Kiunjuri Throws Ruto Under The Bus, Asks Mt Kenya Residents to Vote Whoever They Want as President

Former Agriculture CS, Mwangi Kiunjuri

Mwangi Kiunjuri has raised eyebrows of many Kenyans after he asked Mt Kenya residents to vote for a president of their choice. The TSP leader said that whoever wins the president seat is not a Mt Kenya person and therefore there is no need for contention.

The Kenya Kwanza principal asked the residents to concentrate more with these other seats from the Governor all the way down to the MCA seat. He argued that these are the people who will be directly involved in the development of common citizens.

"Vote for whoever you want as president, but be very keen on who you elect on these other seats. Look at individual capabilities and don't just follow the political wave," stated Kiunjuri during an interview at Inooro TV. (Watch video from 38 min).

Kiunjuri, who is also the party leader of TSP, emphasized on electing capable leaders instead of voting just because of a party wave.

The politician also appeared to question the manner in which Kenya Kwanza is conducting it's campaigns especially in the Mt Kenya region. He accused UDA party of discriminating other smaller parties which are also part of Kenya Kwanza Alliance.

These sentiments by Kiunjuri have caused an uproar especially from the Kenya Kwanza supporters. Some people feel like the politician is not committed to the course. Kiunjuri is vying for the Laikipia East constituency parliamentary seat on a TSP party ticket. He will be contesting against Amin Deddy of UDA.
