Festus Kithinji, Meru MCA candidate who went viral for blasting voters for failing him says he used HELB loans to finance his campaigns.

That did not matter to voters as he still failed.

Kithinji who was eyeing the Mbeu Ward MCA seat under a Wiper ticket, says he used all his savings on campaigns.

He said how he felt played after losing the position which he had saved for even using his HELB funds after starting his political career three years ago.

He says his accounts are currently reading zero.

"I have utilised all my resources, I've been saving, even my HELB, since I was in campus, saving for this election," he said.

He said that he felt cheated as he was leading in almost all the opinion polls but it did not reflect on the ballot.

"I was leading according to the opinion polls, but last minute you just decide to give somebody because of money, that is unfair to me."

Adding;

"As I stand here, my account reads zero, I put all my efforts there thinking you are giving me this, you people are liers, why did you lie to me, calling me mheshimiwa, yet you knew you will never give me your votes,"  he said.

He was also bitter that some polling stations did not secure even a single vote for him with others telling him that 2027 will be better.

"2027 will be better, better in which way, people will come with money and I can't promise I will have enough money for you people."

He said he is contemplating quitting politics and people should not call him at any event.
