BUSIA, Kenya, Aug 28 – Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has condemned divisive politics and called on leaders to embrace unity.
Speaking at Uganda Martyrs Busia Catholic Church Parish, Mutua said the biggest challenge facing Kenyans is not the individual leaders but the politics of poverty that the poor leadership capitalises on.
“We have allowed politics of poverty to dominate our social fabric and that has kept us despite all the efforts that we put in as a people,” Mutua said.
The Machakos Governor said his development philosophy of Maendeleo Chap Chap was keen to fight poverty in a speedy manner in order to improve people’s wellbeing.
Mutua thanked the people of Busia for peaceful coexistence saying he is encouraged by the manner Luhyas and Tesos have continued to live harmoniously over the years.
Mutua was attending a fundraising to construct a new church building at the parish.
Governor Mutua who was hosted by Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong was welcomed by thousands of catholic faithful.
