It was also an opportunity to audit the payroll and ensure that all people being paid through the county government’s system are bona fide employees of the County.
“I have implored on all the employees to have the right attitude towards service delivery to the people.
Machakos is our County and we must own it collectively through exemplary service to the people, being creative, innovative and having an open mind towards work”,the county boss said
He added “the lack of funds should not be an impediment towards service delivery.
We must stretch every shilling to offer better services and work diligently for the mwananchi.”

He asked all leaders to dedicate their energies towards the work they do, so that collectively, the success of the county is assured.
“I am demanding from my Ministers, Chief Officers and Directors, exceptional levels of professionalism, integrity and accountability.
They must lead the staff in a change of mindset, so that we work for the people, owning the projects and being part and parcel of the growth and development of the entire county.
Machakos Ni Yetu and we must proudly identify with the programs rolled out for our people”,Mutua said.
