Three Cabinet Secretaries have remained adamant that they will continue campaigning for the Jubilee administration despite threats of prosecution by the opposition.

Transport CS James Macharia, his Planning counterpart Mwangi Kiunjuri and Water CS Eugene Wamalwa said they are unmoved by the threats and will continue to outline achievements.

NASA principals have given DPP Keriako Tobiko an ultimatum of seven days to prosecute nine government officials, including the three CSs, for allegedly using state resources to campaign for JP.

The three, however, have said the opposition is just apprehensive of the governments numerous achievements.

They spoke on Friday at the ACK church in Kamung’ang’a, Murang’a, during the funeral of Macharia’s father.

Governor Mwangi Wairia said the opposition is unfairly targetting CSs.

He said it is impossible for them not to politick as they are drivers of Vision 2030 which relies on social, economic and political pillars, and they cannot ignore the political pillar.
