RE-ELECT Malombe to restore prosperity in Kitui, says Kanani

 Running mate for the Wiper party's Kitui gubernatorial aspirant, Julius Malombe, Augustine Kanani said on Friday that the key to restoring Kitui back to prosperity will be anchored on re-electing pioneer Governor Dr Julius Makau Malombe.

Kanani lamented that the county development pace had slackened and nosedived since former Governor Dr Julius Malombe lost the gubernatorial seat in 2017. Mr Kanani is a banker and economist.

He however said Kitui people had an opportunity to restore development and prosperity if Malombe was re-elected on August 9.

"Development-wise, things were turned upside down when Malombe was replaced as governor. Development stagnated across the county and up to now there is hue and cry all over," said Kanani.

He said conversely only Malombe could turn the current sorry state in Kitui around if he was voted back to office in the upcoming coming General Elections.

"It is an open secret that Malombe is a development conscious leader who ensured equitable development across our county. During his time, every corner of Kitui enjoyed a fair share of development," he added.

Kanani was addressing a campaign rally at Itivanzou trading centre in Mwingi North Sub County in Kitui County. 

Big favour

He said since he hails from the Mwingi North Sub County, Malombe had shown him a big favour and honour to area residents by picking him as the running mate.

"Kitui people will be a lucky and a happy lot if they re-elected Malombe as the county's glory will be restored. Malombe is a development workaholic and with my support as his deputy we will move Kitui to the next level," he said.

He assured Kitui people that once Malombe returns to office efforts would be made to end food insecurity and chronic famine. 

He said Malombe administration would set aside two per cent of its annual budget towards the emergency fund part of which will go to famine relief supplies. He said that would lessen the fangs of hunger during food scarcity as it was currently the case.

The designate deputy governor said to address water scarcity mega dams would be constructed in each of the 247 villages in the county. He added that medical facilities would be upgraded and be well stocked with adequate drugs and nurses.
