Machakos governor Alfred Mutua now wants the International Criminal Court to take action on Wiper Gubernatorial candidate Wavinya Ndeti.

In a letter dated 30 June 2017, Mr. Mutua wants the International Court to closely monitor and act accordingly on Ms. Ndeti who had earlier made utterances with regards to public looting in his government.

Ms. Ndeti had earlier written to the Inspector General of the Police claiming that there is a plot to burn government property in his office to conceal corrupt doings.

"It is common knowledge now that out of various reports from the Office of the Auditor General and active investigations by EACC...there has been wanton looting of public resources in Machakos County government.”

“Information was passed to me yesterday there is a pot to burn down sections of the Government headquarters between the 5 and 8 of July 2017 so as to destroy financial and procurement records as part of a wider scheme to cover up the said economic crimes,” Wavinya Ndeti’s letter read.

Mr. Mutua has since rubbished off the claims saying that the Machakos gubernatorial candidate is trying to gain political mileage to win in the upcoming elections.

In his letter, addressed to the Deputy Inspector General’s Office, he termed the claims as “derisive, absurd and farfetched.”

He added that his dealings have been above board, hence has nothing to hide.

"In regard to integrity, I am the only governor to have invited the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to assist in establishing an ethical governance system in the county.”

Besides reporting Ms. Ndeti to ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, Mutua also wants the National Cohesion and Integration Commission chairperson Francis ole Kaparo and IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati to act on Ms. Ndeti’s utterances which the governor says have the potency of sparking violence ahread of the elections.

"Arson, especially in regard to government property, is clearly an act of domestic terrorism, whose sole aim is to create fear and despondency among the peaceful citizens of Kenya. It is an act of civil provocation to strife and unrest, reminiscent of the 2007 Election violence,” part of the letter read.

The two have been in recent weeks engaged in a war of words as they both seek to claim the Machakos governor seat under the Wiper party in the August 8 election.
