GOVERNOR MRUTTU CONDEMS THE GOVERNMENT’S RECENT DEALINGS: Read his full press statement


IN A PRESS STATEMENT RELEASE, here is what the governor had to say
“On behalf of the people of Taita Taveta County and on my own behalf as Governor John Mtuta Mruttu, I wish to issue a press statement as follows:-
1. We would like to thank the people of Malindi for the mature manner they made their voice heard through the ballot on 7th March, 2016 where they elected ODM candidate Hon. Willy Baraka Mtengo. Congratulations to all residents of Malindi.

2. We would also like to congratulate Governors Amason Kingi and Ali Hassan Joho together with top leadership of ODM who made time and effort to make it possible for the ODM candidate to take the day. Not forgetting the all the other leaders including Hon. Rashid Bezimba, Abuswamad Sharrif, Aisha Jumwa, Mishi Mboko and several other leaders who sacrificed their resources and time for the party ODM to take the day.
3. We wish to register our disappointment at the manner at which IEBC turned a blind eye as election offences where being committed openly before the national television. Is it that the “tolerance” witnessed was because the ruling coalition was involved?
4. Further we are in solidarity with Governors Ali Hassan Joho and Governor Amason Jeffa Kingi in condemning the blatant harassment by the state machinery following the humiliating defeat in Malindi by elections. Clearly we are witnessing the shrinking of democratic space in Kenya by which the ruling class can use security withdrawal for elected leadership as a means to discipline them for not toeing the line.
We believe the Police Force is funded by the tax payer and NOT a ruling party therefore should never be used as “rewards” to friendly leadership. We are alive to the fact that the said Governors never used or misused their licensed ammunition to harass or threaten anyone’s life so withdrawing of their security followed by cancellation of their firearms certificates can only be mischief by the ruling Jubilee Coalition and must be condemned in all manner by all peace loving Kenyans.”
Eng. John Mtuta Mruttu
Governor
Taita Taveta County
