Taita Taveta Governor Andrew Mwadime has urged his political rivals to shun engaging in politics and instead join hands to transform the county.
He claimed that some of those eyeing the governor seat in 2027 are out to destabilise his administration through propaganda and sponsoring demonstrations.
Mwadime said his manifesto is on the verge of collapsing because some leaders had already started engaging into 2027 politics even before he had started delivering his promise.
“The time I have been in office is very little to say that I have not delivered. Let us just stop politicking and allow my administration to serve the people who gave us the mandate to lead,” Mwadime said on Monday.
Speaking while presiding over the groundbreaking ceremony of the construction of Sh45 million rice milling factory in Taveta, the county boss said those who were hell-bent on distracting his leadership had started strategising for the 2027 elections.
Mwadime’s leadership has been under sharp criticism following the nurses’ mishap that led to amputation of an infant’s hand at Wesu Subcounty Hospital a fortnight ago.
The mishap triggered a heated push for Mwadime to do a shake up in the health sector.
The governor however said his administration has taken disciplinary action against negligent officers at the Wesu Hospital.
“The four officers on duty at the time of the incident have been suspended and other doctors are currently being investigated. We are keen to ensure such a case does not occur again,” Mwadime said.
The governors further claimed that his political nemesis are capitalising on the unfortunate Wesu case to advance their political ambitions by sponsoring demos.
Mwadime said he is keen on instilling a culture of servant leadership, unity and accountability.
Deputy governor Christine Kilalo asked county leaders to forge a common working formula that would ensure steady development and economic growth of the region.
She said a more synergised leadership would ensure quicker transformation of the county’s economy.
“Our appeal is to have a common working formula that is geared towards making this county a better place. To achieve that, we need to shun premature campaigns,” Kilalo said.
