On Thursday June 23 the Kitui County Governor Dr. Julius Malombe reaffirmed his commitment in fast-tracking development in the county in a colorful ceremony hosted at Kefri Grounds in Kitui Town.
The Governor showcased and flagged five road works machineries procured by the county government in a ceremony attended by county officers, leaders and Kitui residents.
There was a scuffle minutes before the launch when a youth leader purported to be an affiliate of the opposition was flog marched out of the event unceremoniously.
Officers in full uniform harassed the youth leader hauling him out amid protest, accompanied by curious journalists and on-lookers the youth leader pleaded with the officers arguing that he had received an official invitation from the county minister in-charge of Lands and Infrastructure.
His pleas fell on deaf ears as the officers shouted “ Hata Malombe mwambie tumekataa!” throwing him out of the venue.
