In light of recent events that seem to be positioning governor Charity Ngilu as a better choice in the larger Ukambani region , the Wiper Democratic Movement party is a worried house.
The current high national and global ranking of H.E Ngilu is giving Wiper some sleepless nights. This has left many wondering whether governor Ngilu is trying to kill two birds with one stone.
The governor’s brainchild KICOTEC has received international recognition for its efforts in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Ngilu has also stepped up efforts to combat the pandemic in Kitui through provision of free face masks for Kitui residents. Her administration recently set up hand-washing points in Kitui town to facilitate observation of clean hands and regular sanitization for its residents.
According to many, she is elusively gaining an upper hand against other gubernatorial contestants back at home and also casting a blinding shadow above Kalonzo’s Wiper party. Wiper has enjoyed massive support from the extended Ukambani region since its formation and Ngilu’s rise is obviously an unwelcome twist of events.
The Wiper Party Leader,Kalonzo Musyoka is rumoured to have tried covering it up with a press statement, but still the Shadow refuses to disappear.
It is expected that Wiper will do something in the region of Ukambani from next week as far as the COVID-19 is concerned. This might include procurement of face masks from KICOTEC and donating the same publicly.
