  • Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro on Friday, June 6, called out President Uhuru Kenyatta for applying double standards in his cabinet.

    Speaking during a press briefing in Kiharu, Nyoro alleged that former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri, was fired in January 14, 2020, after he attended a meeting with MPs.

    While comparing situations, Nyoro pointed out that Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa also attended a meeting with leaders from the Western region under the president's watch.

    "Yesterday I saw Wamalwa, a cabinet secretary, meeting up with leaders from the western region to organise politics in the region yet Kiunjuri attended only one meeting with MPs and he got fired.

    "Now, when Wamalwa does the same, he is considered as one who is working on the Big 4 agenda," Nyoro added.

    The Kiharu MP lamented that government was frustrating leaders from the Mt Kenya region who were supporting Deputy President William Ruto.

    Nyoro alleged that the division being witnessed in the Jubilee party begun immediately after the March 9, 2018 handshake between the president and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

    "Raila is lethal politically. If he touches a tree, it starts to wither. He has never associated with any political party and left it the same way," Nyoro complained.

    Meanwhile, in Kakamega, an angry mob took on Wamalwa at the Kakamega Airstrip on Friday, June 6, over what the group termed as complete disregard to priorities. 

    The angry mob, who forced them to take cover, started chanting pro-Ruto slogans amid jeers and insults. 

    "Peaceful coexistence is the pathway to harmony and prosperity of society. I urge all communities along the borders of Kakamega and Nandi to live in peaceful coexistence irrespective of gender, age, race, tribe or religion. We are all one family under God," the CS advised.

    Previously, Wamalwa had attended a meeting held by COTU Sec-Gen Francis Atwoli at his Kajiado home to discuss matters pertaining to the elusive Luhyia unity. 

    He was endorsed to serve as a spokesman for the Western Kenya region.
