Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana dismisses his deputy Adelina Mwau's move to UDA
Makueni Governor Prof. Kivutha Kibwana has dismissed a move by his deputy governor Adelina Mwau to join Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA party.
Ms. Mwau was welcomed to the DP’s political camp on Tuesday morning at Ruto's official residence in Karen.
“The Hustler Nation is growing bigger and bigger. This morning we welcome Adelina Mwau, the Deputy Governor of Makueni County, to UDA. Karibu Mama,” said Ruto in a tweet.
Kivutha Kibwana, in a statement issued on Tuesday, termed the move by his
deputy as “clandestine dealings”, adding that the decision would jeopardise their
“My attention has been drawn to clandestine dealings between Adelina Mwau (deputy governor Makueni County) and United Democratic Alliance. She had even pledged to take with her a huge delegation of our common political friends to UDA, who declined her overtures,” said Kibwana.
He added: “While I respect Adelina for the good working relations for the last 9 years, her latest move puts our working together on the edge. The voice of the people of Makueni has always been our guide in decision making. I will not abandon that principle for political expediency. ADELINA will walk alone.”
The Governor reiterated that the people of Makueni County are in support of the Azimio La Umoja movement led by ODM leader Raila Odinga.
