Wiper Party’s unveiling of Agnes Kavindu has been seen as setting a confrontation with UDA party which is yet to name it’s preferred flag bearer.
Kavindu who is the estranged wife of former Machakos Senator and current founding leader of the United Democratic Alliance Party (UDA), was handed the nomination certificate by party officials today, 13th Wednesday 2021.
This is to set a duel with her former husband who is expected to lead the campaign front of UDA party in the Machakos senatorial by-election.
This will be a real boost to Maendeleo Chap Chap Party’s candidate Hon. Mutua Katuku who is currently enjoying great support from locals in the county.
Katuku said “Machakos deserves a God fearing Senator of good morals who can unite our people all the way from the family unit.”
“Am running for a political seat to serve the people of Machakos, not to settle marital scores”, he continued.
Katuku who is a former Minister for Water and Assistant Minister for Finance alluded confidence of winning the by-election after receiving women and youth groups who paid him a visit in his office.
He said, “It is barely 18 months to the next general elections. Machakos deserves a leader who understands how parliament and government works so that we do not waste time orienting a new person while other counties are progressing.”
“Let us put the interests of Machakos County above self”, he added.
4 years old Mutua Katuku, a Nairobi University alumni, will be presenting His nomination papers to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for clearing on Monday, 25th January 2021.
