My administration will recognize and promote those who defy orders to campaign for Raila Odinga, if anything you must strictly observe and maintain professionalism to serve members of the public,”- William Ruto
Two Principals in Kenya Kwanza, William Ruto and Musalia Mudavadi last weekend came out guns blazing, warning members of the Provincial Administration against attempts to interfere in the electoral process. The two told the administrators to keep off from being used to campaign for Azimio’s Raila Odinga.
The two spoke at separate events, warning the government officials that they must not be sucked into the battle for presidential campaigns, the elections are in a few days, August 9th. The KK Presidential Candidate Ruto triggered the onslaught against the government officials during his roadside rallies at various stopovers in counties within the North Rift, perceived to be his home turf.
’’Na Nyinyi machifu, manaibu wenu, wasaidizi wa County Commissioners na Regional Commissioners tuna-Wuonya kwamba musitumiwe na wakubwa wenu kupigia debe hao watu wengine tunao pambambana nao kwa hii kura’’.
(You Chiefs and your assistants, assistant County Commissioners and Regional Commissioners you must desist from being used by your bosses to campaign for those other people we are battling against in this general election),” warned the Deputy President.
The DP was captured on TV saying that his team was aware that in the past, government officials had been used to campaign for government-fronted projects, if you comply with those orders from your bosses, you will face the consequences if KK wins the Presidency.
“My administration will recognize and promote those who defy those orders. If anything you must strictly observe and maintain professionalism to serve members of the public,” said the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) leader. On the other hand, his running mate Rigathi Gachagua, a former career Divisional Officer (DO) told the administrators that they must not forget their place in the office is to facilitate people who are seeking to get National Identification Cards and not to dub into politics.
In Western Kenya, the ANC leader said Chiefs in Western Kenya must stay warned against taking part in campaigns and or influencing their subjects on how to cast their votes
