Kitui county assembly Speaker race dynamics continue to change as several candidates drop their bid in support of Augustus Kyalo Muli.
Hon Fatma kasyoka, the latest aspirant to drop her bid in support of Kyalo, describes him as the best of the candidates.
“He has a genuine and deep desire to transform Kitui. He is the only candidate who can fight the monopolies that have crippled the operations of the assembly and left Kitui MCAs financially disempowered.”
Kyalo Muli is standing very tall among the remaining candidates. He is the only candidate who will take care of women issues or empowerment.
With only George Ndoto standing in his way, the battle seems almost won as most of the MCAs interviewed confirmed their support for the young and aggressive businessman.
“You might be surprised to see only 2 nominated MCAs supporting Ndoto out of the 58 MCAs,” one was quoted saying
The Speaker elections are scheduled for Wednesday 21st September after the swearing of MCAs.
It is rumoured that with the emergence of the Dubai based businessman, this has become one of the most expensive speaker elections this County has ever had.
Many conglomerates have teamed up to present different candidates with the hope of making sure that Kyalo Muli does not win in the first round and that his opponent is round 2 will be financially supported by all the other cartels to make sure he doesn’t win.
If this game plan works remains to be seen. As things stand, Kyalo Muli seems to have won the hearts of a majority of the members and hopefully this will translate into a win for him.
