Bomas of Kenya. As this happened, Kenya Kwanza team held their economic forum at Kiambu county where they had an interactive session with residents about their wants.
On the other part, news from IEBC emerged that their new member Alfred Mutua was going to vie for a political seat this August. Mutua whose name was with the electoral body was to vie for the Mwala parliamentary seat through his Maendeleo Chap Chap party.
After the news broke out, the Machakos governor was quick to refute the claims. He sent a message that he will not be running for any elective position in August and that his focus is on campaigning for Kenya Kwanza alliance to clinch the presidential seat. He added that they would want Kenyans to get a new system where dreams can come true.
This is a relief for many Kenyans since Mutua is seen as a great addition to Kenya Kwanza and will at least sway some votes in their favor. Kenya Kwanza will be hoping to have the majority members in both parliaments as from August.
