Kibwezi West MP Mwengi Mutuse insists the Maendeleo Chapchap party will not dissolve and join United Democratic Alliance (UDA) and instead will continue mobilizing more leaders to join the party across the country.
Speaking at Makindu, Mutuse shot at UDA secretary general Cleophas Malala for asking parties in the Kenya Kwanza coalition to dissolve and join UDA in a bid to form a strong party.
The lawmaker called Malala a saboteur being used by the opposition to frustrate the leadership of President William Ruto.
“A few days ago we heard some people saying they will sabotage the government from outside and within. Malala I will call you by your name, you’re a saboteur and we know who has sent you because they too are saboteurs,” Mutuse said.
He added that Malala was lighting unnecessary fires in the coalition and it would not end well.
“The President has his plate full and there is no need to start unnecessary fights and distract the President from important matters. We are in Kenya Kwanza because the president invited us and he has not said anything to the contrary. Be informed we will not dissolve our party and instead we will go round the country and market it so that in the next elections we will have more leaders because the aim of forming a party is to one day lead the country,” Mutuse went on.
The former Machakos Chief of Staff also asked Malala to desist from addressing coalition matters through the media yet there are the right channels.
“There are better internal channels to address all these matters in the coalition and not through the media,” noted the lawmaker.
