Kenyans woke up to reports that Alfred Mutua’s Maendeleo Chap Chap and Amason Kingi’s PAA have shifted to Kenya Kwanza.
The reports were fueled by Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula who said that the two parties will boost Kenya Kwanza and ensure that the coalition emerges victorious after the August 9 general elections.
“Congratulations Maendeleo Chap Chap and PAA political parties for joining the Kenya Kwanza Alliance Coalition. Your entry brings in additional energy and guarantees, even more, KKA’s assured victory in the August 9th General elections. Hongera, the Bungoma senator said.
The information pleased Kenya Kwanza supporters who welcomed the two parties with two arms while others doubted if that was true.
“Welcome home @DrAlfredMutua,Kenya Kwanza is the way,welcome to a place you won’t be asked who’s your father ,don’t follow advice from RT Hon Mrs@ItsMutai,let him remain with kuzimia conmen,” a twitter user said.
Others however suggested that the treatment that Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is being subjected to might be one of the reasons that parties are deciding to leave the Raila Odinga led coalition.
Through a tweet, Alfred Mutua however said that his party will clear the air about the reports on Monday at 9.30am.
“To clear the air and set the record straight, Maendeleo Chap Chap Party will this morning hold a press conference at 9:30 am in Nairobi at the Brazilian Rodizio, also known as Edu’s Bar. Members of the media are invited. Edu’s Bar off mbaazi ave, Nairobi,” Mutua said.
On Friday, the Machakos governor revealed that Azimio coalition together with the Office of the registrar of political parties had denied his party access to the final copy of the agreement that parties under Azimio signed and that MCC would take the matter to court.
“The registrar of political parties (ORPP) and Azimio coalition party have refused to give us a copy of the Azimio coalition agreement deposited with the ORPP we signed to form the coalition. @MCC_Party has in today’s Governing Council meeting decided to go to court & demand to get the document so as to see what changes have been made, if any,” Mutua said in a tweet.
