Governor Alfred Mutua has postponed a thanksgiving prayers' meeting that was earlier scheduled to take place at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos town on Saturday.
The rally has been moved to unspecified date.
In a statement, Machakos County Media and Communications Advisor, Katua Nzile said the rally was postponed after part of dignitaries, religious leaders, and politicians who had been invited confirmed having busy schedules and requested for a new date.
The official said a new date will be announced in due course.
“We wish to apologize to our many supporters from different parts of Kenya, some who are already in Machakos waiting for the rally for any inconveniences,” Nzile said.
The prayers meeting was meant to celebrate Mutua’s re-election and his recent victory against former Kathiani MP Wavinya Ndeti at the Supreme Court.
Top politicians and dignitaries had been expected to grace the rally.
Politics was also expected to take center stage owing to the fact that the three Ukambani governors Charity Ngilu, Kivutha Kibwana, and Mutua have vowed to work together and chart a new political direction for the region.
Mutua is among the top politicians who have declared their interests in the 2022 presidential election.
The Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader says he has what it takes to be the country’s 5th president.
