Former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama has said that he will convert the Governor's office dubbed white house into a hospital facility if elected in next year's polls.
Taking a jab at the Machakos Governor, Muthama stated that he was ill-advised to construct the Multimillion house at Machakos Town.
The 'White-house' has had Kenyans wagging their tounges since its unveil on May,2020 after Mutua spent Ksh350 million for its construction with the approval of the county government.
"Building an overpriced multi-billion Governor's office (Whitehouse) by Dr. Alfred Mutua in Machakos Town was ill-advised and against the common good. In my tenure as the Governor, I will convert that office block to a referral hospital to ensure that all residents have access," United Democratic Alliance Chairman stated.
He added, "To the highest possible standard of health care irrespective of where they live within the County. This will stop unnecessary & costly movement of patients (seeking high level of care) to Kenyatta Teaching & Referral Hospital in Nairobi City County. Our people deserve better."
Muthama recently announced that he would be eyeing the governor's seat in the 2022 general election.
"Since 2017 when I took a break from active politics, I have been receiving delegates requesting me to get back to political leadership… if the wish of Machakos County electorate is to serve them, then I have accepted their will," Muthama earlier stated.
He faces off Wiper Party's Wavinya Ndeti for the county boss seat in the coming elections.
