Minister for Water and Irrigation Charity Kaluki Ngilu of Kenya

Ngilu was born in Mbooni, Makueni District in 1952.
Ngilu was seen as a new school member in the government, as opposed to old school members like John Michuki and President Kibaki.
On July 31, 2007, Ngilu took Ann Njogu, a protester, to a hospital after Njogu had allegedly been beaten by police.
Ngilu was then accused of helping Njogu escape the police, and she was arrested on August 2 before being released on bail.
Ngilu was re-elected to her seat from Kitui Central in the December 2007 parliamentary election.
The crisis was eventually resolved with a power-sharing agreement, and in the grand coalition Cabinet named on April 13, 2008 and sworn in on April 17, Ngilu was appointed as Minister of Water and Irrigation.

Ngilu has been a human rights crusader and she definitely understands the importance of water and sanitation and its transparent and accountable management to all but i cannot understand why she is taking almost a year to resolve a clear case of corruption, power play and selfishness in appointing the board of directors for the mombasa water and sewerage company.

You see I am not saying that Mwangu Ivuti is a better MP than Ngilu, no BUT on the same breadth, i think it is also wrong to insinuate that Ngilu is a better Mp.

WHO | Charity NgiluMrs Charity Kaluki Ngilu is the Minister of Health of Kenya.
Charity Kaluki Ngilu is currently the Minister of Health of Kenya and Commissioner at the World Health Organization.
Between her countrywide busy schedule of receiving samples of contaminated bottled water in Mandera, Kisumu and inaugurating new water boards as well as launching projects, Ngilu has made time for politics, setting adversaries on fire.
With PM and party leader having lately taken a reconciliatory stance, Ngilu remains the true face of ODM’s dissatisfaction, defiance and boldness.
And even as Kalonzo woos the Central Kenya vote, Ngilu is convinced the VP does not understand what he is getting into.
The person who would really sweat it out (even if they were to ultimately win) in a political contest between the two would be Kalonzo because apart from her influence in Kitui and the environs, Ngilu is hugely popular in her native Machakos.
It is also no secret that Ngilu has used her Health portfolio to gain immense political capital.
Many inexperienced analysts are saying that Ngilu has been inconsistent in her political stand.
Now that the elections are around the corner, Ngilu has to quickly re-invent herself.
There is no doubting the fact that what Ngilu is going for this time round is not bargaining power, but the highest price of all.
In all the chaos that is sure to follow, Ngilu is carefully positioning herself as the ideal possible compromise candidate.
Soon after the funeral, Ngilu was secretly admitted at a private clinic near Nairobi hospital where she stayed for three days.
Ngilu then took up the challenge and this has generated a lot of attention, not only because she is a woman, but because Mrs Ngilu has so far displayed that she is a force to reckon with.
Beyond mere fascination and normal ambition that comes with such an office, Ngilu is seeking to make real differences in the lives of the Kenyan people.
Initially, Ngilu was ignored by the bulk of the Akamba political leaders in her area.
The outcome of her presidential bid remains yet to be seen but by merely entering the scene, Ngilu has caused quite a stir which even if she does not give her the highest seat, might beyond doubt stamp her mark in history as the first woman in Kenya to command national support.
Though she came fifth at the end of the race to State House, Ngilu had rammed home a powerful political point that women can actually join an all-male race.
Ngilu is not the first political heroine from Ukambani to see her star dimmed by the sometimes unpredictable dynamics of Kenya politics.
Ngilu was the first woman Presidential candidate in sub-Saharan Africa.
Ngilu came out, drying her hands on an apron.
