Machakos governor Alfred Mutua who is the middle of a legal battle with his ex-partner Lillian Ng'ang'a has started a heated debate on what leaders are doing for Kenya and Kenyans.

The politician who is currently in Dubai gushed about how he used to work in Dubai and his journey to the top of the political ladder.

Sharing a photo he took outside the Dubai Mall, Mutua described the country as a "place that stabilized my finances" and allowed him to "take a huge pay cut" when he quit his job in Dubai where he worked as an "Assistant Professor of Communications and Media at Zayed University."

He continued, "I then transversed the Middle East researching and writing. I embarked on making films in the region and at the same time got a lucrative consultancy job with a leading media house in Kenya."

Mutua said, "It was then that Kibaki’s Government noticed me and found me and I quit my Dubai job and came to Kenya (taking a huge pay cut), to be the country’s founding Government Spokesperson."

Adding, "It was working in Dubai, though, that stabilized my financial world. I was able to use the monies I made there to clear all loans and buy properties, including land in Kenya.

I was also able to buy equipment for my production company (did someone say Cobra Squad?) and undertake many other investment ventures.

I came back home to serve my people and I feel blessed that I came back financially stable because of the time and opportunity offered to me in Dubai. For that, I will always be grateful to Almighty God."

Check out his entire journey in his post below.

Social activist Boniface Mwangi who is also in Dubai wrote, "The Emirates and Qataris turned their desert countries into super economies, travel and business hubs, classy tourist destinations while back home our politicians are marketing poverty, Maasai villages and sand. Konza City is still a pipe dream. Elect better for Kenya to progress."

Kenyans as usual have something to say about all this. Here are some of their reactions.

syoks: I see Dr Alfred Mutua is also in Dubai, what you do with this information is up to you brother @bonifacemwangi 1

gerrieywainaina: 50 yrs ago Dubai was a desert 🏜 behind 🇰🇪 in the 60s Kenya gave Malaysia a huge loan... the day Kenyans will wake up our country will be where it's supposed to be... but for now let's ride those wheelbarrows in peace ✌

kadima: Ujinga ndo imejaa Kenya na electorate na fallacy ya mtu wetu, tribalism😀 we are bringing another fake leaders lineup for 2022 Kenya Iko shida 

teemoh12: I think we should have a vote of no confidence in our country, after every 2yrs..I would have already voted out the Kenyatta family in 2015😌. This thing of waiting till 5yrs is a scam 

essomotunde: I live here 🙌🙌🙌 & enjoy everyday life thanks to their visionary leaders and systems that are progressive and my heart bleeds for our African States........esp Kenya and its never-ending potential to be a great Nation! 

w.magoti: The lineup for 2022 tells a lot about who we are as a nation and where we are headed 😩 premium tears

nyamigwa: Unfortunately not many Kenyans wanna sacrifice to come off politicians ng'eta (nchi ya kitu kidogo).
