Nyeri: Gachagua Warns Residents Of Electing Independent Or Azimio-Affiliated MCA In 2022 Polls

Mathira Member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua has warned residents of Ruguru Ward of electing an independent or Azimio La Umoja movement-affiliated Member of County Assembly (MCA) in August 2022 general election.

Speaking during the funeral and burial events of his late elder brother James Reriani in the aforementioned ward on Tuesday, Gachagua cautioned residents who had divergent opinions on whom should be their MCA in the upcoming polls.

While making his remarks, he called the area MCA Erastus Karanja Muriuki who present at the function to step foward. Thereafter, he warned the mourners to be careful on their leadership choices because the move comes with consequences.

He called on them to re-elect Muriuki, who would be defending his seat on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket, because in his observation, the County Assembly lawmaker had delivered on most of his 2017 pre-election promises. He revealed that Muriuki has been helping poor locals by educating all their children who risked dropping out of school because of lack of school fees.

According to Gachagua, if the locals made a mistake of electing individuals who have no proven development record, they would live to regret their actions and, he would not be blamed because he could be working from Nairobi as Kenya's next deputy president.

"If you make a mistake of not voting for Karanja, then do not blame. Have you not seen that I have a job in Nairobi?" Gachagua enquired.

This comes as 2022 general election day draws close as politicians aspiring for offices in Kenya, right from MCA to presidential seats jostle for strategies to emerge victorious.
