Nzioka Waita Attacks Wavinya Ndeti ‘You’re Expired’ as the race for the Machakos gubernatorial seat hots up.
Former State House Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita, April 23, took a swipe at his competitor for Machakos gubernatorial seat, Wavinya Ndeti.
Waita blasted the former Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) for seeking to prevent him from campaigning in Kathiani, where Ndeti comes from.
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s former adviser dismissed the purported threats, saying he will not be scared by anyone, let alone an expired leader.
Nzioka, who is eyeing Machakos gubernatorial seat described Ndeti as a ‘catwalk leader’ who was oblivious of the struggles of Machakos County residents.
“I was told not to set foot in Kathiani, that it has its owners. I want them to have a look, and to take a good look, I am here today. She contested in 2013 and failed, came back in 2017 and flopped, now she is back again in 2022. Surely, even medicine expires after 10 years and so has she,” he stated.
He accused her of living large at the expense of the county. He warned the electorate against voting in Wavinya, suggesting that they will most likely face the same fate under her leadership.
“And if the role of a governor is to be followed around everywhere he goes with his personal toilet and red carpet to the point of forgetting about the welfare of the people, then the Member of County Assembly will bear the brunt,
“Now you want to vote in another whose only work is catwalk and cutex? How do you expect her to build schools if she refused to go to school? Impossible!” he added.
Nzioka Waita urged the residents to rally behind leaders who have a proven track record.
He noted that while he served as Uhuru’s right-hand man for seven years before his resignation, the Head of State counted on him to deliver.
Nzioka is contesting Machakos seat against Wavinya Ndeti of the Wiper Party and former Senator Johnstone Muthama on the UDA party ticket.
