More than 10 MCA candidates from Matungulu constituency have declared their support for Matungulu MP candidate Philip Munyao who is vying as an independent candidate.
The MCA candidates had attended a rally at Tala Boys Primary where they endorsed Dr. Philip saying that he was the only person able to bring change to Matungulu constituency.
Duncan Mbithi Maasai, an MCA candidate on a CCU party ticket said that gone are the days that people voted for a party because of its popularity in the region but they are looking for a leader and for the MP Seat Philip was going to clinch and change Matungulu.
“I am supporting Dr. Philip because we have been doing party politics and electing people because of their party affiliations. We want leaders who are going to ensure that they put the needs of our people first ,” Mbithi said.
His words were echoed by William Mutiso who noted that even though the MCA candidates were competing for the same seat in the wards, they had come together to support Philip for the MP seat.
Philip who is vying as an independent candidate thanked the MCA candidates for the tremendous support towards his bid for MP promising to work hand in hand with the MCAs who would be elected to better the lives of Matungulu people.
“I am grateful for the great support that you have shown me and I promise to deliver to the people of Matungulu as well as work together with the ones who win and also work with the rest of you as you are residents of Matungulu,” said Philip.
“We need to elect a leader who knows the needs of our people a leader who is not dependant on a party to vouch for him but for a leader who cares about education, women groups, youth groups, PWDs among others,” he added.
Philip had met several organized groups such as Taxi drivers and Hawkers who reside in Tala. 12 MCA candidates from Tala Ward had attended, 5 from Matungulu East Ward, and other leaders.
