Not until yesterday that we learned about a new entrant in the race for the Kitui County Women Representative, currently held by Hon Irene Kasalu.
The seat, which she won by margins during the last general elections has thus far attracted Hon Esther Kalunda Ndile, the nominated Member of County Assembly from Mutonguni Ward.
Just like Senator Wambua Kiio, Hon Kasalu is said to enjoy unwavering support across the county with both their popularity enjoying support from the most popular party across the three Ukambani regions – Wiper Movement Party.
We are unable to find out the new entrant’s party of choice at this point but rumors have it that she will go for it on Jubilee ticket.
If so, then she will most probably lose the elections as Wiper has continued to strengthen their ropes in the region and so, projected to scoop most of the main elective posts.
