Speaking on Tuesday, Mutua claimed Maendeleo Chap Chap was an independent party and neither supported Jubilee or NASA.

The Machakos governor highlighted that Jubilee had candidates competing against his party in his own backyard.

“Thus it is impossible to support a competing party. I only want to work with leaders with whom we share common ideals… We as a party [MCC] have agreed to support President Uhuru’s bid for a second term, but we are neither in the Jubilee nor NASA coalitions. We are independent,” the Governor affirmed.

Mutua noted that he supported Uhuru’s bid since they shared the same ideologies adding that the President had promised to involve MCC in the next government.

“We will benefit from appointments to senior positions in the national government,” he stated.

Mutua’s controversial announcement comes barely days after he endorsed Uhuru on Saturday.

“During the Maendeleo Chap Chap National Delegates Conference at the Party headquarters in Lavington. Thanked the Party for their endorsement to lead the nation for a second term. Our agenda is to unite Kenyans and bring development to our country,” part of the statement by PSCU read.
