Ngilu’s ban has had a heated debate with those for the idea and those against. Social media was not left behind in this discussion with online users supporting the ban. Hashtag #ISupportMamaNgilu #KituiCharcoalBan trended this morning on twitter
According to Kitui MCAs Ngilu’s ban is for our own benefit and that of Kitui’s future generation.
Nzambani MCA, Ruth Kyene feels that Kitui would be miles ahead if sand and charcoal ban came during Malombe’s regime.
“I stand with Governor Ngilu ground and there’s no turning back.We owe no one an apology.” Ruth Kyene says
“We will put in place strong policies and value adding legislations at the assembly to give it the legal back up required” Kyene added
Desertification is a real tragedy and a ticking time bomb awaiting explosion. It will be unfortunate for us to sit back and watch as strangers drive our future generation into the grave.
“Kitui people have been exploited enough and its time our leadership salvages the situation” Added Nzambani MCA
