A section of Makueni Wiper MCAs Urbanus Wambua and Elizabeth Mutindi Kiio have cautioned Makueni county employees who are being involved in the campaigns of the Muungano candidate in the Kitise/Kithuki ward by-election Joseph Mutisya.
Speaking during a campaign rallies for the Wiper candidate Sebastian Muli in Kitise and Mathiani, the MCAs said it’s contrary to the law for county employees to take partisan positions.
“What is bothering me is one thing, some people from the county are coming to give money here. Government employees should not be dishing out money and causing confusion. If they want to use their positions to undress Kalonzo as a community we will not accept.” Urbanus Wambua said.
“Before this voting ends we will have a case of the county resources being misappropriated. Those people should stay in their offices and I wonder who has been left in the offices. Should CECMs and COs be campaigning?” MCA Mutindi asked.
“That money they are dishing out where has it come from? Did they bring it before? We will ask questions once this election is over.” She added.
Sarah Mulwa also took a swipe at Governor Kibwana for going against the political Parties act in the Kitise/Kithuki by-election and campaigning for a candidate who is not from his party Wiper.
“Governor Kivutha is elected in Wiper and was supported by Kalonzo. I ask him to support Sebastian Muli of Wiper. If he doesn’t do that we will know he has betrayed the community.” She said.
The Kitise/Kithuki By-election is scheduled for next week 4th March 2020. The seat fell vacant after MCA Kelvin Mutuku resigned and became the clerk of Makueni County Assembly.
