Machakos governor Alfred Mutua has joined in on the never-ending debate on corruption,
Speaking on Monday, Mutua stated that most politicians are spending their time politicking and stealing, saying this is the reason Kenyans are dying of hunger and why there is little money in circulation.
He pointed a finger at those with a tendency of claiming that their tribes are being targeted during this war on corruption.
Mutua further urged the president to get serious in this war, and to start giving names instead of using figurative speeches. He was referring to Uhuru’s latest speech on the topic in Namibia, where he said that he would not spare his brother, friend or closest political ally.
The governor was speaking during a drought mitigation exercise in his county.
Together with MCA for Mumbuni North, Hon. Paul Museku, and his Minister for Agriculture, Hon. Urbanus Musyoka, Mutua distributed free seeds to farmers at Ivumbuni village.
The seed distribution project is part of his agricultural program for food security, with the ultimate goal of getting Machakos out of the list of counties that rely on donor food aid every drought season.
The governor revealed that his government has made other interventions, including providing subsidized fertilizers, tilling tractors for every ward, sinking and equipping boreholes, providing quality extension services to the farmers, distribution of day old chicks and a green house program.
Over 40 tonnes of green grams and beans will be distributed across the 8 sub counties, targeting the less privileged.
