Barely before Madam Ngilu’s term comes to an end, intense lobbying and behind-the-scenes maneuvering to find the next governor of Kitui County have been ongoing.
Several people, most of whom are well known to the electorate have thrown their hats in the ring. The names of politicians and more so technocrats have been floated as possible candidates to face off with the incumbent Madam Ngilu come 2022.
Former Kitui Governor Julius Malombe famously known as Kyuma, Former Kitui East MP and the current ambassador of Kenya to Uganda Amb. Kiema Kilonzo, 2018 Gubernatorial candidate and former senator David Musila and Former Nairobi County’s Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke are among the politicians said to be eyeing the seat.
Other politicians rumoured to be joining the said race also include the current Kitui Senator Enoch Kiio, which rumor is subject to confirmation by the Senator.
Oh well,all that can be said to the Kitui electorate is that the world is your oyster and you can only wait to make your choice then, but for now you can only watch and learn from your mistakes and pray that you choose better next time.
