The Kitui county governor Hon.Charity Ngilu has asked president Uhuru Kenyatta to involve the Kamba community in his government.
Speaking during a funds drive at Mutomo, Kitui, the county boss accused the president of neglecting the ukambani region in the government, noting that the community is poorly represented in the cabinet.
“Machakos, Kitui and Makueni counties got only one Cabinet Secretary position, they have forgotten the Kamba community…” the governor lamented.
She further asked Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, who was in attendance, to convey the same message to president Uhuru when they meet to discuss the alleged ongoing eviction of the Kamba community at Mwea and Njukini schemes.
“… So when you go there, tell them that we are saying we have the right to be in that government,” Ngilu said.
Kalonzo on the other hand said that he had already called president Uhuru informing him about the scuffles at Mwea settlement scheme in Embu and Njukini area in Taita Taveta where houses have been demolished and several people who had lived on the land for decades forced to vacate the areas.
