Nguu/ Masumba has finally decided. According to Dennis Itumbi, the preliminary results reveal that Timothy Maneno who is an independent candidate has finally taken the lead by garnering 2,894 votes which is 43% of the total votes. Daniel Musau the UDA candidate got 2,223 and the Wiper candidate got 1,601 votes which is 24%
However, after the huge blow in Makueni County, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has made a statement. He said they take this early opportunity to congratulate Timothy Maneno on winning the Nguu/Masumba Ward seat on an independent ticket. He also thanked the Wiper and UDA candidates by saying that the two had put up a great fight although they finally lost.
Kalonzo added that the people of Nguu have finally spoken through the ballot and their decision must be honoured. He added that the violence that was witnessed in some sections of the ward was unnecessary and against the Wiper ideals and ethos. However, he stated that this does not deter their resolve to take the leadership of this country and deal a deathly blow to corruption once and for all.
