Christopher Mwambingu is reported to have connived with the County Assembly’s speaker together with others to have his fake nomination ratified and him sworn in as MCA representing the youth.

The real nominee was blinded by fake letters allegedly written by MCA cancelling his nomination.

Fake Gazette notice Christopher Mwambingu used to secure his nomination

Residents of the county are now demanding the Mwambingu be arrested and charged with forgery and impersonation.

The real nominee for the position is one Athman Moze Msafiri and not Christopher Mwambingu who presented the fake gazette number 142 to the speaker for swearing in. The authentic gazette notice is Vol CXIX-NO 124.

It’s not clear how the speaker became a party to this major forgery but pundits blame this on ignorance and lack of information from even those who manage the county assemblies.
