Row between Governor Mwangaza, Deputy deepens

Political wrangles in Meru have continued to escalate with differences between Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza and her deputy Isaac Mutuma coming to the fore once again.

The feud between the two pastors-turned-politicians has seen each blaming the other for their strained relationship since May last year.

On Wednesday, members of the public intercepted the deputy governor’s official vehicle as it was being transported to Nairobi for repair.

The supporters of the Deputy Governor intercepted the vehicle on allegations that it was being taken to Nairobi maliciously to ensure Mutuma remains grounded, unable to move freely.

However, Meru County Secretary Kiambi Atheru told Nation.Africa that the Deputy Governor’s vehicle has been at a repair workshop in Meru town and was being transported to the manufacturer’s headquarters in Nairobi for specialised repair.

“I am awaiting a report from the County Fleet Director so that we understand what happened. However, I don’t think there is anything fishy about taking the vehicle to Nairobi. We have other county government vehicles at garages in Nairobi,” Atheru said.

However, during the dramatic early morning incident, the driver of the car carrier was forced to instead take the vehicle to the Deputy Governor’s residence.

Mutuma admitted that the vehicle was intercepted after they suspected foul play.

“The vehicle was taken to the garage in December last year but I was informed that the office of the governor could not approve documents for its repair. There were strict instructions that no money should be released to repair my official car. Due to the delays, I resolved to repair it with my own money,” Mutuma said.

He said he was ready to raise the Sh310, 000 needed to repair his official car in Meru.

“I am ready to spend my own money because I have been fuelling the official vehicle since June last year. But when the governor learnt that I was ready to take the vehicle for repair, instructions were issued to the fleet directorate to have it taken to Toyota Kenya in Nairobi,” he said.

He claimed that the Meru County government owes the popular vehicle manufacturer millions of shillings leading to several vehicles being impounded.

“The decision to take my official car to Nairobi was meant to ensure it is among those impounded so that I am grounded. The privileges given to the office of the Deputy Governor are not a prerogative of the Governor but provided for by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission,” the Deputy Governor said.

Mutuma claimed that this is part of the gimmicks by the county executive to intimidate him after his fallout with the Governor.

On Sunday, Mutuma claimed that there have been attempts to convince him to resign from the position due to the split with his boss.

“I have been offered money to resign as Deputy Governor. However, I was not elected to be paid off so that I can resign,” he said.

Earlier, Governor Mwangaza admitted that there was a strained relationship with her deputy and that she could not force him into a truce.
