Kang'ata Finally Lets it Out, Names The Two Powerful Men Who Might Have Leaked His Letter to Uhuru

Ousted Senate Majority Chief Whip Irungu Kang'ata has opened up on the happenings that preceded the leakage of his letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta on the popularity of BBI in the Central Kenya region.

The Murang'a senator was earlier in the year under attack from allies of Uhuru over the letter, in which he cautioned Uhuru, the BBI cofounder, that the initiative is largely unwanted in his (Uhuru) Mt Kenya backyard.

He was on Tuesday sacked from the Senate leadership job and his seat given to his Kiambu counterpart Kimani Wamatangi, his crime being the manner in which he addressed the president, leading to the leakage of the letter.

Speaking in an interview on Citizen TV's NewsNight show later the same day, he denied leaking the letter to members of the public, saying that it was a confidential communication to the President, which was, however, copied to two other people.

The two, he revealed, were Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju and Senate Majority Leader Samuel Poghisio, who, according to him, could have been the ones who made details of the letter public.

"I was addressing the letter to the president but I also copied it to Raphael Tuju and Samuel Poghisio. I don't know if they leaked it but it is also a possibility. All the same, I regret the leakage, it was never my intention," said the soft spoken politician.

He added that his ouster hasn't affected him, given that it comes as his payment for saying the truth and telling the president what most of the people around him fear telling him.

Kang'ata said that he remains calm and collected even as he now losses the privileges that come with the position, hence the reason why he has not been seen defending himself or attacking the party.

"If expressing my personal opinion and reporting what people are saying regarding the BBI is wrong then I am guilty as charged. If all saying the truth is wrong then I am also guilty as charged. I was only saying the truth and that is why I am calm and collected," he added.

He maintained that he has never, at any point, declared the BBI bad, stating that he still believes that there are good parts of the constitutional amendment push.
