For a period of time now, Kitui county Governor Charity Ngilu has been in a war of words with Deputy President William Ruto and his allies. They have been tearing each other apart mercilessly especially when it comes to land grabbing cases and others but that wasn't the case today, as one of Ruto's allies known as David Ndii jumped into the rescue of Charity Ngilu.
After Mutemi Wa Kiama had criticized the move by Charity Ngilu of procuring trucks that will help livestock farmers, David Ndii came out to defend Ngilu by explaining her latest move. "Abattoirs do not add value to livestock. Slaughter fee is <1% of final value of meat. And once an animal is slaughtered you have perishable product with very high inventory cost. There’s no business case for an abattoir in Kitui. NGO people should stick to their lanes." Tweeted David Ndii.
He went on to say that, "What do you think is better value getting animals to market cheaper and in better condition, or slaughtering in Kitui and adding cost of refrigerated transport?"
