Elect a clean person as governor, Wajungle tells Kiambu voters

By James Wainaina

Thika Town MP Patrick Wainaina alias Wajungle has urged Kiambu voters to elect an individual with clean record as the governor in the August 9 polls.

Wajungle, who is among the hopefuls for the seat, urged the voters to only elect persons with zero corruption history for substantial development to be realised in the county.

He said the next Kiambu governor should head a clean government based on proper work ethics and integrity.

While vowing to construct 1000 kilometres of tarmac road in the county once elected the county chief, Wajungle said the county will undergo an unimaginable transformation for the betterment of livelihoods.

He revealed that since he assumed office as Thika MP, about 62-kilometres of tarmac roads have been done.

Wajungle, who has announced he might contest as an independent, will square it out with former governor William Kabogo, incumbent governor James Nyoro, Senator Kimani Wamatangi, lecturer and former county CEC Juliet Kimemia and Kiambu County Assembly speaker Stephen Ndichu.

While he has not officially announced, all signs indicate that Wainaina will battle it out as an independent candidate after dropping his aspirations to use the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party ticket.

Former Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu has also announced his bid for the seat on UDA but is unlikely to be cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

Waititu was impeached by the MCAs and the verdict upheld by the Senate. He also faces graft charges.
