Former Water minister Mutua Katuku yesterday asked Machakos voters to be wary of foreigners campaigning in the county. Katuku, who is eyeing the Machakos governor seat, said some of his rivals are not natives of Machakos.
He said the leaders are claiming to be from Mwala yet they were born and raised in other counties. Speaking at Wamunyu and Kibauni in Mwala, Katuku asked the youth not to be misused by politicians in their campaigns.
The former Mwala MP said he will support the winner of the Wiper party nominations. Meanwhile, Youth and Sports assistant minister Wavinya Ndeti has urged women to stop shying away from taking loans.
Wavinya, who is also eyeing the Machakos governor seat, said it is unfortunate that women do not take loans for fear of defaulting on its repayment.
Wavinya was speaking at Peter Mulei Hotel in Machakos town during the closing of a week long women seminar on management of business ventures. The Kathiani MP asked the women to support her for the county's governor.
