Transport Secretary General (CAS) Wavinya Ndeti is now ready to clash with UDA Chairman Johnson Muthama for the Machakos governorship in the August elections following his official resignation today.
Ndeti, known for her slogan “Yaliyo Ndwele Sipite”, says she is ready to join politics after helping the Ministry of Transport move forward and improve the country’s economic situation.
In her remarks after resigning from her post at CAS, Ndeti said it was her time to serve the people of Machakos.
“My dream is to serve my Machakos people to make the most of their natural and creative resources. I am ready to take Machakos to another level,” she said.
Ndeti, who had been a CAS for two years, resigned a few days after Chief of Public Service Joseph Kinyua issued a notice outlining the resignation deadlines for public servants applying for elected positions.
All public servants vying for elected office in the upcoming elections are expected to resign by Wednesday next week.
Shw initially ran for the coveted post in 2013 and 2017 but was defeated by Governor Alfred Mutua who announced his intention to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Apart from Muthama, Ndeti will also face Nzioka Waita, Machakos County Speaker Florence Mwangangi and Mavoko MP Patrick Makau.
