The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Ki­ambu real es­tate ty­coon David Ngari, pop­u­larly known as Gakuyo, has launched his bid to run for gov­er­nor, bring­ing to five the num­ber of as­pi­rants.

In­cum­bent William Kabogo will run for re­elec­tion. Oth­ers in the con­test are Ka­bete MP Fer­di­nand Waititu, en­gi­neer Gakuru Kanyanja and Njoki Ga­thendu.

Ki­ambu needs a moral, de­vel­op­ment-con­scious leader who can ef­fi­ciently man­age resources, he said on Wed­nes­day at Kigwa con­fer­ence cen­tre.

Gakuyo said res­i­dents have com­plained about high levies and li­cence fees and the county tak­ing too long to ap­prove build­ing plans.

“It is time to change and have a good man­ager, who has been tested through his work, to lead the county,” he said.
