“2023 is still very far to even talk about it, the attorney general has never indicated interest to stand for election with anybody.

“He advised members of the public to be wary of what they say or post on social media or anywhere.

“What the minister needs now is to focus more on how to deliver much-needed services to the country and that is what he has been doing and will continue”.

He explained that people should not force words into the mouth of the AGF and to henceforth stop peddling such unfounded rumour that has no basis whatsoever.

Gwandu warned detractors of the minister to stay off.
