Ngilu defends Kalonzo over Alfred Mutua attacks

Former Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu has defended Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka over recent attacks aimed at him by Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua.
Last week, Mutua linked Kalonzo to land grabbing in Machakos County.
He said that Kalonzo irregularly influenced the allocation of three pieces of land to himself when he served as the country’s vice president.
The matter came up after a special audit revealed that an undetermined number of land parcels and buildings belonging to the County valued at Sh961 million did not have title deeds and were prone to grabbing or encroachment.
 was paid in a bid to provide a powerful ticket to counter and rival the Jubilee Alliance of Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto.
However, dismissed the attacks as ‘careless’ and said Mutua knew his time is up and wants to politically perish with everyone else in Ukambani.
Ngilu said.
She said the governor should respect Kalonzo and recognise him as the Ukambani political kingmaker.
Ngilu told the more than 3,000 Kitui residents who live in Nairobi at a consultative forum at Sir Yusufali Sports Club along Nairobi-Thika Highway on Sunday.
The relationship between Ngilu and Kalonzo has now come full circle with barely eight months to the 2017 elections.
The two have for long not seen eye to eye as they battled for Ukambani political supremacy.
However, their relationship have been cosy ever since Ngilu was dropped from the cabinet and it seems the long-time foes are now close friends as the former CS seeks to become the next Kitui Governor.
