, MACHAKOS, Kenya, May 5 – Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua has said he is not interested in supremacy battles with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka but is driven by the desire to trigger social, political and economic transformation in Ukambani.

Mutua said the era of retrogressive politics that do not change the lives of the electorate was long gone.

Overview
  • Mutua said that the national government had already honoured its pledge to issue 200,000 title deeds to Ukambani residents.
  • He hit out at a section of Ukambani leaders who have slammed the State House visit terming them as opportunistic.
  • He said his desire was not to split the Kamba political bloc adding that those peddling such propaganda were afraid of his rising star in politics.

“Let’s join hands and be agents of political change. We must change the lives of our people by practising politics of development,” said Mutua.

He said the recent State House visit by a delegation from Ukambani was a positive move that was bound to trigger transformational politics in the region.

Mutua said that the national government had already honoured its pledge to issue 200,000 title deeds to Ukambani residents.

He hit out at a section of Ukambani leaders who have slammed the State House visit terming them as opportunistic.

“Those leaders only want to use their positions to benefit themselves and do not have the interests of the electorate at heart. They are simply concerned on how to fill their tummies and those of their cronies,” said Mutua.

He said his desire was not to split the Kamba political bloc adding that those peddling such propaganda were afraid of his rising star in politics.

Mutua was speaking at Kimutwa public grounds during a cancer awareness and screening event hosted by the Machakos First Lady Lilian Nganga Mutua.

MPs Victor Munyaka (Machakos Town), Vincent Musyoka (Mwala), John Munuve (Mwingi North) and Tip Tip party leader Kalembe Ndile also attended the function.

Musyoka and Munyaka reiterated that time for leaders who have nothing to show in terms of development despite having held high positions in government to quit politics was ripe.

“Some have represented their constituencies for over 25 years and have never initiated the construction of a single kilometre of a tarmacked road,” said Munyaka.

Ndile said time for generational change in politics was ripe adding that Mutua represents the ideals and aspirations of many voters.

He said politicians opposed to Mutua were afraid that he had unmasked their culture of politics of deceit.

The First Lady said there was need for people to go for cancer screening adding this will enable those affected seek treatment on time.

She said that her cancer awareness campaign had seen many men and women benefit from the program.

Mutua said his government has set Sh200 million for purchasing equipment and drugs for cancer patients.
