Powerful Kamba leader surprises Uhuru at State House
The huge support is set to give Kalonzo sleepless nights, even after Dr Alfred Mutua endorsed Uhuru
In a State House event attended by Deputy President William Ruto, Uhuru flagged off 12 Jubilee Party branded cars, equipment, materials and a fleet of trucks that will be used by aspirants for campaigns in the Ukambani region.
The cars, trucks, equipment and campaign materials were donated by Mr Peter Muthoka, a prominent Ukambani businessman, who is a staunch supporter of the Jubilee Party.

“It is people like you who will make us succeed because we know without proper support it is very difficult to run a campaign,” the President said, thanking Mr Muthoka for the donation.
Uhuru challenged his Ukambani Jubilee Party campaign team to maximise in the votes hunting mission in the perceived Kalonzo Musyoka dominated area.
“We are confident that the Jubilee Party this time round will get most votes in Ukambani because in 2013 you were giving Kenyans a promise but this time, you are talking to Kenyans with a scorecard of your achievements for roads that they have travelled on, electricity that they can see, a Standard Gauge Railway that has been put up in record time and ground-shaking education reforms,” Mr Muthoka said.
He added: “On the other hand, we have an opposition without a promise other than empty dreams, propaganda and criticism of your Government.”
The donation for Uhuru Kenyatta from Ukambani comes barely a week after Machakos governor Alfred Mutua endorsed Uhuru’s reelection in the August polls.
