Governor Mutua calls for political tolerance

03 November 2014, 13:33 Morris Mugambi

Machakos - Machakos Governor, Dr. Alfred Mutua has called for political tolerance among leaders in the lower Ukambani region.

Addressing Christian faithful at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Changamwe, Mutua called on leaders to embrace political divergence  irrespective of their views.

He faulted divisive politics that for years have caused the country to lag behind in terms of development and deprived people of service delivery.

He added that times had changed from the traditional days when leaders would take back seats in development once they were elected only to re-emerge when elections were nearing, forming tribal based coalitions to ascend them to power and offer them bargaining rights for a share of the cake in the national government.

He was accompanied by Kamba leaders including MPs Hon. Victor Munyaka (Machakos), Hon. Eng  Vincent Musyoka (Mwala), Hon. Francis Mwangangi (Yatta), former Kibwezi constituency MP Hon. Kalembe Ndile and Changamwe local leaders among others.

On their part, the lawmakers echoed the Governor’s sentiments and urged residents to shun leaders who cause divisions instead of uniting them.

Meanwhile, Machakos Deputy Governor Bernard kiala pleaded with the County Government of Machakos to welcome him back to the fold.

While addressing a congregation at AIC Bomani in Machakos town Sunday, Kiala said time has already come for him and the Governor to bury the hatchet and focus on development projects that they promised the people of Machakos County during the campaigns.

"I am now ready to work with my boss because I have realised such differences will lead us nowhere. Let the Senator and Governor join hands together so we can all work for our  people,’’ said Kiala.
