Former Machakos senator Johnstone Muthama has distanced himself with claims he has been a corrupt leader. “I have never been involved with corruption I can account for the wealth I have” says Muthama.
Speaking in Tala, Matungulu sub county of Machakos county Muthama said that everything he has acquired, he has worked for it.
“I hate corruption and I have never been involved in any, every penny i got i can trace it’s source and that is for sure“, Says Muthama.
He observed that some leaders get drunk with power and money when they get in politics thus engaging in corrupt activities through cripple the country’s economy.
“ If only everyone ate his/her own sweat then Kenya would be the best place ever but everyone is busy looking after themselves letting the country’s economy crumble “, He said.
He said the electorates too have their share of blame in corruption since when electing leaders they look for the loaded ones with big machines.
” That honest hustler asking for your votes can’t get your attention because he doesn’t have a flashy drive and a group of bodyguards”, He added.
He urged Kenyans not to make the mistakes they made in 2017 of voting in ‘hungry’ leaders out to loot the country and instead choose focused leaders.
