Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua on Wednesday responded to remarks made by former Senator of his county Johnstone Muthama which indicated that the Kamba nation was poised to strike a political deal with Deputy President William Ruto.
In a statement which he shared on his social media accounts, the Governor slammed Muthama for his sentiments saying that the Kamba nation is tired of being auctioned for the sake of selfish interests.
According to the Governor, the developments have not come as a surprise since, he says, the former Senator has been holding several secret meetings that have led to the Wednesday’s pronouncements.
“However, we want to categorically tell the @ that our people are tired of being auctioned to the highest bidder and being used as a pawn for the sake of an individual and to enrich a few.
“For how long will Kenyans follow pretenders and self-seekers?” posed Governor Mutua.
The Machakos Governor also noted that the pronouncements by the Former Senator were the true position of Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
Mutua accused Kalonzo of teaming up with DP Ruto in their plot to frustrate President Uhuru Kenyatta in his bid to unite and develop Kenya under the Big Four Agenda.
However, the Governor maintained that his party was solidly behind the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report in its quest to amend the constitution and bring in changes that will unify the country.
“As @, we fully support the Constitutional changes through the BBI initiative and urge Kenyans to shun corrupt, self-seeking alliances meant to destabilize Kenya,” said Mutua.
On Wednesday, media reports indicated that Muthama had vowed to rally senior political leaders from the Kamba nation in striking a deal with DP Ruto ahead of the 2022 presidential election.
He reportedly said that time to work with ODM leader Raila Odinga had lapsed and that the region was keen on negotiating with DP Ruto and NASA co-principals, Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) and Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya).
In a turn of events, a report by a local news blog indicated that the Former Senator had downplayed the reports and termed the allegations as a perspective of the writer.
He denied having said that he had endorsed Ruto for the presidency.
