In the highly anticipated general elections of 2022, uncertainty surrounding succession politics is gradually coming to a close. Kitui county is one of the counties where there will be very stiff competition. Former Governor Malombe, Former Senator Musila have declared interest in the seat whereas Governor Ngilu is determined to retain the seat.
However, there is a new force to reckon which is gaining momentum in Kitui. The former deputy governor of Nairobi county Jonathan Mueke has declared interest in the seat and the majority of the youth now declare it time for a change. Mueke is inclining towards the deputy president William Ruto for 2022 political leverage. Lucky enough Deputy President William Ruto has declared to support Mueke in his gubernatorial bid. Ruto lauded Mueke saying that “I want to thank this young man called ‘Mueke,huyu muungwana sio viongozi wengi wa kiwango yake wanaeza kusimama na hustler nation wakati kama huu wa vitisho na intimidation.” Ruto also boldly told him that, “Young man you’re going very far, it is not simple and I will stand with you because I have seen a courageous leader.”
Ruto confessed that for one to deal with the challenges of Kitui, one needs to be an intelligent and courageous person and that’s what Mueke is and urged him to trust in God and the people of Kitui and not to fear anything despite the stumbling blocks ahead of him. The second in command assured Mueke that he will help him to bring Kitui out of tribal lines and bring more development to the grassroots residents. Do you support Mueke’s ambition to transform Kitui? Kindly leave a comment.
