Kikuyu MP and Majority Leader in the National Assembly Kimani Ichungwa says he is not responsible for the Monday invasion at Mama Ngina Kenyatta’s Northlands farm in Ruiri and that he is open to investigations to prove his innocence.
The Majority leader explained his previous sentiments on Kenyans invading Northlands were not an incitement but just a report of what Mt Kenya people have been saying about the Kenyattas.
”I am a resident of Central Kenya, and I know what the people there are saying about the former first family. On Monday, March 20, I only relayed what the people of Mount Kenya had long been saying about the Kenyattas,” the MP said.
” If anyone suspects that I had a role to play in the Northlands farm invasion, then I’m open to investigations. The police can access my phone to establish who I spoke to if I did any mobilisation, or which places I visited on or before Monday, March 27. I’m ready to have an investigations file opened against me,” he added.
The vocal legislator told journalists he first saw the news of the former president’s farm invasion on social media but had to wait for the mainstream media to verify the reports.
MP Ichungwa also condemned the attackers who invaded Spectre East Africa limited which is associated with Azimio leader Raila Odinga.
”I first saw on social media the reports claiming that unknown people had invaded the former president’s farm. That was around 11:30 am. I had to wait for mainstream media to verify and file accurate reports. It was after a local TV station aired live footage of what was happening at the farm that I got to know that the incident had indeed taken place.
Any act of anarchy, not only directed at the Kenyattas and the Odingas, but also mama mbogas and other ordinary citizens are unacceptable, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.”
A week ago, the Kikuyu Town MP accused Uhuru of sponsoring the Azimio demonstrations and suggested that people would invade his Ruiru farm to retaliate.
