A local businessman a close ally to Governor, Malombe and the former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has vehemently denied speculations that Mwingi people will support aged Musila for governorship in 2017.
Mr. Ngeana who hails from Mwingi, was speaking during a school fundraiser at Nzakame Secondary School in Kitui, he pointed out that Senator Musila has dismally performed as a Senator and so he cannot be fit for governorship.
He lauded the incumbent Governor Malombe for playing transparent politics of development and well deserving of a second chance to governorship after which he would succeed him in 2022. A statement that left the crowd bursting with laughter.
He called on Kitui people to hold on the gubernatorial seat and relinquish the seat to a fresh lad at the end of Malombe’s ten year term.
The two have been close buddies and every meeting that Governor attends, the renowned local contractor and businessman in Kitui County always gets an opportunity to speak. It’s not clear what his intentions are but clearly everything is playing out to the advantage of the incumbent governor.
Governor Julius Malombe during the same function claimed that Musila’s old age was impairing his judgment and thus he cannot be fit to hold office. He should follow suit and retire from politics like Nyiva Mwendwa (out-going Kitui County Women Rep) who is few years younger than Senator Musila.
