Kitui county governor Dr. Julius Malombe has named Agness Kambua as his running mate in the forthcoming general elections. Malombe will be bruising over with other gubernatorial contenders including former lands cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu and senator David Musila who ditched the wiper party to run as an independent candidate.
Malombe’s actions promise a twist as the incumbent dropped Penina Malonza as his running mate and opted for Agness Wambua a teacher by profession. Malombe says he opted for a woman in his government with the aim of empowering them into leadership
The wide thought is also seen to have majorly considered on regional balancing. Kambua who comes from the larger Mwingi will complement the efforts Dr. Malombe who comes from larger Kitui.
Malombe broke loose with his former deputy long ago due to power tussle and what was thought to be in the house in a fight from the current Senator, David Musila. Malonza has since declared her support for Musila’s candidature for 8th August 2017 polls.
