Supremacy battle between the former Vice President Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka and Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua is the main reason why President Uhuru has suspended his Ukambani trip according to a State House source.
Uhuru has now given the two leaders another chance to reconcile before he comes in June. The two leaders have been at loggerheads since Mutua expressed interest in becoming a Kamba kingpin and has since been popularizing his Maendeleo Chap Chap Movement across the region.
Dr. Alfred has openly criticized the former Vice President’s leadership saying that he has been in power for over 30 years and has done nothing tangible to the Kamba people, while he (Governor Mutua) has been in power for only three years and has already secured jobs for youth and signed major contracts with international entities which once commenced will improve livelihoods of the Kamba people.
He holds that he is the fresh blood that deserves to take over from the old folks. On the other hand, Mr. Musyoka who is the principal leader of Wiper Party under which Dr. Mutua rose to power terms Mutua as defiant and destined to fail.
