Matungulu MP Stephen Mule has made sensational claims that the Machakos county government is being used by the ruling Jubilee Party to try and rig the August 8, elections.
Mr Mule who was speaking at Katheka Market said that Jubilee is in a panic mode and are trying all means to rig elections whereby he cautioned people against submitting their IDs to people claiming to be giving them loans and money for the aged.
"Last week there were some people claiming to be from the county government giving out money in exchange for IDs in the name of loans and money for the aged, we know that these are schemes of Jubilee because they are in panic mode and they are trying to use the Machakos County government," said Mr Mule.
Mr Mule further hit out at the County Director of Education for issuing a directive barring politicians from going to schools arguing that they the ones who build the classes.
"I want to tell the County Director of Education, stop issuing some directives that are baseless. If politicians are barred from going to schools, does it mean that I build a class and fail to commission it?" Asked Mr Mule.
He also urged the Machakos County government to build a public toilet at the Kinyui market because traders ease themselves behind shops.
The Matungulu legislator further pointed out that the people of Ukambani should vote a six suit just like other regions."If you go to Central, Nyanza and other regions they are voting six suit so we should also do the same and vote for Wiper in all seats," he added.
