Alfred Mutua (Machakos), Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) and their Kitui counterpart Charity Ngilu said the

President has shown great determination in slaying corruption.

Speaking during a joint rally in Masinga town, Machakos County, on Wednesday, the three governors urged President Kenyatta to be more ruthless in the fight against corruption.

They told him not to spare anyone implicated in graft scandals and instead push for recovery of all stolen taxpayers' money.

According to the governors, corruption is to blame for poor development in the country.

Led by Governor Mutua, they also declared support for the famous handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga.

The governors urged President Kenyatta to ensure that the handshake benefits all Kenyans.

“As the leadership of the Lower Eastern region, we continue to support the government and leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his fight against corruption. It is the era of politics of development and not empty rhetoric,” Mutua said.

The Ukambani governors vowed to work together and push the interests of the region forward.

The trio pleaded with the elected leaders to support them as they seek to champion development in the region.

They launched the 19-kilometers Kivandini-Masinga road before holding a joint rally at Masinga market.
