• Ruto gave Alfred Mutua reasons why he should join Kenyan Kwanza and the reasons were convincing enough.
• Mutua says people assume he only has support in Machakos only but that is not the case.
Ex-Machakos governor Alfred Mutua has opened up as to why he ditched Azimio for Kenya Kwanza.
He says Azimio was full of people who only cared about their well-being rather than that of Kenyan citizens.
Speaking during an interview with Tuko, the fashionable politician shared
"I realized my manifesto was in line with William Ruto's thinking.
He had an idea of what was ailing Kenya.
Azimio was full of people who were not ready to give up because of the business deals involved.
It was full of leaders who wanted jobs. they were not interested in changing Kenya."
Mutua says he had been approached by different people to ditch Azimio but he couldn't because his team was being threatened.
"Kangata called me severally, Murkomen had also tried my chief of staff but I turned the offer down.
One day Kangata approached me while out on a walk and asked me to meet Ruto."
Did he finally meet the new President-elect?
"Ruto finally called me and we met at Junction mall on Ngong road.
He got into my car and we drove around without the bodyguards.
He told me why he wanted me to join his team."
Mutua says shifting camps is the best decision he ever made.
"We were harassed and my people were scared, some were sleeping in their cars.
It had become personal. I went back to my people and they decided whatever happens we were going to Kenya Kwanza."
On Monday, September 5, 2022, the Supreme Court unanimously confirmed William Ruto as President-elect.
“We declare the election of the 1st Respondent as president-elect to be valid under Article 143 of the constitution," Martha Koome said.
Ruto received 50% plus one of the total votes cast, according to Chief Justice Martha Koome, who read the verdict on Monday.
"It is not mathematical sound and that the rounding off of IEBC was correct. The petitioners did not offer a water tight case," Koome said.
