The Maendeleo Chap Chap’s party leader, H.E Dr Alfred Mutua on Wednesday withdrew the party’s fronted candidate.
In his own words ,he said that their candidate was out of the race. However, the according to the IEBC, it has not received any withdrawal notice by any cleared candidate and that could only translate to the Governor’s statement of candidate’s withdrawal as just mere talk.
“We’ve not received any communication regarding candidature withdrawal, As far as we are concern all the 11 candidates are in the race, even if any of the candidate withdraws it’s too late to change ballot papers” Boya Molu, IEBC commisioner.
Oh well, what does the Governor wish to communicate, or did he get cold feet after seeing what happened in Makueni?
The by-election is set for tomorrow, 18th March 2021.
