Kibwezi West MP Mwengi Mutuse has told off Makueni Governor Mutula Kilonzo Junior over what he termed as mistreatment of Kibwezi residents.

Speaking last Weekend, Mutuse said no one has the power to transfer resources and projects meant for his constituency to any other part.

“No one will stop projects in Kibwezi be it a Senator or Governor. Are you getting me? if you want to stop projects go and do it somewhere else. Governor you are making hawkers hold protests and writing letters that projects will not continue unless you are consulted. Is that project being done at your mother’s home? It is being built in Makindu.” a furious Mutuse said.

“We have decided we will build a market in Makindu and that won’t change despite those letters. No one applied to be born in Makindu, Mbooni, or Kilome.” He added.

The Maendeleo Chap Chap MP also lamented the demotions of some of his constituents working at Makueni County Executive.

“As Kibwezi West MP When Kibwana handed over Power to Mutula our son Musyoka was a chief officer, he (Mutula) assumed power and made him a cleaner in the ward administrator’s office. That is disrespect. Peter’s brother was a director of the ministry of Health and he has now been taken to Kilungu Hospital and demoted from being a director. Dr. Paul Musila was almost sacked because of where he comes from.” Mutuse went on.

“I can’t be a leader whose people are being mistreated. Return Kiliko and Musyoka Kivungi to the positions they were interviewed for by the public service board. Hapana! it is not a crime that we were born in Kibwezi. If this won’t happen I will mobilize my people from Emali to Mtito Andei to boycott paying taxes.” The MP threatened.

Mwala: showdown as Kawaya faces fierce rivals in re-election bid

Mwala MP Eng. Vincent Musyoka Musau alias Kawaya, is gearing up for a fiercely contested re-election bid as he aims to secure his fourth term in office. 

The upcoming 2027 elections have drawn several high-profile challengers, signaling a heated battle for the Mwala parliamentary seat. 

These political heavyweights are surely not bringing a knife in this gunfight as they prepare to unseat Kawaya.

Kilei Mutinda, a contractor, promises economic revitalization and job creation. Kilei lost to Kawaya twice in the 2017 and 2022 general elections.

Eng. Dennis Mumo, known by his nickname Tiger, has a reputation for his dynamic approach and strong connection with the youth, which could significantly sway the younger electorate. He is a lecturer at JKUAT and a businessman with interests in construction and entertainment.

Julius Masisya, a seasoned community organizer, has built a strong following with his development projects and grassroots engagement.

Thomas Kasoa, a former two-term Member of the county assembly with a robust background in education and public policy, is seen as a candidate of change, appealing to voters eager for new leadership.  He currently serves as the Chair Nairobi City County Public Service Board.

Scholar Peter Kathukya who also ran in the 2022 elections is said to be in the race.

Kawaya, elected on a UDA ticket known for his outspoken nature and dedication to his constituents, is not one to back down easily. His tenure has been marked by significant projects and initiatives aimed at improving infrastructure and social services in Mwala. In 3 elections he has successfully run against the Wiper wave and won with CCU, Chap chap and now UDA.

However, the emergence of strong contenders suggests that his path to re-election might not be smooth.

Political pundits predict that the upcoming election will be one of the most competitive in Mwala’s recent history. With each candidate presenting compelling visions for the future, the electorate faces a critical decision on whether to continue with Kawaya’s leadership or to embrace new perspectives and ideas.

When the campaigns intensify, the focus will undoubtedly be on addressing the key issues that matter most to Mwala’s residents. Geopolitics will also be at play. The incumbent comes from Mbiuni ward, Kasoa and Kathukya also come from the same ward.

The electorate’s choice will shape the constituency’s direction for years to come, making this election a pivotal moment in Mwala’s political landscape.

Machakos Deputy Governor threatens to expose MP Caleb’s Mutua era deals

Machakos Deputy Governor Francis Mwangangi has threatened to expose Machakos Town MP Caleb Mule’s deals during Mutua’s tenure as Governor.

Speaking after a holy mass and conferment of confirmation sacrament service for Machakos cathedral parish at our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, Machakos, Mwangangi claimed that MP Caleb had failed in his work, resulting in attacks on other leaders.

“If he (Caleb) continues to speak, I have his file of the ghost projects he did on my desk and I will tell the people of Machakos these things. Let’s unite and ensure the people of Machakos get services avoiding insults and fights.” Mwangangi said.

“In Machakos Town constituency, we are lagging behind look at the projects Munyaka had done of renovating schools, buying them buses, roads, etc we don’t see anything new currently even an inch or a kilometer of roads.” He added.

Mwangangi asked elected leaders to work without fighting each other to push the development agenda of Machakos and the region.

“As Ukambani leadership and mostly Machakos, let’s put our people first. Machakos was the first capital city in this country. I want to ask leaders to put Machakos first. Regarding roads, we have KENHA and should be discussing to ensure Kyumbi-Machakos road is dualled and Mheshimiwa Munyaka was following it. We have Machakos University and we should be lobbying to get 2 billion to make it like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.” The vocal deputy Governor reiterated.

Last week, Machakos Town MP Caleb Mule had asked Mwangangi to respect elected leaders as he was not elected.

CS Alfred Mutua renews scathing attacks on Kalonzo Musyoka

Cabinet Secretary for Tourism, and Wildlife, Dr. Alfred Mutua launched a scathing attack on Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka saying that his days are over as the Kamba Kingpin.

While addressing residents in Mumoni Ward, Mwingi North Constituency, CS Mutua said that the Kamba Community should be ready to replace Kalonzo since his time has elapsed and he has stopped being helpful to the community.

The former Governor of Machakos likened the Wiper Leader to an old bull that has ceased being productive and thus it should be sold to avoid wiping away a whole generation.

“We have had a bull that tried to give birth to offspring all in vain in our community and when he tried to stand up he has been failing. Do you still want to continue keeping the bull yet it is not productive or do you want to get another productive bull?” CS Mutua asked the crowd.


He also pointed out that good calculative politics are good for the Kamba community to get development from the national government and thus the Kamba community should now focus on who will be their next national leader and ignore Kalonzo who has failed in getting the community to the government.

“It’s now time for another bull to take over, let’s look for another new bull that will be productive for the Kamba Community to continue thriving. If the bull is old and unproductive, no matter how much you love the bull, it will be useless if you don’t replace it,” Mutua added.

Drumming support for the Kenya Kwanza Government, CS Mutua affirmed that the government led by President Ruto is keen to ensure that the Kamba Community benefits from the government compared to the past when the community was left to perish. He urged the Kamba Community to fully back the Kenya Kwanza Government and assured them that they would reap big.

“We want development for our people because someone who is going to construct roads, bring water closer to our people and better healthcare is a development-oriented person whom we should support as a community. When the person brings development to our people we still vote for him again to bring more development and that’s how life is,” he stated.

Speaker Kinengo addresses water shortage in Kitui and Mwingi towns

Kitui County Assembly Speaker, Kevin Kinengo Katisya has addressed the water shortage issue that has been experienced in Kitui County’s major towns.

Speaking during a public engagement forum in Mwingi, Speaker Kinengo assured Kitui residents that the water shortage issue would be sorted out in a week.

Kinengo said that the water shortage was due to unpaid electricity bills by the Kitui Water and Sewerage Company (KITWASCO) and Kiambere-Mwingi Water and Sewerage Company (KIMWASCO) which supplies water in Kitui Municipality and Mwingi Town respectively.

He added that according to the Water Chief Officer, Nathan Vungo, the issue is being addressed and water will be restored in the shortest time possible.

“I talked to the Water Chief Officer, Nathan Vungo, who assured me that they have paid the electricity bills which were to the tune of Ksh. 50 Million and water will be available soon. The bills were paid on Thursday, 9th May 2024, and as you are aware Friday was a holiday thus the payments will be reflected on Monday to sort out the issue. The water may take close to a week before it is pumped to our towns from Masinga,” the Kitui County Assembly Boss stated.

“The Chief Officer told me that the water will be available from 17th May 2024 onwards so that the water problem may be sorted. “The County Government of Kitui serves all the people of Kitui equally that’s why I will support my MCAs to ensure that even if it means they pass a crucial motion guiding on how Kitui residents will get water to their households,” Kinengo added.

There has been a water shortage in Kitui town, Mwingi town, and their environs since March 2024 a thing that has made the Kitui residents plea the County Government to address the issue so that they can get clean water in the towns.
