Voters in the Kitui West Constituency of Kitui County have been called upon to vote for Francis Mwanzia Nyenze’s widow Edith Vethi Nyenze during the area’s parliamentary seat by-elections on March 26, 2018 as a way of appreciating the exemplary services to them by her late husband.
The call was made by a former councillor with the Kitui Municipal Council Jackson Kyola Malombe. “Please I urge the voters in the Kitui West Constituency to vote for Edith Nyenze during the by-elections just to appreciate all the goodies that were done for us by her late husband during his leadership terms as our Member of Parliament in 1997 to 2002 and 2013 to 2017,” Malombe said.
Nyenze died of colon cancer complications on December 6, 2017 at the age of 60 years. Malombe also asked the Wiper Democratic Movement’s candidates who lost to Nyenze’s widow in the party’s ticket nominations to support her in her campaigns to assist her to win the MP seat.
Edith is vying on a Wiper Democratic Movement’s ticket where she is battling it out with a total of four rivals-all men. Malombe at the same time called upon the Kitui County government to provide the Kitui County’s residents with seeds for the current planting season in the region.
He also highly congratulated Kitui County Governor Charity Kaluki Ngilu for having been declared the the Kitui County gubernatorial seat’s bonafide winner during the Kenya’s August 8, 2017 general elections by the Milimani High Court in Nairobi on Friday, March 2, 2018.
Ngilu’s victory had been opposed through a court petition by her predecessor, Dr. Julius Makau Malombe.
The politician was speaking to hundreds of mourners during the burial of 54 years old James Muthui Nguli who was laid to rest at his Kathuma village home in Maseki Sub-Location, Mutulu Location of Matinyani District in Kitui County on Saturday, March 3, 2018.
The late Nguli was until his death an employee of the Sarova Group of Hotels in Nairobi.
