United Democratic Alliance (UDA) flagbearer in the upcoming Machakos senatorial by-elections slated for 18th March Urbanus Muthama Ngengele has vowed to ask questions on how billions allocated to Machakos county since 2013 have been used.
Speaking after an aspirants meeting in Machakos Saturday evening, Ngengele also vowed to take care of the interests of the business community in Machakos county and minorities in the county.
“I am ready to fly the hustler nation flag, I have decided to go and save the county of Machakos. The money we get is not pocket change. We will ask questions about the 10 billion that comes to the county every year. We will ask questions about the 10 years as that money is not equivalent to the work that we see.” He said.
“I want to be a big village manager for Machakos and bring change, to help Machakos people to get their rights. To the minorities and investors, I will protect you and ensure sustainable environment for you to invest here and employ our people. They need to observe the 70 percent rule that 70 percent of the jobs go to locals.” Urbanus Muthama Ngengele added.
Urbanus Muthama is set to face off with Wiper’s Agnes Kavindu, Mutua Katuku of Maendeleo Chap Chap, Lily Nduku of CCU, Simeon Kitheka of GDDP, and other 11 aspirants that have been cleared for nominations by the IEBC.
Speaking to the media UDA chairman Johnson Muthama said that the party was using the by-elections to grow its popularity calling on Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula to join a single party or end up in political oblivion.
“UDA is the leading party in our country right now. From Msambweni we won just through the face of the party, we now have a candidate in Matungu, Kabuchai, and other MCA by-elections.”
“This party has pushed Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, and Moses Wetangula in one corner. If they fail to create one party they will go into political oblivion before 2022. This has forced Uhuru and Raila to have one party. We will have 3 parties and this will help end tribalism brought by the small parties.” Muthama added.
