The former majority whip of the Senate Hon Irungu Kang’ata took a statement on a live television broadcast revealing what Kenyans should expect from him following the dewhipping from power by his Jubilee party.
The latter had been invited to an interview at Citizen TV together with Ndaragwa MP Hon Jeremiah Kioni to discuss the fresh purge in the party.
First, the Murang’a senator Irungu Kang’ata still insisted that his ejection was unfair since a proper procedure as per the constitution was not followed. He also stood on his ground as far as the letter he wrote to the president was concerned saying it was utter truth hence he did not regret writing it.
“It was not fair, the process was illegal. I did not do anything wrong, I only wrote a letter. If at all expressing my personal opinion, being candid and frank is wrong then I’m guilty as charged.
I didn’t express a personal opinion concerning BBI. I didn’t say I dislike BBI, I just said the people in my region seem not to be enthusiastic with BBI.” Irungu Kang’ata stated.
The show host Waihiga Mwaura then asked Kang’ata about his next move following the ouster and whether he will officially defect to the Tangatanga wing which is led by the deputy president Dr William Ruto.
Despite his reluctance on answering the question, he finally revealed what Kenyans should expect from him in the next two or three weeks.
According to Irungu Kang’ata, his next move will be influenced by the public and not himself. He said politics is all about the people hence would need time to go and consult with the people of Murang’a on his next move, then announce it officially in three weeks’ time.
“That determination will be made very soon maybe in two to three weeks I will hold a small gathering in my home, Murang’a, and make it known to the public. First it’s not about me, it’s about the wananchi. I need to sit with them and know what they are saying. Just like the letter I wrote, it was a voice of the wananchi.” Irungu Kang’ata added.
