Kitui County Governor Charity Ngilu now says going forward the Kamba community must get some of the top seats so as to be at the decision-making table come 2022.
“As the Kamba community, we have been gagged a lot and told not to speak. When other tribes are fighting for the resources we want to be part of it. Where the big boys are meeting we will be inside there.” Ngilu said.
“There is no way we will be locked out and be told we will call you. We want to be in the thick of it. We want to know what is cooking inside. The country is going forward. Let us stay forward. There are seats at the top and we also want them.” She went on.
Ngilu challenged the community to be preparing since Uhuru is exiting office so as to get the top seat even if it is her noting that she was good. She further took a swipe at Deputy President William Ruto and the Wheelbarrow narrative.
“Let them stop bringing wheelbarrows here. We will not accept them. How will it go? How will it develop you? We want good health care, education, and jobs for our people. Somebody is bringing wheelbarrows and you say I don’t talk.” She added.
Ngilu was speaking in Mbooni at the funeral of Ruth Kalau Musau Mwania which was also attended by other leaders; Mbooni MP Erastus Kivasu, Makueni Majority leader Kyalo Mumo, Senator Mutula Kilonzo, and Governor Kivutha Kibwana.
Ruth Kalau was the wife to the kate Musau Mwania and Co-Wife to the Late Kavivi Musau and the Late Kakuvi Musau. She was the matriarch of the Mwania family and was mourned as generous, kind, and loving.
