Machakos county governor Dr.Alfred Mutua is reportedly said to be under siege following solid backing of Wavinya Ndeti by all the NASA affiliate parties to go for the governor’s seat.
Ndeti who decamped from her Chama Cha Uzalendo(CCU) and joined Wiper seems to have received Kalonzo Musyoka’s blessings to unseat Governor Dr.Alfred Mutua.
Mutua who risks loosing to Ndeti has recently been heard calling upon for his Deputy Governor Bernard Kiala for reunion.Thetwo fell apart just a year after their election in 2013 and have not been seeing an eye with each other since then.
Kiala who has expressed interest in unseating Mutua will now face Ndeti inthe Wiper primaries. He has said he will support Ndeti if he losses in the nominations and has asked Ndeti to do so if he beat her.
The Wiper leader’s open endorsement of Ndeti to face Mutua has been perceived as a way to stamp his authority as the Kamba kingpin over Mutua.
