Accompanied by Machakos County Governor Alfred Mutua and several other politicians from the region, Katuku presented his papers to the county IEBC officials today at 8.00am at the commissions offices in Machakos.
Having met all the required prerequisites he was thereafter cleared to run to fill the seat left vacant following the demise of former Senator Daudi Kabaka.
