Wavinya Ndeti tells Raila to back Kalonzo for president in 2027

Wavinya reiterated that governors have an obligation to work with the national government of the day for the sake of development.

The governor said the national government had offered to support many development projects in the county and she will not let that opportunity pass.

"There is nothing that will stop me from working with the national government for the sake of the people of Machakos who elected me and my deputy to office," she said.

Mwangangi said the Constitution stipulates that counties should work with the national government.

He said those uncomfortable with the governor working with President William Ruto's administration should get used to the situation since she has to fulfill her mandate.
