Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua bid farewell to Machakos residents as curtains drew on his 10-year-tenure that commenced in 2013.
On his last day in office, Mutua held a cabinet meeting that saw him approve Machakos county public transport sexual harassment and gender-based violence policy. He took the opportunity to thank his Cabinet for working with him.
“I held my last cabinet meeting as a governor today at the Machakos White House…I thanked my ministers for their exemplary service and support during my term as governor and I urged them to support the incoming government and continue to serve the great people of Machakos. Mbele Iko Sawa!” Mutua said.
“I thank the people of Kenya and those of Machakos for giving me an opportunity to serve as governor for 2 terms. I also thank God for enabling me to be the best governor in Kenya but even more so in the continent of Africa for that special recognition all in the service of wananchi, that is why we are here to say Thank you very much, God bless you.” Mutua added.
