Outgoing Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu is in trouble with leaders and professionals for Publicly declaring her support for Hon David Musila of Jubilee in what has been termed as a ploy to punish Wiper boss in kitui.
In a statement released to Media, the people want Governor Ngilu to let the people of kitui decide for themselves.
KITUI SOUTH AZIMIO SUPPORTERS STATEMENT ON NGILU’S DEFIANCE ON RAILA’S DECLARATION OF DR. JULIUS MALOMBE AS THE AZIMIO GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE IN KITUI.
In his recent visit to Kitui county to drum up support for the Azimio-One Kenya alliance,HE Rt.Hon.Raila Odinga accompanied by HE Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka ,the Governor Kitui county Charity Ngilu, elected and community leaders from the region toured most of the sub counties of Kitui.
During this successful tour, AZIMIO presidential candidate Raila Odinga was wowed by the popularity of the WIPER gubernatorial candidate Dr. Malombe as witnessed in the rallies he addressed at Mutomo , Kitui and Mwingi attended by mammoth crowds. The peoples ‘ confidence in Dr. Malombe impelled Raila to publicly endorse the peoples’ preferred and most popular candidate Dr.Julius MAKAU Malombe as the Azimio-One Kenya Alliance gubernatorial candidate for Kitui County.
Hardly a fortnight after the visit, Governor Charity Ngilu returned to Kitui to endorse Jubilee’s David Musila whose candidature she had trashed saying he was a non performer during his long political tenure coupled with advanced age.
Ngilu’s conduct has caused dissatisfaction among majority of Azimio-One Kenya Alliance supporters in the county who we feel might vote against AZIMIO as protest citing Ngilu’s involvement in the gubernatorial succession politics.
During a funeral in Mwingi on Saturday, July 23, 2022, Ngilu stated categorically that she is determined to use every effort and loot she accumulated as governor to install David Musila as the governor of Kitui.
Having sensed that she is no longer a key player at the Azimio national set up lately, Ngilu has resurfaced in Kitui through Musila’s candidature to cover up her massive looting of the county coffers.
As responsible citizens of this County and country, we feel that we have a county to build and a future to protect and therefore condemn this move and call on Kitui people to reject Ngilu’s maneuvers and elect Dr. Malombe whose development as the pioneer governor we pride in.
