Larger Mwingi Wiper politician Eng. Sammy Munyithya, who has been steadily winning hearts and minds in the constituency is the Wiper Pointman in Kivou Ward 2022, political pundits have told COUNTY DIARY.
The politician, who has been hobnobbing with Wiper leader H.E Kalonzo Musyoka and Kitui Strongman Gideon Mulyungi in the recent weeks – could be on his way to the helm of the third largest ward in the Constituency.
Recently, Hon. Sammy Munyithya stole the limelight at Kalonzo Musyoka Foundation (KMF) when he flagged off what he terms as “the little we can Covid-19 donations”, at the KMF headquarters in Nairobi last month.

This is not to mention his free and subsidized clinics to Mwingi Central which he has been carrying out in tandem with MP Gideon Mulyungi and the County Government of Kitui.
“He is has been on the frontline since five years ago helping his residents with the little stipends he can. His cohorts focus on women, youth and solving perennial water problems in the semi-arid area” said a confidant speaking to COUNTY DIARY.
But it is Sammy Munyithya’s escalated support to youth sports clubs across Kivou Ward that is attracting massive grassroots support in Kivou Ward, this to the chagrin of the incumbent MCA and his diehards.
Through Sammy Cup, more than 30 youth clubs now spot brand new uniforms kits, new balls including cash stipends.
“Sammy has supported us with cash towards our Facemasks project and has promised to make Sammy Cup an annual event”said MJS Football Club official speaking to COUNTY DIARY this afternoon.
