Machakos Gubernatorial candidate Nzioka Waita has dismissed his competitor Wavinya Ndeti and the running mate Francis Mwangangi as D Minus material who will cause disaster in Machakos if elected.
Speaking at Kivaa, Masinga during campaign meetings Friday evening, Nzioka Waita said he was the most qualified candidate to take over from Governor Mutua and pleaded with locals to consider him.
“Those who have land cases in Malili and Mavoko know themselves…I joined hands with this lady (Florence) because she is A material, schooled at Alliance, and is disciplined. She was taught Law by Prof. Kivutha Kibwana. I also hold 2 degrees, genuine not bought in Nakumatt like for the other lady.” Waita said.
“The other day the others went to Yatta and picked a former MP who was rejected by people (Francis Mwangangi). The lady herself is also a D Minus and D Minus plus D Minus equals a disaster in Machakos. Don’t dare. ” Waita added.
The CCU party leader also admitted to claims that he can’t speak fluent Kamba and defended himself saying Government business is only done in English and Swahili. He urged locals to choose leaders and not the parties they come from.
“The others when they come here they say Waita doesn’t know Kikamba, has big ears and he stays in Nairobi. Maliti stays in Nairobi, Wavinya, and Muthama too. I’m not fluent in Kamba but the Lady doesn’t know English. Government business is done in English and Kiswahili. There is no day you will go to an ambassador to speak in Kikamba. Let’s talk about leadership and Development.” He went on.
If elected, he promised to equip all hospitals with drugs taking a swipe at the current regime which he dismissed as full of theatrics.
Waita also promised to grow Sports by investing in the youth and stadia in every ward. On the issue of employment, he vowed to equip polytechnics and Technical institutes so that those who leave Form 4 and are unable to join colleges and universities go there to be equipped with different skills.
Waita was accompanied by his running mate Speaker Florence Mwangangi, Senatorial aspirant and ex-minister Mutua Katuku among other leaders.
