Criticized appetite for ethnic-based coalitions – Alfred Mutua


Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader Alfred Mutua has cautioned Kenyans against being herded in tribal blocs ahead of the 2022 General Election.

Addressing a press conference on Sunday, June 21 at his Mavoko office , Dr. Mutua has urged Kenyans to choose the country’s leaders based on their ability and vision rather than their ethnicity.

“Kenya needs politics and political parties based on ideologies and not tribal affiliations. We need to elect presidents and other leaders based on their vision and ability. Poverty does not discriminate on tribal lines,”

Dr. Mutua said.

The Machakos governor, who has already declared that he will gun for the presidency in 2022, implored Kenyans to resist leaders keen on herding communities in ethnic voting blocs for political gain. Also speaking to Radio Maisha Asubuhi Team he went ahead clarifying this from his political view. He always says he is fit to fight for a hire post in the Government and bring out more of what his political rivals are not doing.


Bringing to the table some evidence he refers the whole Kenyan citizens to see what Maendeleo Chap Chap has been doing in Machakos.

We have to force a radical shift in the way we see each other politically. It is quite laughable and indicator of how primitive our politics are that leaders can be rewarded and invited to the table not based on their ideology, previous work or ability but because of their tribes and the tribal block

He said
