Wiper Democratic Movement supporters in parts of Mbitini and Mukaa in Makueni county have raised the alarm over membership card buying scam by a nominated councillor.
The supporters allege Florence Nzilani Nthitu has recruited a cartel that operated in the areas to buy WDM cards and issue the unsuspecting members with the Narc party cards.
Mary Musyoki from Kavuthu in Mbitini said the cartel targeted women and youth groups where they pay the groups chairpersons to get the details of their members to be registered as Narc members.
"The cartel is led by councillor Nthitu and it has so far registered over 700 WDM members to Narc. Our chairpersons get paid between Sh3,000 to Sh5,000 to furnish them with our details," she said.
She further claimed her name and those of her fellow group members were illegally transferred to Narc without their knowledge after their
chairlady was allegedly paid Sh3,000.
A local businessman John Kisu said he has seen two lists containing the names of the unsuspecting WDM members whose membership has been transferred to Narc.
Nthiitu, however, denied the allegations saying the claims were politically instigated. She said the WDM leader was scared of the massive defection of the WDM members who have voluntarily registered as Narc members.
