Tala Ward MCA aspirant Jackson Ndaka found his name missing from the Wiper Party ballot papers this morning despite having paid the requisite fees. The aspirant, who does not see eye-to-eye with Matungulu MP Stephen Mule, accused the legislator of allegedly interfering with the nomination process.
Mr Ndaka claims that the MP bought a direct nomination to his rival Boniface Muisyo for the ticket. "I want to tell Mr Mule to keep off the nominations of Tala Ward. I know he bought the ticket for his close ally whom I'm battling for the ticket," said the aspirant.
He threatened to leave the party whereby he blasted the party for issuing tickets to some aspirants without nominations. However, Mr Mule, in a phone interview dismissed the allegations saying that he is not interested in MCA's seat, and that the aspirant should complain to the party.
"I know nothing about the allegations by Mr Ndaka. I am defending my MP seat, furthermore, he should complain to the party instead of yelling around," said Mr Mule.
