Kiambu County gubernatorial candidate Ferdinand has sworn in church that he never sought the services of a witch-doctor in order to clinch the Jubilee ticket for the seat.
The Kabete MP was reacting to claims by his rival in the race, who alleged that Waititu and other candidates in Jubilee consulted services of a popular Tanzanian soothsayer in order to win in the nominations.
While addressing believers at AIPCA Church in Thika Town, Waititu picked a Bible and swore he never visited a witch doctor.
“I keep saying that I am saved as much as people doubt it. I want to clearly state that I do not practice witchcraft and that I have never consulted such services in a bid to have any of my issues sorted out. I do not believe in the power of witchcraft. I believe in the power of God,” he said.
He added: “I won the Jubilee nominations by a huge margin of 86 per cent by the grace of God. My prayer is that I win the elections by 100 per cent.”
Kiambu Governor William Kabogo who also attended the same Church service castigated Waititu and Thika Town MP Alice Ng'ang'a for playing politics in the Church.
“I want to ask the church to pray for us leaders because when we are told not to conduct politics in church we do exactly that,” said Kabogo.
