As quoted in a publication by People's Daily on Monday, the members argue that the Water, Sanitation and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary wants to have a say on who succeeds her despite now being a state officer,
According to Thuo, Wahome has her own preferred candidate who she wants handed the UDA party ticket, with reports of also coercing the constituency staff to campaign for a certain candidate.
"We have information that the staff of the former MP are also being coerced to campaign for this particular candidate which is unacceptable. We are urging CS Wahome to desist from engaging in active politics now that she is serving in the Cabinet, and she is a civil servant," said Thuo.
Thuo claimed that if the events turn out as they are, the nominations expected to take place on November 26 would not be free and fair, urging the UDA party to dispatch new team to oversee the nomination process.
