Malombe thanked the Wiper family led by Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka for seeing potential in him and promised to deliver the Kitui seat to the people of Kitui and the party.
“I want to guarantee Wiper Party that one seat that they can take in Ukambani is that of Governor Kitui County 2022. In various polls that were done, including scientific polls, as seen in Kitui, I have led in all the polls and with huge margins,” he stated.
Malombe added that even other parties like the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party carried polls in Kitui. He was the leading candidate, and he exuded confidence that the same would be reflected after the August polls, where he would win with a considerable margin.
The former Kitui boss promised to work together with other Wiper Leaders in Kitui to ensure that he continues with the work that the incumbent has “abandoned.”
“I will not take anything for granted together with those from my county who will be given the Wiper tickets in various positions and the people of Kitui.”Malombe added.
Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka confirmed that the party made a lot of efforts to ensure that they got the best candidate to fly the Kitui Gubernatorial ticket.

Kalonzo also confirmed that he held a lengthy meeting with Ambassador Kiema and that he (Kalonzo) is happy to present Malombe to the people of Kitui to run on Wiper Ticket and is confident that he will deliver the seat.
