Kitui Gubernatorial Race Heats Up: Charity Ngilu, Dr. Makali Mulu, and Nicholas Mulila in Three-Horse Tight Race

KITUI, KENYA – The 2027 Kitui gubernatorial contest is shaping up to be a fierce three-horse race, with former governor Charity Ngilu, current Kitui Central MP Dr. Makali Mulu, and corporate leader Nicholas Mulila emerging as the leading candidates. Each contender brings a unique set of strengths to the table, promising a tightly contested battle for the county’s top seat.

Former Governor Charity Ngilu, who served from 2017 to 2022, remains a formidable candidate despite criticisms of her performance during her tenure. Known for her resilience and experience in political leadership, Ngilu is banking on her established political network and familiarity with the county’s governance to regain her former position.

Dr. Makali Mulu, the celebrated Kitui Central MP, is widely recognized for his impressive development record both at the constituency and national levels. As an esteemed economist, Mulu’s leadership has been marked by substantial infrastructure projects and socio-economic initiatives that have significantly benefited his constituents. His reputation as a development-oriented leader and policy expert gives him a competitive edge in the gubernatorial race.

Nicholas Mulila, a newcomer to the political scene, brings a fresh perspective from the private sector. With a background in corporate leadership, Mulila is touted as the candidate with the potential to bring transformative change to Kitui. His reputation as a well-networked professional and his philanthropic efforts within the church and broader community have endeared him to many. Mulila’s lack of political baggage and his vision for economic development are seen as strong points in his campaign.

The race is expected to be intensely competitive, with each candidate needing to effectively package their message and align themselves with the outgoing Governor Dr. Julius Makau Malombe’s supporters to secure an advantage. The support of Governor Malombe’s followers could prove crucial in tipping the scales in this closely contested election.

As the campaigns kick into high gear, the people of Kitui will be closely watching how each candidate positions themselves and addresses the county’s pressing issues. With their diverse backgrounds and strengths, Ngilu, Mulu, and Mulila each offer distinct visions for the future of Kitui, setting the stage for a dynamic and unpredictable race to the finish line.

The other candidates are said to have retreated to their current seats, although a lot is expected to change going forward.
