Former Machakos gubernatorial hopeful Wavinya Ndeti has been cautioned against over-celebrating her recent court victory against the county Governor Alfred Mutua.
This follows the former Kathiani lawmaker's successful appeal against Mutua's August 8 re-election after the Court of Appeal on Friday quashed an earlier High Court validation of the county chief's re-election.
Ndeti took to the streets after the ruling to celebrate her win, after sending a message to the governor to not challenge the ruling at the Supreme Court but face her in a re-run, remarks that have been faulted political analyst Ambrose Weda.
Speaking on KBC English Service Wednesday, Weda termed Ndeti as overexcited after the case outcome, advising her to handle the outcome in a more sober way as the Governor had in his initial High Court victory.
''She should handle it in a different way. This yapping is not good as even Mutua did not do such when the High Court ruled in his favor,'' said Weda who doubles up as a High Court advocate.
He noted that the blow will not deter Mutua's ambitions, claiming that apart from retaining his seat, he might go ahead to win the Presidency in 2022.
''Mutua is a presidential material and Wavinya should not expect to beat him. She should just wait for 2022,'' added the commentator.
