Mrs. Kaluki Ngilu today came face to face for the first time with the man she defeated as Governor and exchanged banter at the Kitui Law Courts.
Dr Julius Malombe was making his way back to the courtroom and found himself on the path of Mrs Ngilu who proffered a handshake that Dr Malombe took thoughtfully.
Dr Malombe, who failed to grace the swearing over ceremony and declined to even turn up to officially hand-over seemed blank. The governor then asked Dr Malombe why he declined to come to hand over the office.
Ngilu: Why did you choose to bring me to court rather than come to the office and hand over?
Malombe: Never mind, I eft behind an office will a good budget and a plan
Ngilu: Why did you not handover that budget and plan you are talking about?, I thought you would also be available to advise me on issues of Kitui County as the first governor
Malombe: I’m available for you. Let us first sort out this matter(Petition)
Dr Malombe then walked into the courtroom.
The two leaders were in court for a Pre-trial conference of a petition that Dr Malombe, who finished a distant third after former Senator David Musila, has filed against Mrs Ngilu.
The case is being heard by Justice Puline Nyamweya
