Speaking to kenyagist.com , the Machakos governor expressed how they reminded him of his cheeky childhood memories and how he used to tell them jokes.
The Governor who was full of praise and appreciation for them gifted them with goodies ranging from money to quality blankets, free chicken and chicken feeds , dams and boreholes and bursaries for their grandchildren.
â€œI thanked them for their love, their words of wisdom and their prayers. Once you take care of your mother and mothers, you have taken care of the community,” the Governor noted.
The grannies who are in their sunset years of their life heaped praise for the governor for helping them access facilities such as piped water to their homesteads.
Most of these grannies are widows and they took advantage of this meeting to air their grievances to their governor, ranging from money the elderly receive from the government not getting to them.
Mutua assured them of his commitment to ensuring poverty is rolled back so that everyone has money in their pockets. They promised to visit him again next year in the State House if he clinches the seat.
