Wavinya snubs gubernatorial debate and Twitter snaps
Machakos candidate Wavinya Ndeti on Sunday ignored the county’s gubernatorial TV debate hosted by a local station.
Instead, Ms Ndeti was on social media sharing updates of a local tournament, prompting Twitter users to seeks answers for the snub.
The debate was hosted and moderated by Citizen TV’s Anne Kiguta who stated that all the four candidates had been invited.
Machakos governor Alfred Mutua and Jubilee Party candidate Lemmy Muia were the only ones who showed up for the debate. Independent candidate Bernard Kiala and Wiper’s Ms Ndeti were a no show.
Ms Ndeti has in the past been the subject of memes after she corrupted a famous Swahili proverb.
Her other interview with Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange too became an internet sensation, with users observing that she had called the host’s name many times during the interview.
Here are reaction to the debate that Ndeti snubbed.
Wavinya playing safe not attending intrusive debates, hoping to ride on a wave. Very unfortunate way of thinking #MachakosDebate

Muya seems to agree with Dr Mutua on every aspect. Now the question is why is he running? He seems confused or paid to run #MachakosDebate
