Governor Mutua outlines his vision for the next five years.

Governor Alfred Mutua addressing the second session of Machakos County Assembly on Tuesday.

The Machakos government is planning to sponsor a motion in the county assembly allow for a public/private partnership, setting stage for massive infrastructure development. 

This was disclosed today by Governor Alfred Mutua during the second session of the assembly also attended by the senator, Boniface Kabaka. 

Addressing the assembly, Mutua said that the move was necessitated by the scarcity of resources saying that the partnership will go a long way in spurring development in the region.

“We will soon be rolling out the new city project and this will be expanded to set up a new business park and factory in every constituency, hence the need to be smart and engage in such partnerships,” he said. 

He told the assembly that his plans were to initiate amazing, and at times, mind boggling development projects geared towards job creation and uplifting the people's living standards.

Mutua requested the members of the assembly to forget the past and join hands with the executive for the sake of the people, observing that previously the two arms of his government had strained relationships, something that delayed development projects and services to the electorate.

“I am ready, as I have always been, to join hands with you because it is not about me or you, but the people who elected us. Campaigns are over and we should now leave the politics behind us and champion the growth of our people,” the governor said. 

“My journey to State House has begun in earnest and I request you to be in the forefront in spearheading it home,” Mutua told the house. 

Meanwhile, the Wiper party point man in Machakos County, Simon Kitheka, has severed ties with his party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka.

Kitheka who is also chairman of the Machakos branch of the national chamber of commerce and industry, has been a diehard supporter of the party and was known to use his personal resources to popularize the Kalonzo led outfit.

“I have lost confidence in wiper and Kalonzo and have taken a sabbatical political leave,” Kitheka posted on his facebook wall. 

Kitheka was also involved in campaigning for the Wiper Machakos gubernatorial candidate, Wavinya Ndeti who was trounced by Governor Alfred Mutua who defended his seat under his Maendeleo chap chap party. 

Machakos county assembly majority leader, Francis Ngunga, also of wiper, on Tuesday pledged to work with Mutua's government to propel the county to greater heights. 

Speaking at a prayer meeting hosted by the speaker, Florence Mwangangi and attended by Mutua and senator Boniface Kabaka, Ngunga said he had buried the hatched with the executive and promised to work closely with Mutua 's government to spur growth.
