Nguu/Masumba Ward residents in Makueni County go to the polls tomorrow to elect a new MCA.
The seat fell vacant following the death of the immediate former MCA Harrison Ngui through a tragic road crash on Mombasa highway.
Three politician Timothy Maneno (Independent), Eshiio Mwaiwa (Wiper) and Daniel Kivuva Masika (UDA) are battling for the seat
The last days of the campaign trail were characterized by accusations and counter accusations over alleged electoral malpractices.
Youthful Wakili Mwengi Mutuse who is leading the Independent candidate’s brigade accused Wiper of using the provincial administration to mobilize voters to back its candidate.
In a terse protest note to IEBC Mutuse called for the disqualification of the Kalonzo Musyoka led Wiper party candidate claiming the party continued with campaigns hours after the official deadline.
“IEBC is an independent institution and should take appropriate action and disqualify the Wiper candidate”,charged Mutuse.
However Wiper brigade dismissed the allegations and excuded confidence of winning back the seat which was won by the late Ngui in the 2017 general election.
The ball is now in the hands of the more than 11,000 registered voters who troop to the 32 polling stations tomorrow morning to cast their votes to pick their preferred candidate.
