Nominated Senator Isaac mwaura has told off Governor Ferdinand Waititu for promoting tribalism in Kiambu County.
This comes after the governor clashed with Kahawa Wendani MCA Cyrus Omondi when he led the demolition of kiosks set up near a public toilet. It is also alleged that Waititu asked Kiambu people not to vote for non-locals in his county.
Waititu condemned Kahawa Wendani residents for allowing too many outsiders who voted in Cyrus Omondi as their MCA.
“That is exactly what happened, and that is how he got the seat, we will never allow it (electing non-Kikuyus) to happen again,” Waititu said.
Mwaura who was agitated by the governor’s remarks has cautioned Waititu against profiling certain communities in Kiambu County.
“I want to condemn Waititu’s statement that Kiambu residents should not vote for outsiders. I want to remind him that he came to Kiambu from Nairobi and our people elected him,” said Mwaura.
Senator Mwaura’s sentiments were echoed by Gatundu South legislator, Moses Kuria who said that, “The people of Kahawa Wendani found it fit to elect Omondi as their ward representative, they should not be blamed for exercising their constitutional right.”
