Dr. Alfred Nganga Mutua was born in Masii, a remote part of Machakos District in Kenya's Eastern Province. He attended Dagoretti High School for his O’ levels.

PROFESSIONAL CAREER
In 2002, when the Kibaki administration came to power under National Rainbow Coalition (NARC), there was loads of hope and optimism from Kenyans. One of the biggest promises made to Kenyans was the Establishing of a Public Communications Department that would see the public access all Public Information held by the government as well as keep the masses informed on how the government was Fairing on its duties.

The new NARC government created the Office of Public Communications Secretary, popularly known as Government Spokesman and appointed Dr. Alfred Mutua as its first holder. Much was expected of him due to his job experience and educational background. He was charged with the duty of collecting information and analyzing events within the set-up of the government. Essentially, his work entailed communicating information to and from media, government ministries, state corporations and the public on behalf his employer, the State.

Prior to his appointment, Dr. Alfred Mutua served as an Assistant Professor in the College of Communication and Media Sciences, Zayed University in Dubai where he conducted extensive research on the use of “Media for Democracy and Development.”

POLITCAL CAREER
After close to nine years as the Government Spokesperson, Dr. Alfred Mutua resigned in September 2012 and joined the race for Machakos County Gubernatorial seat competing against a seasoned politician Wavinya Ndeti, who was then the Member of Parliament for Kathiani Constituency (now split to Mavoko and Kathiani).

He became the flag bearer of the Wiper Democratic Movement Party and eventually won the election with a landslide, 71% of the vote.

Dr. Alfred Mutua is the only governor who has hit the ground running in implementing the devolved Government system. He has set the pace on how county governments should be managed and run. Through his focus and leadership, he was the first governor to constitute his county government and barely two months after his election into office, he spearheaded the first ever County Investment Forum that attracted investors from all corners of the world. The conference saw the signing of Memorandums of Understanding amounting to Ksh.56.3 billion.

Indeed, from being the FIRST Government Spokesman to the FIRST Governor of Machakos County he has been a trail blazer with enviable leadership skills.
