Former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri has warned President Uhuru Kenyatta that he will not sit back and watch him tarnish his name.

Speaking to a local daily, Kiunjuri stated that if the Head of State didn't stop his attacks against him in public rallies, he would have some 'things to say.' 

“One thing that we will not allow the President to do is to push us into a corner and continue tarnishing our names. That will not happen. That cannot happen. 

“I have never attacked anybody including the President but if they continue to attack me, I also have some things to say,” Mr. Kiunjuri declared. 

Kiunjuri's words come after the Head of State called him out during his Four-day working tour of the Central Kenya Region at Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri County.

Kenyatta accused Kiunjuri of failing to deliver during his stint as the Agriculture CS. 

The President during his tour of the central region interacted and met with leaders as he popularised the building bridges initiative (BBI).

While a section of the leaders from Central had claimed that the document is unpopular in the region, members of county assemblies (MCAs) from more than ten counties promised to pass the BBI bill promptly.  

In return, the President promised the MCAs a Sh2 million car grant which they requested during the meeting. 

President Kenyatta sacked Kiunjuru from the Agriculture docket on January 14, 2020, and was replaced by Peter Munya.
