Machakos Deputy Governor Francis Mwangangi has said that after the General elections, there was a time he almost gave up on his position.
Speaking in Tala, Mwangangi said that he was used to National Government and when it came to the County level he found things a bit different.
However, the outspoken Deputy County boss did not delve deeply into the issue but promised things were going on well.
“I won’t lie to you there was a time I was almost running away. I was used to matters at the National level and when I came to the county things were totally different. That was then now I’m doing good and catching up,” he said.
The former Yatta Member of Parliament had attended a groundbreaking ceremony for the priests’ house at St Mary’s Catholic Church in Tala, Matungulu sub-county of Machakos county.
He noted that there is no room to take the County backward but rather work together with the Governor in propelling the County forward.
“I would not want us to go back but work together and move forward as a County for the betterment of our people. We will ensure the issues affecting our people are looked into more so roads, affordable healthcare, water among other things,” said Mwangangi.
