The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

Tharaka MP Alex Mwiru (pic­tured) has said he will sup­port Chuka Igam­bang’ombe MP Muthomi Njuki for gov­er­nor. Mwiru spoke on Wed­nes­day at Ru­bate Chuka Igam­bang’ombe con­stituency where he ac­com­pa­nied Njuki for the burial of his rel­a­tive. He urged res­i­dents to sup­port Njuki, say­ing he has the po­ten­tial to de­liver. “He has ini­ti­ated de­vel­op­ment projects in the con­stituency and if elected gov­er­nor, he will do more,” Mwiru said. He said if the Chuka com­mu­nity sup­ports the first-time MP, he will com­fort­ably win. “You should stop bick­er­ing and sup­port Njuki. He can count on the Tharaka com­mu­nity for sup­port,” Mwiru said. Njuki will run against Gov­er­nor Sa­muel Ragwa. Maara MP Kareke Mbiuki sup­ports Ragwa, while Se­na­tor Kithure Kindiki and woman rep Beatrice Nkatha sup­port Njuki’s bid.
