A parliamentary aspirant in Kitui County has called for peaceful campaigns ahead of the 2017 general elections.

Mwingi Central constituency National Rainbow coalition (Narc) hopeful Julius Muinde Mutukaa urged contestants in the area to avoid chaotic and abusive politics.

He lamented that some contestants especially those in the Wiper party were fueling enmity against their opponents and warned that the Narc party will take advantage of the ongoing wrangles within the Wiper party to grab political seats in Kitui County.

Mr Mutukaa was speaking to the press after presiding over a Diocesan Harambee for Mwingi Catholic Parish on Sunday, October 9, 2016.

“I wish to urge all the aspirants and their supporters in Mwingi Central to carry out peaceful campaigns that are free from abusive utterances and violence,” said Mutukaa.

Mr Mutukaa who is a prominent educationist and a close ally of the Narc party leader and former Lands Cabinet Secretary Ms Charity Ngilu faulted some leaders whom he said were “chest thumping” and making “disrespectful” remarks against the incumbent Joe Mutambu.

“The campaigns have not yet started but interestingly some of my aspirants are even attacking the siting MP Joe Mutambu claiming that they have already won the elections. We need to respect the incumbent and allow him finish his term,” he said.

The contest to unseat Mr Mutambu who has indicated lineage to the newly formed Jubilee party has attracted big wigs in the area with some of them engaging in scathing attacks against their opponents.

Some of the aspirants include Former Public Works ministry Permanent secretary Dr Gideon Mulyungi, Former Law society of Kenya (LSK) Erick Mutua and Former DC Musikali Mutemi who are set to scramble for the nomination ticket in the Wiper party.

Others are Mr Mutukaa (Narc), Former Governor Julius Malombe’s political advisor Charles Kyale and former Machakos School Principal Mr David Kilonzi. 

Mr Mutukaa who was accompanied by Kitui County Assembly Deputy Minority Leader and Kiomo/Kyethani ward MCA Mr Peter Mutemi used the moment to refute claims that he was being sponsored by Mr Mutambu to spoil for some Wiper candidates.

“Those propagating such claims are people led by pure malice and have no idea of who I am. I have never been supported by Joe Mutambu and they should know am in the race I will be the next MP for Mwingi Central on a Narc ticket,” he stated.

He asked his contesters to engage on issue based politics based on their manifestos and avoid spreading false allegations and onslaughts against their opponents. “Instead of wasting their time attacking others let them allow the electorate to listen to their manifestos,” said Mr Mutukaa
