By COUNTY DIARY.
Former Nairobi Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke had a taste of sour politics when he came face to face with Kitui supremo Charity Ngilu at the Kitui Cathedral Fund Raiser last Saturday.
Mueke who has declared interest in the Kitui Governor’s seat come 2022 to unseat Ngilu on a far-fetched and fluid youth vote found himself in strange territory as Ngilu treated him like toilet paper.
The youthful Mueke, the suave and elitist city dweller, was forced to take cover in WhatsApp glued to his phone as his comrades at arms and company quickly abandoned him and rushed to pay homage to Ngilu.
In her characteristic charm, Ngilu greeted them excitedly but did not even look at Mueke who stood lonely like a shy antelope.
“While Ngilu greeted and appreciated everyone with a wide smile, she did not even bother to look at Mueke’s direction. His friends had left him to greet Governor Ngilu”, said a Mueke ally who was present, the County diary has learnt.
“This forced Mueke to dig his face into his phone and equally ignore Ngilu in revenge”, added our mole.
Ngilu hurriedly gave her donation and vanished.
