The foregoing weekend has been full of political drama. But of these dramas, Aggrey Nzomo and Senator Kiio’s rat race stood out throughout the weekend. The Kitui Senator has been on the receiving end following accusations of endless trips that are not beneficial to Kitui residents.
In a whatsapp post last week, Aggrey Nzomo of NYC Kitui, flashed an itinerary of Senator Kiio. He revealed that “the senator was enroute India, Sri Lanka and would eventually attend a breastfeeding forum in Georgia”. This sparked an uproar in the social media with residents claiming that the Senator has become “a tourist” in the face of their biting problems.
On Friday evening, the Senator was accused widely on local FM stations for travelling to fight for the Uasin Gishu residents at the expense of those who elected him in Kitui.
“If Kiio goes to defend Uasin Gishu residents and their bypass road construction, who will fight for Kitui Residents being mistreated by the Chinese contractor on Kitui Kibwezi road?”, posed an online user.
Today in the morning, the Kitui Senator splashed an online rebuttal terming those attacking him on social media as “County Govt goons” without an agenda. However, Aggrey Nzomo has since rubbished the senator’s response terming it “clumsy” and without substance. He said Kitui needs “a senator who can gnaw wood and chew metal”.
“Kiio can buy off a few sympathizers to defend him and we already know them. There are those guys in this town who can do anything to get a coin for their drinking sprees, but a majority of the youths are focused”, Kiio is not doing Kitui County any justice.
