Embattled Kitui Governor H.E Charity is not taking anything by chance over a looming impeachment debate in the county assembly.
It has been established that the Governor together with more than 17 MCAs congregated overnight at Ngilu’s Ithookwe home on friday at 10pm. The aim of the meeting was to lobby support for Ngilu to survive the impending impeachment motion on Monday.
Of the 17 MCAs, 12 were from NARC, 2 from Wiper Party and 3 Independent MCAs.
The MCAs included Hons. James Musyoka alias Katimba- Kiomo Kyethani Ward, Hon Masaku – Mutomo Kibwea Ward, Mary Philma – Mwingi Central Ward, Ndisya Lusa – Kanyangi Ward and Kasee Musya alias Ben10 – Kisasi Ward.
The meeting was addressed by Gov. Ngilu, Hon. Nganga and Hon. Kasee. Hon. Kasee assured Ngilu that he would try to buy more MCAs and promised to shoot down the motion once it is tabled in the house. There are claims that those present cited Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka as the stumbling block to Kitui County’s development.
With the dust almost settling after a turbulent day for former Majority leader in the national assembly Aden Duale after his removal from the lucrative Position, residents from his home turf in Garissa county have emerged to give their opinion on their representative’s tribulations.

Detectives have arrested a 42-year-old man linked to the death of a woman whose decomposing dismembered body was discovered hidden in a sack inside the compound of a primary school four days ago.
David Kariuki the suspected killer of the dismembered body found at tumaini primary school grounds in Umoja, Nairobi has been arrested by detectives.
Detectives from Directorate of Criminal investigation (DCI) nabbed David Migwi Kariuki at a house where he had moved after the heinous act of allegedly killing 36-year-old Penninah Wairimu Njeri.
The body of the woman was found inside the compound of Tumaini Primary School playground in Umoja estate.
The residents were attracted by a foul smell that was emanating from the institution and they decided to check out.
The detectives had linked the murder to a house at the estate where the suspect had moved after keeping the body for several days and only disposed them after the odour became unbearable.
According to DCI on April 27, 2019, the same suspect was captured on CCTV walking out of Green Club along Latema Road in Nairobi CBD with a lady, a few hours before the dismembered body parts of a woman were found dumped in different locations.
The head, arms and legs had been dumped at Umoja dumpsite and torso later found at Landhies road.
DCI added the DNA analysis on the body parts matched that of the woman he had walked with from the club.
“Following the discovery of dismembered body parts of a monstrously murdered woman at Tumaini primary school playground in Umoja two on May 31, 2020 the suspect; 42-year-old David Migwi Kariuki has been arrested by DCI detectives at a house he had moved after the heinous act. The suspect disappeared and has been on the run until today when DCI officers pounced on him,’’ said the DCI in a tweet on Thursday.
The suspect has been placed in custody pending arraignment while forensic examination of the recovered body parts to reveal her identity is being undertaken.
A firm associated to National Assembly majority leader Hon. Aden Duale is at the center of discussion over the state of the roads in Busia County.
Gabal contractor is being accused of abandoning madende-Buyofu road which is under construction making it impassable to both vehicles and other road users.
Residents of Madende are now calling on their area MP John Sakwa Bunyasi to intervene and ensure that the road is completed.
The residents say that despite the Treasury paying hundreds of millions to the contractor, no work has been done on the road.
They have threatened to demonstrate and kick the contractor out of Busia if he is unable to continue with the job. ” We demand that light is shade on this matter because from the look of things the contractor seems to have eaten our money”, Benson Oruma said.
But in a quick rejoinder an aide to Hon. Bunyasi defended the contractor saying that after being contacted the contractor assured the area MP that work will resume immediately the rains are over.
He asked the residents to be calm as Bunyasi has promised to engage the contractor to see that the works commences as soon as the rains subsidizes.

Revenue collectors in Busia county are at loggerheads with Governor Sospeter Ojaamong over collection of County revenue during this Covid-19 pandemic period.
The officers who seem to have defied orders from their boss to stop collecting revenue from public service vehicles continue going about with their business as usual in points such as Tanaka within Busia Municipality and in Nambale town.
In his earlier directive two weeks ago, the governor said he saw absolutely no sense of continuing to tax matatus during this hard economic times occasioned by the pandemic.
“I am asking them to stop collecting money from matatus with immediate effect starting now. No government is interested in collecting taxes during this period because almost all businesses have been severely affected. Our focus now is to fight the Coronavirus and not collecting taxes,” the governor had stated two weeks ago.
But the revenue collectors could hear non of it hence defying the Governor and continue taking Ksh. 80 from every matatu that enters Busia town and a similar amount on matatus that exit Busia county via Busia Mumias road in Nambale town.
The matatu operators are now questioning how junior officers can defy the governor’s directives saying they expected them to do as the directed and not to continue with their usual harassment.
“it’s unfortunate that we are still being taxed. Where is this money being taken to and yet revenue offices were closed because of Coronavirus?” David Omondi a matatu driver asked.
A the same time Ombati Ojwang and Vincent Osundwa, have accused the county government of being quick to collect tax from them but instead provide them with poor services.
“What do they use the taxes for because even if you look at the Busia bus stage it’s in pathetic state. It is full of water and nobody bothers to renovate it”, asked Ombati.
Madagascan President Andry Rajoelina has officially launched a medicine he believes can prevent and cure patients suffering from COVID-19.
Developed by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research and branded COVID Organics, President Rajaolina presented the so-called remedy to the press on Monday. It contains Artemisia, a plant cultivated on the Big Island to fight against malaria.
“All trials and tests have been conducted and its effectiveness in reducing the elimination of symptoms has been proven for the treatment of patients with COVID-19 in Madagascar,” the president said.
A presidential decree said COVID-organics is mandatory for children returning to school on Wednesday. President Rajaolina said Monday that it had cured two COVID-19 cases.
“The Covid-Organics will be distributed free of charge to our most vulnerable compatriots and sold at very low prices to others. All profits will be donated to IMRA to finance scientific research,” the president wrote on Twitter..
“I’m convinced that, in fact history will prove us, but today there are already two cases that have been cured with the Covid-organics, but we’ll actually see what happens next.”
“Covid Organics will be used in profilaxis, i.e. preventive, but clinical observations have shown a trend towards its effectiveness in curative, other clinical studies are currently underway,” he stressed at the launch.
The president has previously made claims about herbal remedies despite scientific opinion that there is currently no cure for COVID-19 and that any experimental formula should be rigorously tested to see if it is safe and effective.
As of April 22, Madagascar’s case stats stood at 121 cases of which 44 had recovered with no deaths.
A worrying trend of cyberbullying targeting women is in the increase as Actress Nyasuguta becomes the latest target.
The vitimbi actress whose real names are Eunice Wambui has been lately accused of allegedly been arrested and detained at Kasarani Police station. Our sources have however found out that the allegations are untrue and only meant to mudslinging on her reputation. These and other falseful allegations regarding her business ventures have been made merely to taint on her image and dim her ambitions.
This is a worrying trend in our current society since it has now turned to be the modus oparandi of those envying hardworking and ambitious ladies in our society.
According to a Nairobi based counselor, the trend may lead to great damages to our society . Its just a month ago since fellow businesswomen and media personality Betty Kyalo was subjected to such grave allegations which also were eventually discovered to be untrue.
Worse of all is that the said allegations are mainly being perpetuated by individuals mainly to undermine their achievements.
The threats of sexual violence which British author, Caroline Criado-Perez received online following her campaign for a woman to be featured on British bank notes has highlighted the prevalence of gender-based bullying across social media.
Facebook was forced to change its policies in May 2019 after thousands complained about the posting of material which portrayed violence against women in a positive way on the site.
Such trends should be shunned in our society to avoid media being used as a tool to undermine the ability of hardworking citizens.
We don’t want future generations of women to have to put up with this, so our government has to double its efforts in championing for a more positive social and legal representation of women.
Actor Nyasuguta has already started a legal process to press for an apology and possible compesation due to damages caused by the allegations printed in one of Kenya’s leading newspapers.
