Kenyans will fully enjoy the fruits devolution if county governments set aside political differences and work with the National Government in development, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said. He endorsed Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua for his exemplary service to the residents of his county and working with the National Government to enhance development. Citing the upgraded ultra-modern level 5 Machakos Hospital which he commissioned today, President Kenyatta said it was offering key services that were previously non-existent. “When we provided medical equipment to treat cancer, kidney illnesses, ICU and laboratory services, Governor Mutua did not hesitate to take the equipment,” he said. “The services offered in Machakos hospital now are similar to those at Kenyatta National Hospital.” The President was referring to the Sh38 billion medical equipment that the Government will acquire for county hospitals. The Head of State spoke when he addressed a capacity packed Stadium in Machakos town. He said unlike Governor Mutua, some governors decided to “play politics with the health of the people” and have refused to accept the equipment.
