Governor Alfred Mutua has pleaded with members of Machakos county assembly (MCAs) to bury their political differences with him for the sake of development.
Speaking during a tour of the Machakos Level 5 Hospital on Tuesday, Mutua said the wrangles between the MCAs and himself are hurting the county in different ways.
He urged the county legislators to embrace brotherhood so that the residents' lives get transformed during the remaining part of his term in office.
Mutua noted that time for politicking is over, adding that the residents are eager to see development and nothing else.
"This is the moment 'wananchi' should know the leaders who are pro-development," he said.
He also said that the region has continued to lag behind in terms of development because of the lack of readiness from the leaders to corporate with each other.
He further challenged the leaders to show their performance scoreboards before they throw jibes at each other.
"We cannot continue suffering when Ukambani has elected leaders. We will soon tell you what the community wants," Mutua said.
The MCAs have been faulting the county boss for what they believe to be an abuse of office.
They have continued to express their dissatisfaction over different issues in the county government.
