Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka is no doubt a happy man after Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua’s 2017 election victory was nullified by the Court of Appeal on Friday.

Governor Mutua has been giving Kalonzo sleepless nights after he defected from Wiper.

The Machakos Governor had expressed his interest in the nation’s top seat come 2022 polls.

The nullification of his win takes him back to the drawing board.

Mutua was the only Maendeleo Chap Chap Movement gubernatorial candidate who had won against the rivals before the twist of events.

The political outfit has also been dealt a major blow as the governor sought to gain more support across the country.

Kalonzo has a better chance of regaining his control over the region’s politics now, following the change in the decision made by the High Court.

Former Kathiani MP Wavinya Ndeti will now be a force to reckon with following the move.

Kalonzo and Mutua have not been in good terms since they parted ways after 2013 general election.

The governor has been faulting Wiper MCAs accusing them of trying to sabotage his development projects.

Mutua almost lost his seat when MCAs unsuccessfully attempted to impeach him sometime back.

The nullification of his win will definitely change the political dynamics of this nation ahead of the 2022 race.
