The county officials also intensified Ngilu’s calls on the Kitui Electorate and the entire Kamba Community to rally behind Azimio La Umoja’s presidential candidate Raila Odinga in his march to State House.

“Our Governor has shown us the way. Raila’s quest for the presidency is unstoppable that’s why we have chosen to join him as he flexes to form the next government in order to broaden our stake at the national leadership.

“Time is ripe for Kambas to sit at the big table where national resources are shared and distributed and Raila Odinga is our express ticket,” emphasized CEC Kilonzi.


In Kyangwithya East, the cheques distribution exercise took place at Mutune, Ngenuka Nenda and Kwa Ukungu while in Kyangwithya West the beneficiary groups assembled at Mulutu, Ithiiani and Itoleka centers.

While encouraging more groups to apply for the funds, the CEC said the Sh.180 million kitty was meant to boost income generating ventures undertaken by the beneficiary groups.
