Mind your own business, Jubilee MP tells Waititu

Nairobi - A Jubilee Coalition MP has told Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu to mind his own business.
Embakasi North MP James Mwangi told Waititu to stick to his own business and Kiambu County politics instead of meddling in Nairobi County business.
Mwangi was referring to Waititu's comments pushing for Eugene Wamalwa to be the Jubilee candidate for the Nairobi Governor's seat.
He stated that Nairobi was not a place for political aliens to assert themselves and asked Waititu and Wamalwa to look elsewhere.
" There is no problem with our brother Waititu and Wamalwa but we insist that Nairobi is not the place to come and declare your status like there is no people here who can vie for these positions," he said.
He urged Wamalwa to seek the opinions of Nairobians first before barging into a race he has no surety of winning.
" I ask that our brother Wamalwa come forward and declare his candidacy and then Nairobians decide. This matter of people endorsing others will not be welcomed," he added.
Waitutu in a rejoinder though, stated that those MPs against Wamalwa's candidacy were insecure.
" They are insecure if they think that by making noise they will stop Wamalwa from competing for the seat. They must wait and see what the electorate says," he stated.
The Wamalwa candidacy has thus far been the highlight of the week for the Jubilee Coalition, however, the CS himself has yet to comment on the rumours.
