News that the Kitui County Senator David Musila will not be defending his senatorial seat seemed not exciting for a long time with very few showing interest in vying for the position but times seem to have changed and many are now wetting their appetites for the top county overseer.
Now the list for senate aspirant is growing daily attracting interest of both renown veteran leaders and fresh entrants into the political scene.
Despite the current Kenyan ambassador to Turkey Hon. Kiema Kilonzo having hinted his interest in the seat many other young ambitious gentlemen have also vowed to break some sweat for the seat.
The new faces in the scene include Enock from Kitui West, Hon. Elijah Muimi aka Ikonge also from Kitui West, Hon. Kilonzi Mwalili from Kitui East and Hon. Tata Kwoko from Mwingi West.
Although the senatorial seat first seem uncompetitive things are changing and the battle is indeed getting tighter by the day.
