After several days of mourning over the original coalition agreement signed by the Resolution, Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua led his troops on Monday, announcing “we have joined Kenya First”.
Mutua said “the tensions within the coalition of the Unity One One in Kenya are too great and we have to leave.”
“We have joined Kenya Kwanza, a coalition led by Vice President William Ruto and that is where we feel safe,” he told a news conference.
Mutua says he took the decision after the Declaration failed to announce a coalition agreement signed by the affiliates, despite his threat to file a lawsuit.
Since last week, Mutua has been complaining about what he calls the ‘mistrust’ of the coalition of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Declaration with his presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
“As you can see, tumefukuzwa Azimio, (we have been kicked out of Azimio),” he said, “you cannot sign a contract and no one gives it to you,” he said.
