The rift between Machakos governor Alfred Mutua and his deputy Bernard Kiala has widened, just days after the Senate refused to approve the latter’s impeachment.
Immediately after Senate’s decision, Mutua stripped Kiala off all duties, by taking away his labour docket.
Now yesterday, Kiala received the shock of his life when he went to his office only to find it without furniture and stationery. On arrival at around 12pm, the deputy governor was met with broken doors before he knew things were not right. His secretary was also not present, and it emerged that she may have been suspended. His immediate course of action was to call press conference, where he condemned the action terming it malicious, primitive and a big mockery.
The county secretary however explained that the office was under renovations, and they were not expecting Kiala so soon.
Many people are however seeing Alfred Mutua’s hand, and there’s a general view that he is telling his deputy just where the power lies.
Here are some tweets.

Alfred Mutua I didn’t believe you can behave that way!! I thought you were matured enough to handle Kiala.

Is Alfred Mutua this immature?? Removing doors and furniture from Kiala’s office suggests he might be.

Alfred Mutua’s locking of Kiala’s office with electric padlock is childish. Only jilted lovers behave that way.

Do you think this was the right move by Mutua?
