Machakos governor Alfred Mutua together with four members of parliament, have been suspended from Wiper Democratic Party, for showing support to other political parties.

In a report submitted to the deputy chairman of the Wiper Party, Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jr, the disciplinary committee, led by advocate Harun Ndubi accused MPs Regina Ndambuki, John Munuve, Kisoi Munyao, Richard Makenga and Governor Mutua of having decamped to other parties.

“Governor of Machakos County, Dr Alfred Mutua, and the Disciplinary Committee finds that his conduct expressly and constructively amounts to publicly advocating for the formation of another political party and promoting the interest, ideology and policies of the Maendeleo Chap Chap – which is not a member of CORD coalition,” read part of the report in part.

“It is for the above reasons that we, the disciplinary committee recommend that the member be deemed to have resigned from WDMK in terms of section 14 (5) of the political parties Act,” read part of the recommendations.

Governor Mutua has been at logger heads with Wiper’s party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and last week, the governor accused Kalonzo of land grabbing in Mavoko.

Mutua tabled a report before the Senate Finance committee on Wednesday, saying Kalonzo Musyoka, Mavoko MP Patrick Makau and an unnamed Senator were linked to the crime.

“Land is being grabbed in Mavoko and I am trying to stop it, but there are cartels funded by senior politicians,” he told the committee. (Read more…)

Last month, Mutua threatened to sue Kalonzo for defaming him as a “kidnapper” and a “killer” when the former vice president linked him to the disappearance of Machakos Deputy Governor Benard Kiala’s daughter, Kathleen Nduku.

I cannot tolerate a leader of his stature casting aspersions on my behaviour and calling me a kidnapper and a killer. These are unfortunate utterances,” he said
