Sonko said during President Uhuru Kenyatt’s tour of Tawa town, Makueni county, that so many politicians have ditched their parties for Jubilee, for the sake of unity.
Mr President, so many leaders who ditched Wiper and joined Jubilee so that we speak with one voice. We do not want other parties within Jubilee to confuse people,he said on Wednesday.
So Governor Mutua, if you are branded a Jubilee mole then you have to make a decision and join the party that is uniting Kenyans under the leadership of Uhuru and DP William Ruto.”
Mutua, who was elected on a Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper party ticket, said he will seek re-election under his movement.
He said the outfit will field candidates for all elective positions except that of the President.
MCC is a “paradigm” to accelerate development in the counties, Mutua said after launching it, adding that the movement will help tackle the problems that have kept Kenya underdeveloped for years.
“Maendeleo Chap Chap is a paradigm for speeding people-centred projects,” he said.
Mutua was denied an opportunity to address the people at Tawa during Uhuruâ€™s tour after he was booed at Makindu. The crowd heckled as soon as he was given the microphone.
Ruto tried to take back the microphone but an adamant Mutua issued a hurried speech.
Three days before Uhuruâ€™s tour, Mutua pitched camp at Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana’s backyard to popularize his party.
He accused Wiper of hiring goons to disrupt his rallies after he was heckled at Makindu town when he opened an office for MCC, a claim Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jr, denied.
Uhuru and Ruto toured Ukambani, which is considered a Wiper stronghold, to launch projects and hunt for the Kamba vote. The President cautioned leaders against divisive politics.
Wiper defectors including MPs Kisoi Munyao (Mbooni), Regina Ndambuki (Kilome), Rachael Nyamai (Kitui South) and Katemi Makenga (Kaiti), and former Tip Tip leader Kalembe Ndile took part in the tour.
