I cannot share a podium with Dr. Alfred Mutua-Johnson Muthama.

All is not rossy in UDA-Kenya Kwanza Alliance after Maendeleo Chap Chap joined the bandwagon. The jitters were felt on Tuesday when the chairman for UDA skipped a campaign in Tala, Machakos. Many questions were asked on why the UDA gubernatorial candidate for Machakos County gave the meeting a cold shoulder.

The rally, which was attended by DP Ruto, Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi, Ford Kenya party leader Moses Masika Wetangula among other UDA Party heavy weights, was a success. But there was a notable absentee in the podium. Johson Muthama was missing in action. Many a people thought the campaign was to drum up support for his bid to take-over from Dr. Mutua. His absence brought up so many questions.

In an interview with Nation, Muthama asked Mutua to call for a meeting in Machakos County to ask for forgiveness for squandering money given to him on behalf of the people of Machakos County. Muthama alleges that the Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader has a case to answer and that Muthama will never share a podium with him unless he comes clean on his procurement deals while governor for Machakos. “I did not attend and I have my reasons. It is on record that I have fought with Mutua for nine years and nine months,” Johnson Muthama said.

He further said: “My conscience and principles cannot be compromised at any given time as I am a person with a firm stand. If I will have to appear in public with Mutua, first I will sit down with him and tell him first show Machakos people the showers you went around telling people that you provided in every house, show me the chicks you said you had supplied to Machakos as well as the 70 ambulances that you brought in one day and removed them on the same day and made Kenyans believe that you took 70 ambulances to Machakos,”.

“Show now without fear of contradiction the tractors that you said you bought to be ploughing farms in Machakos. With all those things around Mutua, it was wrong for me to go and say now I’ll start working with this guy,” the Machakos County gubernatorial aspirant lamented.

Mr. Muthama cleared the air on his stand about Maendeleo Chap Chap joining UDA-Kenya Kwanza Alliance as long as Dr. Mutua is held accountable to the people of Machakos County.“That is what makes me different from other politicians in this country but this does not mean I’m shying away from UDA and Kenya Kwanza. I’m the chairman of UDA but I have to practise my principles and my beliefs,”

This turn of events is bound to cause a lot of friction in UDA. A lot still has to be done.
