Businessman Dan Mule has backed former Transport and Infrastructure Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS)Wavinya Ndeti in her quest to be elected area governor during the upcoming polls.
Ndeti received a Wiper Party direct nomination ticket in April to run for the Machakos Governor seat in the August 9th General election and Mule says the former Kathiani member of parliament is up to the task should her bid go through.
“Wavinya is a seasoned politician with vast experience and in 2017 she performed overwhelmingly well because people trusted her leadership and they still do.Of all the contestants for Machakos governorship she is the most suitable for the position owing to her manifesto which she has highlighted well.She has done well in a demanding Transport ministry and this will be key to her success once elected” noted Mule.
Mule who formerly served as FKF premier league side AFC Leopards chairman said Ndeti is ready to take Machakos to the next level by offering servant oriented leadership and fully exploit people’s natural and creative resources.
“Wavinya is aware of the challenges Machakos people face and was ready to face them head-on if elected the county chief.She is ready to transform the county into a model of excellence in governance and economic prosperity” added Mule
Wavinya served in the Ministry of Transport for a period of 2 years, after being appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta in January 2020.
Before her appointment as CAS, she was the chair of Governing Council, Kenya Water Institute for a year.
She first contested for the Machakos Governor’s seat in 2013 and 2017 where she lost to Governor Alfred Mutua.
Others battling out for the position are former State House Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita (Chama Cha Uzalendo (CCU)), Deputy Governor Francis Maliti (Maendeleo Chap Chap), and former Senator Johnson Muthama (UDA).
