Machakos Deputy Governor Francis Maliti has unveiled his running mate for the Machakos Gubernatorial seat.
Speaking at Kangundo during the burial of Alexander Mbali the son of Rose Wambua, Maliti said that he had settled on a Deputy Governor from Kangundo after much consultation.
Maliti unveiled Rose Wambua who had been a parliamentary aspirant in Kangundo in 2017 saying that she was fit to be his running mate.
“I Have done my research and have come to realize that Kangundo sub-county has never produced someone to run for Governor. Kangundo was the home of Paul Ngei so it is a key pillar in Machakos politics,” he said.
“My running mate is Rose Wambua. Because Kangundo people deserve a bigger seat in Machakos County. Rose and I have come to the necessary agreement,” Maliti added.
Rose Wambua comes from Kangundo sub-county and in 2017 she had vied for Kangundo parliamentary seat on a Jubilee ticket and she was position two in the election.
