Governor Mutua goes to the rescue of Tom Mboya, Dedan Kimathi Statues

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has come to the rescue of famous Tom Mboya and Dedan Kimathi statues.

The Tom Mboya and Dedan Kimathi statues have been making headlines following their deplorable state which has disgusted most people.

The National monument of the heroes has been left in a dire ‘crying situation.’

Governor Mutua has expressed his high levels of dissatisfaction on how the statues are being managed. Dr Mutua has stated that he was part of the leaders that pushed for their construction.

“I am disgusted by the shameful state of neglect and disrepair of the statues. I am actually affected by their state because I participated actively in the policy for their construction, with Amb. Francis Muthaura, when I served as Government Spokesperson,”he said.

Mutua has vowed to personally take full responsibility in the maintenance of those statues.

“I will personally repair and maintain the statues for as long as it takes or those concerned wake up from their slumber,”Mutua stated.

The governor has however blamed the leaders for neglecting their sole duties to focus on politics.

“This disrepair and neglect is an example of what happens when instead of concentrating on serving Wananchi, leaders are involved in propaganda campaigns and political activities for higher office,” he insisted.

Governor Mutua has cited the example of statues from other countries and the way they are properly maintained.

“When you visit the developed nations, you will find that statues of heroes, public squares and parks and general environment for members of public are well maintained,” Mutua retorted.

The top rated governor has also blasted the leasders of Nairobi of wearing Suits while forsaking their core duties.

“You can wear a suit but if your environment is dirty, you are fake and also dirty. The neglect you see of buildings, airports and parks is indicative of the neglect in the provision of service and quality of work. That is what make us a poor nation,”Mutua said.

Angered Mutua claimed that the state of the famous monuments its a total let down of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration:

“Surely, we do not expect President Uhuru Kenyatta to personally visit, clean and repair Tom Mboya‘s or Dedan Kimathi’s statues. His people are letting him down and heads should roll. This is an embarrassment to president Uhuru and his Government.”

The maintenance of the statues is mainly a core responsibility of the county Government which has seemingly neglected that duty.

Firebrand activist Boniface Mwangi also raised the question regarding the maintenance of the Tom Mboya statue which is actually in a crying shameful state.
