Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua is among the most influential politicians in the country.
Mutua has positively impacted on majority of the residents' lives having improved the county's infrastructure alongside executing various development projects, thereby making Machakos County a better place to be.
He is also the Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader.
After defecting from the Wiper party in 2017 and winning the Machakos governorship with Maendeleo Chap Chap, Mutua has proven his doubters that he is a true leader.
His party has support all over the Ukambani region, he is popular among the electorate.
As a governor, he has achieved a lot and people love him.
Mutua has lately been seen working closely with his colleagues from the Kamba nation, governors Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) and Charity Ngilu (Kitui) with an aim of uniting the region.
Many perceive him as a leader with a vision. This could easily make the governor get more votes from the region in 2022 polls as compared to the former Vice President.
If Mutua succeeds in his mission of uniting the locals, then Kalonzo will have no choice but to surrender.
The governor will be 'untouchable'. He will get into books of records for making the Eastern region vote as a block in the next General Elections.
Mutua is among the few known leaders in the country who have declared their 2022 presidential bids.
