Azimio has suffered another disagreement over Machakos gubernatorial bid.

Former State House Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita's chances of winning the Machakos governorship have been discounted by former Transport and Infrastructure CAS Wavinya Ndeti.

Ms. Ndeti, who is competing on behalf of the Wiper Party for the county's top seat in the general election on August 9th, declared that she would not be frightened by Mr. Waita.

This is in response to claims that Waita who is standing for office as a member of the Chama Cha Uzalendo (CCU) has intimidated Wiper Party candidates. The Azimio la Umoja Coalition party which is affiliated with both Wiper and CCU has seen intense sibling rivalry in the race for the governorship.

The leader of the Wiper Party Kalonzo Musyoka had hinted that there might be internal discussions to persuade Mr. Waita to give up his ambitions and support Wavinya's candidacy.

Waita however, rejected such ideas and urged Kalonzo to drop the Machakos governor's contest and allow the electorate decide. Wiper's suggestion he said, was an act of desperation on Wiper's part because they formerly viewed him as a weakling.

Ms. Ndeti will square off against Mr. Waita, former UDA senator Johnson Muthama, deputy governor Francis Maliti of the Maendeleo Chap Chap party and Mr. Maliti.
