Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu on Tuesday endorsed Francis Nyenze’s daughter Edith Nyenze to replace him as Kitui West member of parliament.

Speaking during the burial of the former Minority leader in Kyondoni Village, Kitui County, Mrs Ngilu told off the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to instead use the money intended for the by-election to fund water projects.

“I have heard what Kitui West wants, Edith Nyenze you will carry this seat in your shoulder and I will campaign for you. Hiyo pesa IEBC mnataka kutumia mtupe tuwekee wananchi maji,” the former Lands CS told mourners.

While IEBC had not given out a clear plan for the by-election following the death of Mr Nyenze, it is expected that the polls agency would hold a by-election in less than six months after the death of the MP.
