Busi­ness­man joins race for Ki­ambu gov­er­nor

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Central -

Real es­tate mag­nate David Ngari, pop­u­larly known as Gakuyo, has joined the race for Ki­ambu gov­er­nor, five months to the Ju­bilee Party pri­maries.

He says he will give in­cum­bent Wil­liam Kabogo and Ka­bete MP Fer­di­nand Waititu a run for their money. The three, Njoki Ga­thendu and Gakuru Kanyanja all want to run for gov­er­nor on the JP ticket.

Speak­ing on Satur­day in Munyu, Thika, Gakuyo said his com­peti­tors lack ser­vant lead­er­ship.

The county’s top job needs a can­di­date with sound man­age­rial skills to prop­erly man­age re­sources for eco­nomic growth, he said.

Gakuyo said his abil­ity to lead the county to pros­per­ity is ev­i­dent from the way he has led Gakuyo Real Es­tate as the CEO and Ekeza Sacco as the chair­man.

“Bad lead­er­ship has been the main rea­son why Ki­ambu has lagged be­hind in de­vel­op­ment. Ki­ambu peo­ple want change and the time is now to put the county lead­er­ship in the right hands,” he said.

Gakuyo said the fights be­tween Kabogo and Waititu have given Ki­ambu a bad name.
