Senator Muthama in fresh bid to oust Alfred Mutua
Muthama is now accusing the governor of mismanaging county affairs for his own personal gains.
The senator has enlisted the support of a section of county members of assembly in his tactical bid to have the governor impeached.
The rivalry between the two can be traced back to a period before 2013 general election and continues to be played out in the open ever since.
And for the umpteenth time, the abrasive senator organized a rally in Machakos to discredit the governor.
Muthama arrived at the venue, accompanied by Mutua’s deputy Benard Kiala, another political leader who has been at loggerheads with Mutua, and a number of members of the county assembly.
The meeting held at Mulu Mutisya grounds on Friday quickly degenerated into bashing of Mutua.
Firing the first salvo, Muthama hit out at his county boss of mismanaging county affairs for his own personal aggrandizement. Sentiments alluded to by MCA’s who have joined Muthama’s bandwagon.
Addressing a charged crowd, Muthama accused Mutua of betraying the party that sponsored him to the governorship.
A cameraman from a local media house was also caught up in the spat after he was accused of enjoying cordial relations with the governor. His camera was damaged even though he escaped unhurt.
Meanwhile, a section of Ukambani leaders are calling for an end to the continued fighting between Machakos Governor, Alfred Mutua, and his deputy, Bernard Kiala.
Led by Mwingi Central MP, Joe Mutambu, the leaders said the region is lagging behind in development due to unnecessary wrangles that add no value to the people of Machakos County.
Mutambu appealed for a truce, claiming the wrangles have become a disgrace to the region which the claim continues to lag behind in national development since leaders are politically divided for their own selfish interest.
On his part Mavoko MP, Patrick Makau, however said that despite leading the calls for national dialogue with the government the wiper Party is divided as its leaders continue to fight.
The leaders further called for tolerance and unity with party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, currently holding a consultative forum with all Ukambani elected leaders at his Yatta home.
