Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and EACC have been asked to investigate Civil Servants who are being used by politicians to campaign for them.
Speaking during a meet the people tour in Kathiani Central Ward, CCU Party Leader and Machakos Gubernatorial Candidate Nzioka Waita alleged that Daniel Yumbya, CEO of Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council(KMPDC) was going round telling civil servants that they should campaign for and support Wavinya Ndeti.
Waita alleged that they had gotten information that Yumbya was telling civil servants that they had been given a directive to campaign for Wiper Machakos Gubernatorial candidate Wavinya Ndeti.
“We have gotten information that one director of Medical Practitioners Council Daniel Yumbya is going around telling workers from National Government that the president has given a directive they campaign for Wavinya Ndeti,” Waita claimed.
“Yesterday they were in Kangundo and Matungulu now they are in Yatta and we have that intelligence. I have worked with his excellency the president and I know how he works and he has not given such a directive because he is not involved in this seat. IEBC and EACC should check into that because civil servants are not allowed to campaign,” he added.
Waita further called on people not to elect leaders because of their party but ensure that the people they elect especially for Governor are going to deliver.
“We should stop this nonsense of electing people from the same party, “suit”. We need people who can redeem our county, managers and not politicians because this is not a political seat but a managerial seat, Machakos needs a manager,” he went on.
Waita was accompanied by his running mate Speaker Florence Mwangangi, Senatorial Aspirants John Mutua Katuku, Urbanus Muthama Ngengele, and several MCA aspirants.
