In addition,Wambua lamented on Ngilu’s ignorance of not seeking advices from other elected leaders adding that’s why the county is in such messy and unpleasant state now.
‘If only Governor Ngilu sought good advice on the best investments to pursue eg end to end ventures like supporting farmers to grow cotton, revive ginneries and produce garments we would be in a better place,’ exclaimed Wambua.
“The Governor should realize this county is for us all not hers alone. All elected leaders must put their input especially on management of resources, Kiio further stated.
