  • Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua is a man of many firsts, and he has chosen to put his cards close to heart as he gears towards the 2022 presidential race. 

    In an interview with Radio Maisha presenter Billy Miya, Mutua revealed what he described as one of his best kept secrets after being prompted to reveal what many did not know about him despite being a public figure. 

    “I am an expert in karate, judo and kung fu. I have been training since I was 9 years old. I’m also a black belt holder,” he disclosed. 

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, the governor stated he developed an interest in the sport after realising that he was very flexible, fast, and agile. He started training at the Riruta Baptist Church.

    After Mutua secured a chance to travel to the US at the age of 21, he also enrolled for temple kung fu, a softer type of martial art whereby they were taught how to map human being's bodies. 

    “When I was about nine years old, there was somebody who taught us sort-of kind of karate. It’s Japanese and after that, I did taekwondo which is Korean. In Taekwondo, you use more kicking.

    “But later on in life when I was in the US studying, I did temple kung-fu which is more of the softer martial arts,” he narrated. 

    During the interview, he challenged Billy to throw a punch which he tactfully blocked and pretended to hit the surprised presenter. 

    He also demonstrated his high front and back kicks. The governor told Kenyans.co.ke that he had never had to use martial arts to defend himself

    “The training teaches you to walk away, self discipline and both physical and mental strength,” he explained. 

    During the sit down with Billy, Mutua was asked a hypothetical question “Suppose someone put a gun to your head and asked you to call someone from your contact list. If they pick you’re killed and if they don’t pick you survive, who would you call?” 

    “I would call William Ruto,” Mutua answered, throwing Billy into a wild laughter. 

    The governor also disclosed five crucial things he can’t live without. “A good house with food and security, spirituality and an environment where I can worship and lastly good health services,” he responded.
