Presidential hopeful Abduba Dida is one who don’t apologize on what he says where and when he says it.
Dida who was termed the candidate who brought humour to the otherwise ‘no laughs’ elections in 2013, threw shade at Chebukati on Tuesday, May 23, for not paying enough attention to the activities in his office.
“When I presented my signatures to IEBC last night, there were women who were naked. My daughter asked me ‘daddy, how come there are so many naked women’?,” Dida said during a meeting organised by IEBC for presidential aspirants at Nairobi Safari Club.
The former high school literature teacher asked the chairman to step up and check what is happening around his office.
But he did not end there. Dida also told Chebukati not to undermine the number of independent candidates who are seeking country’s highest office. He noted that Kenyans were tired of the current crop of leader, making them to vie without affiliation to any political parties.
“[The fact that there are 4,000 independent candidates] is a good indication we are not happy with the current leadership. If your father has failed you, it is your responsibility to say, ‘Dad, go and rest’,” he said.
Adding: “There are many aspirants who have gone independent but never undermine a potential leader. God is in charge. If everybody hates you…hate won’t decrease anything…if the citizens are wajanja, wajanja (crafty), God will bring a leader who is mjanja raised to power 6.”
The then little known newcomer who beat more seasoned politicians like Martha Karua and Paul Muite in the last presidential race, described Nasa’s threat to boycott the upcoming polls as monkey business and asked Chebukati to take great care ahead of the general election on August 8.
