Former Secretary-General of the United Nation Conference of Trade and Development and 2022 Presidential candidate Dr. Mukhisa Kitui has unleashed comments that have targetted president Uhuru Kenyatta. The 2022 candidate has accused the head of state of neglecting the western region in matters of development.
Mukhisa was speaking in reference to the collapse of the state sugar company Mumias which is on its deathbed after it became bankrupt. This factory has been the center of political agenda as politicians use it to lure locals to vote for them, promising to revive its operation.
"This is not equal treatment of all citizens of the country," Mukhisa said.
He further stated that this government should show that it cares about the problems of a local sugarcane farmer. His sentiments were however counteracted when Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa gave his comments.
According to the CS, Mumias and other similar factories have been under the spell of mismanagement by corrupt individuals for a long, thereby defending president Kenyatta from the accusations.
