The Service Party Leader and former Agriculture Minister Mwangi Kiunjuri vows to match President Uhuru Kenyatta word for word if the Head of State verbally goes for him. Speaking over the weekend, Kiunjuri, who was sacked by the president in January 2019 for poor performance in the Agriculture docket, revealed he will open what he described as ”a can of worms” hidden in the current administration if the Head of State continues pushing him.
”I have always refrained from attacking the President … but I want to say this … if the President attacks me, I will have no choice. I will not allow President Kenyatta to push me into a corner and continue using his political lieutenants to attack me. Going forward, there will be a reaction for any action by President Kenyatta,” Kiunjuri said in Tharaka Nithi County on Saturday, during the burial of Ms. Lucy Njeri Mbae, who was the wife of former Governor Samuel Ragwa.
The Service Party leader took an issue with not being invited to Sagana, where Uhuru Kenyatta is meeting a delagation of Mt Kenya leaders and opinion shapers.
“When there is a problem, you call everyone to settle the issue. If there is a problem in Mt Kenya, the first group to be invited should have been of those in the opposing camp. Why should you be in Sagana while other leaders are out there? We never got an invitation and turned it down. If I were called, I would have gone.”
