  Former Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu has assured voters that she will put an end to the perennial water shortage in Kitui County if she will be elected governor next year.

   Mama Rainbow, as she is called by her NARC supporters, hopes to deploy her checkered experience in government to reign in on water and food crises in her county which is classified as an Arid and Semi-Arid Land (ASAL) and thus prone to frequent drought.

   The one time Water Minister also wants to empower women and youth whom she argues have been ignored by Governor Julius Malombe administration.


   Ms. Ngilu’s remarks come hot on the heels of calls for her to abandon the gubernatorial race by a section of leaders from her political bedrock. Two MPs Francis Nyenze (Kitui West) and Charles Nyamai (Kitui Rural) urged Ngilu to instead consider the senatorial race which she lost to David Musila in 2013. They also want her to back Senator Musila for the governor's seat.The two MPs promised to campaign for Ms. Ngilu to clinch the senator seat.
   But for the avoidance of doubt, Ms. Ngilu steered clear of the “advice” to abandon her gubernatorial dreams and assured her supporters she will go all the way to the tape.

   “I am the best candidate for this job. I pray for your support so that we can secure this seat to liberate our people especially the women from problems, “said the former Kitui Central MP.
   She was speaking at Kimangao Parish in Mwingi North Constituency during a fund drive for the Catholic Women Association. The area MP John Munuve and his rival John Makau sharply differed in the church. Ms. Ngilu, on her part, advised two to avoid squabbles and instead embrace peaceful vote hunt:  “As a seasoned politician I want to advise you to be humble because this seat belongs to the people. Embrace peace and do campaigns based on issues of service delivery.”
