Machakos Gubernatorial candidate Nzioka Waita has accused some of his opponents of using witchcraft to gain popularity and to try and bring him down.
Speaking at New Life Restoration Ministries in Kathangaita, Mlolongo, Waita claimed that his opponents are keen on ensuring he doesn’t get to the ballot in the August polls.
“I was called by one of the Bishops, and he asked me where I was, and I told him that I was driving. He told me to park my car we pray because he got a feeling that some of my competitors were doing ungodly things to bring me down together with Suluhu,” he narrated.
He added that the Bishop also told him that even when President Uhuru calls him to drop his gubernatorial bid, he shouldn’t do that.
Waita stated that he heard the Bishop’s plea, and thus, he won’t withdraw from the race even if Uhuru asks him to do so.
“Many people depend on me to save them, and up-to-date President Uhuru has not called me to tell me to drop my bid. He calls me to check on me and has never called me for any political discussion, and that’s why I would like to call upon the church to continue praying for us. We promise we won’t get tired of working for you people,” Waita stated.
He further called upon the residents to support him because he will work to bring change in Machakos and development to the people noting that he has been asking for votes from them in a mature manner compared to other candidates.
The ex-statehouse chief of staff dismissed claims that he is a Masai and doesn’t know to speak Kamba, saying that his opponents are focusing on him because they have no plan for the people of Machakos.
“They are insulting me every day; top political leaders are sitting down to plan how they will sabotage the new leaders like Waita because they are used to deceiving the people,” he added.
Waita also alleged that those who want to bring politics based on political parties want to steal from the people since they don’t have development agenda.
