Former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri has resurfaced on the political scene with a sensational attack at ODM Leader Raila Odinga.
Kiunjuri claimed that Raila pretended to be sick during a BBI meeting where serious Mt Kenya issues were being addressed.
The former CS claimed the former Prime Minister was deliberately discriminating against the Mt Kenya region by disregarding the issues they raise on the BBI process.
“We have seen the BBI process taken to almost every region. From Kisii, Mombasa, Kitui, and Narok – the regions raised their issues and he responded with a promise of looking into them and even offered solutions.”
“When it came to Mt Kenya, we had a ten-point agenda which we delivered in Meru touching on local issues such as milk and miraa farming. Raila pretended to be sick to avoid responding to the issues. The only thing he did was to have other people speak on irrelevant things and he concluded by saying nobody can stop reggae,” the former CS stated.
The fallen CS did not substantiate his allegations and appeared to have used Raila’s falling voice during the Meru BBI rally to carry out a political attack.
Kiunjuri is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto – Raila’s arch-rival who has dismissed the BBI process as a project to divide Kenyans.
Prior to the rally, Raila told a delegate meeting in Meru that the BBI process was to collect the views of all Kenyans after which they would be harmonized into actionable policies and laws.
