Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua shocked the country after he broke into tears while addressing more than 2000 leaders at Machakos town in a consultative meeting.
He was overcome by emotion after he remembered plot by some political leaders in the county to destabilize him following his desire to liberate Ukambani from poverty.
His speech was cut short due to emotions and it took Kitui South MP Rachael Nyamai and her Kilome counterpart Regina Ndambuki responsibility to provide him with handkerchiefs and helped to wipe him his tears out.
The enraged crowd could not stand what was happening and showed their support to their Governor and could not understand how the politicians could not support projects which are meant to liberate their people from poverty.
“My conscience is very clear. All I want is better welfare for the Kamba people and not any seat at all as my detractors are thinking,” he said.
He also stated that dirty politics in Ukambani will make the area lag behind in terms of development.
“I want to tell them no matter how many meetings they hold to undermine me, I will soldier on to liberate our people from the politics of poverty”
