, NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 19 – Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) party leader Alfred Mutua took his popularisation tour to the coast where he challenged voters not to elect leaders along tribal lines but based on their track record.
Speaking during the three-day campaign, Mutua who was accompanied by Meru gubernatorial candidate Kilemi Mwiria said the party was committed to improving the lives of Kenyans.
He reiterated that the party will conduct free and fair nominations for all seats and pledged that those elected on the party ticket will be those who will serve the public selflessly.
Over 25 aspirants have declared their interest to vie on the party ticket.
During the tour, Mutua received aspirants from other parties including Jubilee and Wiper who will vie for county assembly and parliamentary seats.
They included Fauz Matano (Kaloleni MP aspirant) and Halima Anwar (Mombasa Woman Representative aspirant.
Mutua who addressed meetings with aspirants and supporters in Mariakani and Lunga Lunga in Kwale County further criticised the slow pace of development by successive governments in the past.
He stated that his party will focus on the basics that will give Kenyans a dignified life while also addressing economic empowerment to bring jobs and create wealth.
He pleaded with them to elect leaders on the MCC party pledging that the party policy is to get its MPs buy a water drilling rig in each constituency where the party wins and an ambulance for every ward where the party wins an MCA seat.
Mutua said the party will field candidates across the country and who will vie for various political seats but will support President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election.
