Waititu speaks on visiting Tanzanian witch doctor
The use of sorcery and witchcraft is common during elections.
Speaking during a service at AIPCA Church in Thika Town, Waititu publicly said he had never visited a witch doctor.
"I want to clearly state that i do not practice witchcraft and I have never consulted such services. I do not believe in the power of witchcraft. I believe in the power of God," Waititu is quoted as saying by Nairobi News.
He maintained that he won the Jubilee primaries in April by the "grace of God".
Waititu garnered 353,604 votes against 69,916 votes garnered by Kiambu Governor William Kabogo.
Kabogo later ditched the Jubilee Party and will aim to defend his seat as an Independent.
On Friday, Kabogo revealed that some politicians were using witchcraft ahead of the General Elections.
During a special interdenominational prayer meeting in Ndumberi, Kiambu County, Kabogo warned his constituents to be aware of the politicians whose actions went against Christian teachings and values.
“There are people who have turned to witchcraft in order to win the elections. Such people will eventually lose in the end,” Kabogo cautioned.
The governor's sentiments were echoed by Bishop Margaret Wangari, the founder of the Anointed Christian Fellowship.
"As the country is headed for the election, there are leaders who have turned to witchcraft, which can lead to chaos in the country. We as a clergy have come to call upon God to save our country from evil and witchcraft," Wangari said.
The use of sorcery and witchcraft is well documented in Kenya’s democracy and cases of the same have been reported in all parts of the country; especially during the electioneering period.
