Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri was today on receiving end after Kenyans on Twitter castigated him for failing to deliver on his mandate and instead he is busy perfecting is 2022 game plan.
In a series of tweets that trended with a sarcastic hashtag dubbed #AsanteKiunjuri, a section of Kenyans highlighted a series of issues that in all appearances left an egg on the CS’s face.
As comments streams in, it was clear that his decision to engage in early 2022 succession politics through the veils of BBI did not sit well with Kenyans who accused him of wanting to kill Kenyans through the importation of toxic maize and sugar which they claimed had high levels of aflatoxin, thus endangering their lives.
Enraged Kenyans slammed the CS for sleeping on his job yet farmers across the country are facing tough times. Among the tough issues raised include untimely payments of tea and coffee farmers across the country.
They faulted the CS of slow uptake of maize from local maize farmers by the NCPB.
The online audience also cited poor prices of milk and other farm produce as another failure orchestrated by Kiunjuri in his tenure as the agriculture CS.
CS Kiunjuri on Thursday, October 24, 2019, was spotted alongside Jubilee Nominated Senator, Isaac Mwaura, who called for a press conference in Nairobi leading a brigade of Mt Kenya region’s leaders in blasting Kenyatta’s Building Bridges Initiative.
One netizens opined that Kiunjuri has many skeletons in his cupboard in as far as running the agriculture docket is concerned. The litany of corruption scandals unearthed during his stint has his fingerprints.
Other comments included;
Mwangi kiunjuri is busy parroting on TV instead of solving this simple problems for Kenyan farmers. People are shouting here #AsanteKiunjuri instead of asking the government tough questions as to fix these problems for ordinary citizens. Bure kabsaa pic.twitter.com/yzUbh8J6Sc
