P Unit’s Frasha officially announced his candidature to vie for Member of County Assembly (MCA) position sometimes in January 2017.

Frasha however didn’t reveal which party he would be vying on for MCA Athi River Township, there were speculations he was joining Raila’s ODM after he was seen rubbing shoulders with ODM deputy director of elections.

Now it’s clear Frasha won’t be joining ODM, neither is he joining Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper party. The P Unit rapper has instead chose to vie for Athi River Township ward on Maendeleo Chap Chap ticket.

But why did he choose Mutua over Kalonzo Musyoka who is the political kingpin of Ukambani politics?

“Today i joined Maendeleo Chap Chap due to the principles this party stand for. I will work with governor Alfred Mutua to bring the developments that he has done and replicated this to Athi river,” Frasha said.

The rapper shares a close relationship with the Machakos governor; he was rubbing shoulders with Mutua long before thought of joining active politics.

Meanwhile Maendeleo Chap Chap has also received a prominent figure in politics who defected from ODM, Gitobu Imanyara will be seeking to capture Imenti Central seat on a Maendeleo Chap Chap ticket.
