Governor Alfred Mutua has clarified that Maendeleo Chap Chap candidate for the upcoming Machakos by-election will not step down in favour of any interested candidate.
Governor Mutua was reacting to pictures circulating on social media platforms of him and UDA candidate Urbanus Muthama.
Mutua said he was just having tea at certain coffee house when leaders allied to UDA Hon Vincent Musyoka (Mwala), Hon Victor Munyaka (Machakos) and the UDA candidate among others walked in to share a table with him.
He dismissed the information as propaganda.and said they only discussed BBI as he urged them to campaign peacefully. The Machakos county boss said he saw some people who had come together with the UDA leaders take pictures but he did not stop them.
Mutua maintains that the race to support his candidate is still on and pictures on social media with captions purporting that his candidate was withdrawing from the race to support Mr Ngengele are just a mere propaganda and added that such people should mature up and desist from childish machinations.
