A section of Kitui elected leaders have demanded immediate arrest of Kitui Governor, H.E Charity Charity Ngilu over what they termed as incompetence, impunity, oppression of voters and ignorance of voter’s wants in her administration.
Led by Mwingi Central legislator, Hon Gideon Mulyungi, they said as Kitui leaders, they are disturbed as residents are suffering under Governor Ngilu’s administration.
According to Kisithe Ngilu’s administration has fully specialised on theft and graft thus affecting service delivery.
Mulyungi stated that health services especially in Mwingi level 4 hospital have been paralyzed following unpaid July and August salaries leading to doctor’s strike.
However, Mulyungi stated that Ngilu has taken advantage of division of revenue bill to hide behind it whereas other Governors have paid their workers.
The legislator also noted that Kitui does not have free medical cover as earlier stated for the Kitui County Health Insurance Cover,[kchic] is fake and money collected from it is deposited into a personal account either belonging to the Governor or somebody close to the Governor .
According to him, kchic is also meaningless as patients who have the card are mostly referred elsewhere to be scanned among other medical attention and also buy drugs outside the health facilities.
“kchic is a cash cow to put money into people’s pocket because there is no legal account for the same,‘ stated Mulyungi
Mulyungi also stated that multiagency team should hurriedly come to Kitui and arrest Ngilu over corruption allegations to salvage Kitui from the oppressing leadership.
In conclusion, Mulyungi stated that they can also take the office if Ngilu has failed.
