Ngilu has cleared doubts on whether or not she will be among the candidates vying for the Kitui gubernatorial seat in the 2017 general elections.
Ngilu stated her firm grounds dispelling rumours that the former Lands CS would ditch her gubernatorial ambitions and instead try her hand at the senatorial position which many have claimed to be her best fit.
Former Lands Cabinet Secretary and NARC leader Charity Ngilu broke her long political silence on Sunday evening in an interview with Citizen TV.
While affirming her stand to vie for the Kitui County gubernatorial seat in the 2017 General Elections, Ngilu said since she left government office in 2015 she has been focusing on promoting her party, NARC, in the grassroots in preparation for next year’s General Election as she waits for court cases against her to wind up.
The NARC leader stated that she would use her party to seek election but noted that it was too early to say which coalition she would join.
“It’s too early to say which coalition I will join, it is time for me to sell my manifesto and ideology,” she said.
Ngilu said that issues that are dear to her heart and those that she intends to address in her party ideologies are food, water, women empowerment and education.
Commenting on her pending case, the former Lands CS told Citizen TV that her case was not thoroughly investigated before it went to court, adding that her entire case revolved around a file and that she was charged with obstruction of justice and not graft.
She further blamed cartels for her woes saying there were people who did not want to see land reforms happen in the country.
