Katoo ole Metito (UDA) met the people of Kimana on Thursday at the home of nominated MCA Jackeline Lalaito, who officially defected from governor Joseph Lenku’s team of ODM.

At the home of MCA Lalaito, Katoo urged the people to support him in the coming general election so that he can bring desired changes in his administration.

“We have wasted five good years under governor Lenku. If you elect me, I will use my management skills to turn around our economy in this county,” said Katoo.

Nominated MCA Yvonne Tonkei, who also spoke in the meeting, welcomed MCA Lalaito along with her husband, John Lalaito, to UDA.

Nkedianye, while addressing a rally in Kimana, assured the people that he will provide the leadership needed to deliver their priorities.

The former governor was accompanied by Kajiado South parliamentary aspirant, Bishop John Singaru, James Kasaine MCA aspirant Kimana Ward, and James Lomunyak MCA aspirant Kuku ward.
