Former Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya.

  • Natembeya said with the help of determined Murang'a residents, he was able to implement the Alcoholic Drinks Control Act, famously dubbed ‘Mututho Law’.

Immediate former Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya says serving as Murang’a District Commissioner is one of his career highlights.

Natembeya, who on Wednesday announced his resignation to focus on his political ambitions, stated that he is proud of restoring sanity in the district, saying one could hardly find a pregnant woman due to alcoholism among men.

“Murang’a is the only county I think wamama walikuwa  wanafanya maandamano kwa sababu wnaume hawakuweko,” Natembeya told journalists. “Ulikuwa unatembea Murang’a mzima huwezi pata mwanamke hata mmoja mjamzito kwa sababu majamaa wamepotelea kwa pombe, vijana wanalala kwa mitaro.”

Natembeya said with the help of determined Murang'a residents, he was able to implement the Alcoholic Drinks Control Act, famously dubbed ‘Mututho Law’.

“Tuliclean up hiyo mahali pombe ikaisha, tukishirikiana na wananchi,” said Natembeya.

The straight-talking administrator attributed his work ethic to former Internal Security Minister, the late John Michuki, from whom he learned the ropes while serving as his personal assistant.

“Alikuwa mtu very particular, disciplined na aliweka masuala ya wananchi mbele, mambo mengi ambayo nilijifunza kutoka kwake yamenisaidia hadi sasa,” he said proudly.

Natembeya rose through the ranks from being the no-nonsense minister's assistant, through serving as a District Officer, District Commissioner, County Commissioner, up to his latest post.

He has served in the public service for over two decades and has plunged into the race for the Trans Nzoia gubernatorial post.
