– There are claims that MCA’s in Machakos have ganged up to make the leadership of Alfred Mutua’s a living nightmare
– For starters, they have been meeting in Machakos town on night retreats with the Wiper party from which Mutua’s competitor hailed
– This is addition to demanding huge amounts of money without justifying what the monies will be used for
Machakos Members of the county Assembly (MCA’s) have vowed to make the life of Governor-elect Alfred Mutua living hell.
In documents seen by our newsdesk, the MCA were seen in numerous correspondeces, demanding for the release of huge amounts of money without explaining what the funds would be used for.
The MCA’s according to sources close to the Governor, have been holed up in endless night meetings in Machakos colluding with the Wiper party on how to make the county unmanageable.
The MCA’s have so far rejected the County Executive Commissioners (CEC’s) ,fought bills and motions while demanding for outrageous amounts of cash to spend on non-priority expenses.
The amount of money goes well into a staggering KSh 1.3 billion which has neither been itemized or broken down for justification.
The MCA’s were reportedly organizing numerous local and international trips although none of the trips were justified.
The county government has remained adamant on not releasing the funds and inadvertently created a tussle with the MCA’s.
They feel that Govenor Mutua has blocked their chance of living large like other MCA’s across the country.
Chief strategist in Governor Mutua’s government was recently overheard saying that in this kind of a tussle, there will be no winners, that the MCAs rather strike a quick middle ground to to allow their work to kick off.
As at the time of this publication, the County Government of Machakos was not available for comment on the matter.
