Machakos Senatorial candidate John Mutua Katuku has called on people to vote for the NASA coalition saying that it will be the answer to majority of problems in the country. Katuku, the Peoples' Trust Party (PTP) Leader who was speaking during his campaign tour within Matungulu constituency said that the high cost of living in the country can only be solved by voting in the NASA government.
"As you know, the country is in crisis as the cost of living is very high, and the only way we can solve this is by voting in the NASA government," said the former Mwala legislator.
He added that the country is headed in the wrong direction because there is corruption everywhere.
" Uhuru and Ruto have failed to manage the nation,there is corruption everywhere, " added the former Water Minister.
Katuku further called on the residents to vote for him as he is more experienced than all other senatorial candidates. Katuku is seen as the front runner in the contest where he faces Ms Winfred Mutua (Jubilee), Jackson Kala (Wiper), Boniface Kabaka (Chama Cha Uzalendo) and Carlos Kioko (Maendeleo Chap Chap).
"I am appealing to all of you to vote for me as your next Senator because I am more experienced and well exposed than all other Senatorial candidates. I have served as Mwala MP for two terms and as an assistant minister for Finance and full Cabinet Minister for Water," he added.
He called on all leaders to campaign peacefully without spreading hate speech or words that can bring political unrest.
