Kirinyaga governor candidate Anne Waiguru’s running mate Peter Ndambiri has accused NASA of plotting to delay the upcoming polls. He said on Saturday in his Ngothi village, Mwea West, that the alliance is using the courts so the August 8 election can be postponed because it is not ready. Ndamiri cited the ballot paper case in which the tender awarded to the Dubai-based Al Ghurair was cancelled. He urged voters to elect JP candidates and called for peaceful campaigns, urging tolerance. He cited as unacceptable an incident in which Tana Water Services Board director Mureith Kangara was allegedly attacked and threatended with a gun at the Sun City Hotel in Sagana on Friday night by Andrew Ngirici, the husband of Kirinyaga woman representative candidate Wangui Ngirici. “Guns are for protection not scaring others.”
