Lamu,KENYA:Lamu deputy governor Eric Mugo has told off politicians whom he says go about badmouthing the county government and spreading malicious propaganda about Governor Issa Timamy.
Mugo said a section of politicians had turned funerals, churches and other political forums into avenues for bashing Timamy and his administration using false and misinformed propaganda.
He cited the ongoing work of putting up a perimeter wall at the Mpeketoni Hospital saying some politicians were against it.
According to Mugo, the politicians were using the issue to speak ill of the governor.
“The county government is making all efforts to improve services for the people of Lamu no matter how good the work is,some MCAs and other politicians seem not to be satisfied and keep prodding on how to drag the governor’s name in the murk.thats unfair and its immature,”said Mugo.
Rumour mills have had it that the county government of Lamu was unable to sustain the hospital and that patients were suffering for lack of drugs and other necessities.
“This is no way to solicit votes for 2017.you doesn’t discredit other people’s work just to promote your own agenda, that’s so childish,”said Mugo.
