The Miss Machakos beauty pageant was a big farce that should not have been allowed to take place in the first place, local leaders have stated.
According to Deputy Governor Bernard Kiala, the winner was not a native of Machakos county. It is alleged that Karen Muriithi hails from Muranga county thus was not eligible to participate in the competition.
Governor Alfred Mutua wife hails from Central Kenya and word on the street is that she played a key role in ensuring the title went to her ‘native home’.
Kiala has shown interest in running for the gubernatorial seat in the forthcoming general elections. Mutua’s wife Lilian Nganga has been engaging in charitable activities in the county in a bid to win the support of the locals.
Here is what Kiala shared on social media:
Machakos Miss Tourism beauty pageant was a fraud. The winner is not a native. Name dropping doesn't make one either! pic.twitter.com/HmQsSHRJKK— Bernard Kiala (@BernardKiala) May 11, 2016
