Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) party has condemned unruly politicians against pulling stunts that would derail and lead to the postponement of the 2017 General Elections.
The party leader Alfred Mutua speaking today at the Party’s headquarters, where he received 25 defectors Members of County Assembly (MCAs) from Tharaka Nithi, said that the court challenges and accusations presented by politicians are machinations that “could have been addressed earlier but are used to cause confusion”.
“It is important for this country to go to the elections on August 8 and having studied the politics of Kenya, we have started seeing politicians trying to derail the process through road blocks that try to hinder free and fair elections. This is an indication that such politicians want the elections moved,” said Mutua.
He said that such moves by politicians to make the General elections seem difficult in a bid to postpone it to a later date would only cost the country more resources in planning and re-organizing citing that Africans are poor despite immense resources due to politics of incitement.
“This is unacceptable and should not be paved way for because that money would rather be channeled to building roads, providing water and revive industries for our young people,” said Mutua.
Mutua instead wants politicians to Adhere to constitutional requirements and be ready for the elections, citing that Maendeleo Chap Chap is ready to meet opponents on August 8.
Yesterday, MCC was initially set to receive defectors from Tharaka Nithi and Nyamira counties but after three hours of closed meetings, only Tharaka Nithi defectors were received.
The past few weeks have seen anxiety surround the voter registration process in Kenya with the ruling Jubilee coalition and the opposition accusing each other of fraud.
