In the past months, President Uhuru and Kitui County Governor Charity Ngilu have had a push and shove during their political careers. Times they have been a team and other times one of them has been in the opposition, but that’s how politics is all about right? They say Politicians have no permanent enemies and that could be true.
Uhuru decided to boost Kitui county with a nice gift as they launched Huduma Namba. The president directed that uniforms for all chiefs and their assistants across the country be produced by Kitui County Textile Centre (KICOTEC). The directive by the President was received by Ngilu with ululations.
“I’m gratified by the declaration by H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta today, at the launch of #HudumaNamba that henceforth, uniforms for all Chiefs and their assistants across the country will be produced by Kitui County Textile Centre (KICOTEC). We say a big thank you, Mr President,” the county boss tweeted.

Ngilu launched KICOTEC in October 2018 and the tender will be a big boost. Uhuru gave the directive during the official launch of the Huduma Namba in Masii, Machakos County.
During the launch, Uhuru lauded the move to have the Huduma Namba saying it will make applying documents easy for Kenyans as it will be a central place for each person’s details.
Interior CS Fred Matiang’i said the exercise will take 45 days. “My promise to the President is that this process will be executed with administrative precision and efficiency.
“I shall be giving the President a daily update of the number of persons whose data has been captured starting today until we complete the exercise on May 18, 2019. It is my conviction that we shall achieve the target by the set deadline,” Matiang’i said.
