Kitui’s female governor candidate Charity Ngilu has expressed confidence in IEBC’s capacity to conduct free, fair and credible General Election slated for tomorrow.
Speaking to journalists in her Ithookwe home, the narc Party leader felt the electoral agency was well prepared despite the numerous external interferences it faced in the recent past.
“Though IEBC has been through a lot of political pressure besides the unfortunate killing of its Director of ICT Chris Musando a fortnight ago, I am still optimistic they will accord Kenyans a superb opportunity to express their democratic will on August 8th,” she noted.
Calling for peaceful polls, the former Land CS further urged the electorate to turn out in their numbers and vote out the Jubilee administration led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and deputy William Ruto.
It is crystal clear, she said, that the citizenry has had enough of UhuRuto’s maladministration and as such the ruling coalition must concede that it failed this country and do the honorable thing – hand the reins over to NASA.
“Uhuru and Ruto should read the writing on the wall and respect the will of Kenyans who will doubtlessly vote for the National Super Alliance’s Raila Odinga – Kalonzo Musyoka duo as the next executive,” she maintained.
Asked whether she felt the quashed lands docket graft case will weigh down on her chances to become the second Governor of Kitui, Ngilu said she did not believe so.
“The residents know the case was fabricated to get rid of me for persistently piling pressure on Jubilee but the big fish were not amused. My incessant push for the State to deliver on its 2013 promises to Kenyans only saw me kicked out and painted as being corrupt though such is bygone,” she noted.
Ms Ngilu as well warned her rivals incumbent Governor Julius Malombe and Senator David Musila to brace for a resounding defeat owing to her being “the Kitui people’s choice of next county boss.”
She said it was now evident that the residents want her at the county helm thanks to her previous track records as Kitui Central MP and minister for health and water among other public offices she held.
“The great people of Kitui know that I am a performer and a tested leader who is devoted to bring about the kind of socioeconomic transformation they yearn for,” she pointed out.
Ngilu beseeched the locals to vote for her en masse and reiterated her commitment to ensure that the electorate of Kitui will never regret granting her the crucial job.
