Machakos County Governor Alfred Mutua has been the talk of town for the last one day after calling upon Wiper's party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to retire from politics after his candidate in the recent Nguu/Masumba Ward by-election was defeated.
Mutua claimed that Kalonzo had failed to lead the Ukambani Region in settling the problems they have been facing his independence, further declaring himself as the region's kingpin.
This move attracted mixed reactions from Kenyans online, with a section of them taking to social media pages to poke holes in Mutua's leadership dragging stalled ambulance projects as one of the main discussions.
The former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama on Sunday criticized Mutua stating that he warned him against buying the 'Second hand' ambulances eight years ago without a good program on their maintenance but he ignored him.
Muthama claimed that out of the 120 ambulances the second term governor acquired, very few are operational while others have been dumped in different vehicle scrap yards.
"As Senator, Machakos County, I raised a complaint against Governor Mutua for corruptly purchasing 120 Second-hand Vehicles with no comprehensive maintenance programme. What I foresaw almost 8 years ago has come to pass," tweeted Muthama.
The UDA Chairman added that county expenditure and spending should be targeted, done prudently with long term consideration to avoid wasting county funds.
