Cs Malonza in a recent event on Friday, 1st March 2024, while distributing relief food to over 25,000 locals across Ngomeni, Tseikuru, Kyuso, Tharaka, and Mumoni wards in Mwingi North Constituency, accused Dr Irene Kasalu of inciting residents to reject relief food, claiming residents doesn’t need food.
