Machakos Governor Mutua again condemns Saba Saba rallies

30 June 2014, 13:55

Machakos - Machakos Governor, Dr Alfred Mutua, has once again distanced himself from the opposition’s call for national rallies on the 7th of July under the Saba Saba banner.

Mutua said that this was a time for actions and leaders should focus more on development and not political rallies which did not change the public’s livelihoods.  

Mutua said that the country needed a paradigm shift in the way things were done in the country adding that it was in that basis that he was elected.

The politician has been seen as the face of the politicians who are breaking away from Cord’s call for mass rallies choosing instead to work with Uhuru’s government in the interest of the people and development.

“Political survival is not as important as delivering development. If I can transform Machakos in the five years I am Governor, then there is no need for me to maintain my seat for another term,” said Mutua.

Last week, Machakos County hosted a number of leaders both from Wiper Party and Jubilee during the opening of the 33 kilometre road connecting Kithimani, Makutano and Ma Mwala, which is arguably the fastest built in Kenya and possibly Africa.

While hailing the speed at which the road was built, Mutua said that it has been a norm for contractors to take too long while building roads I the country and that the same is supposed to change.

“Whenever a road is built in the country, by the time it gets to the end, the beginning has begun to wear,” said Mutua.
