Former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri has formally launched The Service Party of Kenya.
Speaking during the launch in Nairobi, Kiunjuri promised that his new part will be a revolution in governance.
Kiunjuri said the Service Party of Kenya will be a grassroots party that will not only be the voice of the normal mwananchi but will also approach politics in the country differently.
“We have listened carefully to Kenyans and made the commitment to bring forth a platform that as our name suggests, will be unequivocal about service delivery to our people,” he said.
The Service Party was given a certificate of registration after meeting all the requirements on Tuesday.
The unveiling of the new party signals a comeback into politics by the immediate former Agriculture CS, who was dropped from the Cabinet in January by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kiunjuri was kicked out of Uhuru’s administration in the continued purge targeting Deputy President William Ruto’s allies. He is a close associate of the DP.
Service Party of Kenya is the latest entrant in Central Kenya as leaders position themselves for the 2022 elections.
With no end in sight to the growing squabbles in Jubilee, Kiunjuri is seeking to control the Central region with the new party.
