Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua now says that IEBC demonstrations going on across the country are hypocritical and ill advised. He says he will not allow IEBC demonstrations in Machakos and he has advised CORD principals and their followers to channel their energies towards developing Kenya instead.
“Whether in Machakos or any part of Ukambani you will not see street demonstrations because Kambas are peaceful people. We also have a lot of work to do in developing Machakos and throwing stones to cause mayhem is not one of them” – Dr Alfred Mutua
Mutua criticized elected cord members who are pointing fingers at IEBC yet it’s the same entity that conducted 2013 polls that went in their favour. He challenged them to step down if the entity that declared them winners was incompetent and allow those that lost to take up their positions.
He accused the Wiper Party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka of misleading the Kamba community to join IEBC protests. He said his actions are driven by greed to acquire power and fame by all means necessary.
