The governor earned the name following his project ”Beautification of Uhuru Highway”, to spruce up the city in the run-up ahead of the then US President Barack Obama’s visit to Kenya, in July, 2015.
The move, apparently, attracted the Ford Kenya party deputy leader, who took to social media to question why there was no more grass.
Khalwale was driving past Uhuru Highway to the city centre, when he tweeted about it, prompting reactions from his followers, such as prominent High Court Advoocate, Jennifer Shamalla.
Check the below tweets, shared, Friday May 19, 2017:
@KideroEvans reportedly spent Sh. 40million to plant grass on Mombasa Road. Alas, he has now uprooted the grass!
