Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader has rubbished claims that he is corrupt by disclosing that he amassed his wealth as a filmmaker.
Mr Mutua has in recent times come under fire from politicians Johnstone Muthama and Machakos Senator Boniface Kabaka who want him to be probed by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).
In response, governor Mutua on Tuesday said he is prepared to be arrested and investigated over graft.
“If I am found guilty please arrest me and let them be careful what they wish for because they also have questions to answer,” Dr Mutua said.
Speaking to a gathering of businessmen at Kenyatta stadium, Mutua said he made millions from the hit TV drama ‘Cobra Squad’.
“I started my own company at the age of 19 years; where I formed a company then left the country. When I came back I started ‘Cobra Squad’ where the first series earned me Sh25 million and the next film earned me Sh11 million,” Mutua said.
The former government spokesperson said he invested the money buying apartments in Nairobi. He said he also owns an aviation company and has investments outside the country.
The governor is also building a five-star hotel in Machakos town which has been financed by a loan.
