Governor Ngilu Under Fire for Ejecting Moses Kuria out of Kitui BBI Rally

Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu is under sharp criticism after video footage of her directing a group of security officers and organizers of a BBI rally, held at the county, to eject Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria out of the meeting went viral.

In the video footage, Ngilu’s voice was heard directing a group of men to eject Kuria saying she won’t allow those insulting President Uhuru Kenyatta to be a party to her meeting.

ODM leader Raila Odinga interacts with Governor Ngilu during the Kitui BBI rally.

The incident has sparked uproar among a section of leaders allied to DP William Ruto and some netizens on social media who castigated the Governor for her divisive remarks.

Among the leaders who have come out to lash out at the Governor include Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi.

The MP took to social media to air out his reservation on the incident terming it unacceptable and out of order.

Sudi accused the Governor of being the most corrupt woman in Kenya saying she had no moral authority to lecture Kenyans on unity and matters about respecting the president.

“It is shameful and absurd for a whole mother like Charity Ngilu to incite the crowd against Moses Kuria. Ngilu did the unthinkable just to please the handshakers and to cover herself from the myriad of corruption allegations levelled against her.

“In fact, I dare say that Charity Ngilu is the most corrupt woman in the world especially Kenya. Why was she fired as a Minister for Lands?

“The other day she was inciting locals in Kitui to burn lorries belonging to charcoal businessmen from Mt. Kenya. She has completely no moral authority to lecture us about BBI or respecting President,” wrote Sudi on Facebook.

According to Kuria, who was at the centre of the skirmishes, the incident was a sharp contrast of what the BBI course is advocating for.

The MP, however, took to social media to announce that he had forgiven all those who manhandled him.

Kuria together with fellow Tanga Tanga leaders who had attended the meeting, including Senators Kipchumba Murkomen and Aaron Cheruiyot as well as Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa, arrived after the rally was bound to begin.

Reports have it that they found no seat allocated for them and remained adamant that they had to be given a seat close to where their fellow leaders were.

Their stern stand resulted in a push and pull that brought the rally to a standstill.

According to the Tanga Tanga leaders, it took the intervention of Kitui residents to have them accommodated at the dais.
