Mutua promises to do away with all grass-thatched houses in Machakos
Machakos governor Alfred Mutua will be giving iron sheets to all families that still live in grass thatched houses in his county.
Mutua announced his promise as part of his re-election manifesto stating that the iron sheets program will start in September.
Machakos villages have the low income earners living in mud huts thatched with grass and a polythene paper underneath to keep rains away.
The governor, who is facing stiff competition from Wiper party’s Wavinya Ndeti, has also promised to construct stalls for hawkers across the county and provide water to all residents.
This despite launching several water programs across the county that included village water showers that were widely criticized online.
Mutua’s promise to offer iron sheets to those living in grass thatched houses elicited mixed reactions online.
Starting next September we are putting in place a program to provide iron sheets to families living in thatched houses in the entire county. pic.twitter.com/iM58unFEhZ
