MCAs allied to NGILU and KALONZO head to the Coast as their working relationship deteriorates by the day

Saturday August 11, 2018 - Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu and Wiper MCAs are headed to Mombasa in a bid to end a supremacy battle threatening to derail County business.
This comes even as Ngilu has accused the Wiper MCAs of trying to sabotage her in the quest to deliver development to Kitui residents.

The battle springs from mistrust and differences over resource allocation and general management of public affairs in the County pitting Ngilu against the majority of former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka-led Wiper Party MCAs.

The problem escalated when the MCAs rejected Ngilu’s six appointees to the municipal board, the county’s Emergency Fund Bill 2018 and County Integrated Development Plan 2018/22 on the floor of the Assembly in a span of two weeks.

“Let it be clear that if the mistrust continues, I will retreat and seek other remedies.”

“For one, I will bypass the leaders, particularly the MCAs, and reach out directly to the electorate to tell them who is derailing development in their respective wards and constituencies,” Ngilu had vowed.

It now remains to be seen if the Coastal tour will bring the two warring factions together.


  1. They are going to sort out their differences using government resources?Why can they solve it at the chamber or within Kitui county.
