Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has said her commitment to serving county residents remains her priority number one until 2027.
Ngilu said she was alive to her five-pillar development agenda since she took over the reins of county leadership in 2017 for a lasting change to the social-economic welfare of residents.
Addressing the county executive meeting at Kitui’s Agricultural Training Institute (ATC), the county boss asked the officers to actively participate and be involved in bringing a long lasting solution to challenges people face.
“I want to affirm here and today that I will defend my seat in this year’s general election and I urge every one of you to stand with me in educating our people on the path we are taking in the next government,” Ngilu said.
She said that the next president should be a person who cared about people’s welfare and is ready to transform the county to the next level. She said it is only ODM leader Raila Odinga who has the qualities and capacity to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
At the same time, the governor thanked four of her cabinet executives who resigned to contest for county and parliamentary seats in the August polls.
Former Tourism cabinet executive Koki Musau, agriculture chief officer, eng James Songolo, advisers Nene Nzyuko and Nzungi Ngwele have resigned and declared interest to run for political seats.
“I thank all of those who have left my administration to run for various political seats. I wish them well,” she said.
