How Kitui Reacted During KKA Kitui Meeting After Alfred Mutua Sent Bold Message to Kalonzo on Polls

A team of Kenya Kwanza Alliance leaders on Tuesday toured Kitui County where they held an economic forum before the alliance launches its manifesto ahead of the August 9 polls.

The leaders led by Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua, ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi drummed their support for the alliance, calling upon the residents to rally behind Deputy President William Ruto's presidential bid.

In his sentiments, Mutua who is also the Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader told the Ukambani kingpin and Wiper party leader that he rejoined the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance alone, and that the Kamba community was done rallying behind Raila Odinga's presidential bid.

"I want to tell Kalonzo, we truly respect you but, this time you rejoined Azimio all alone," said Mutua as the residents clapped in support.

The second term governor went on to assure the Ukambani region that their interests will be safeguarded by the KKA government, further arguing that the Azimio camp was taking Kalonzo and other Azimio leaders for a ride since they do are not certain of the contents of the agreement they signed.

He expressed his confidence that Ruto will be getting at least 50 per cent of the votes in Ukambani come August, saying that the region is now a battle ground.
