Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua is due to officially launch the Maendeleo Chap Chap Movement today at the Bomas of Kenya.
It is expected that delegates from all 47 counties will attend the event and Mutua says it will focus on development and people driven politics.
More than 50 MPs, 350 MCAs and many hopefuls are also expected to attend and the movement has already opened offices in 35 counties.
The Machakos Governor has in the past stated that the Maendeleo Chap Chap movement wave is ‘unstoppable’ as it brought a paradigm shift in Ukambani politics which, he said, was now tilting to development instead of populist rhetoric.
He had also stated that he will defend his seat on the Maendeleo Chap Chap party ticket.
Maendeleo Chap Chap and Unity Movement, early this year was declared a political party.
He had stated that his decision to defend his seat in 2017 through Maendeleo Chap Chap was inspired by mistrust in the Wiper Party.
