What Former Agriculture CS Kiunjuri Revealed Over presidential Candidates Assurance In Mt. Kenya

According to the sources the rift between Deputy President William Ruto and former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri seems to have widened after The Service Party (TSP) boss came out to indirectly throw jabs at the DP. Speaking on Saturday at Siakago village in Mbeere North constituency Embu county, Kiunjuri said there is no current presidential candidate who is assured of the Mt Kenya vote in 2022.

According to Kiunjuri, any presidential contender seeking the area's support must commit to a series of constitutional changes during his or her first 100 days in office as a means of ensuring the region an equitable share of the national cake and representation in parliament.

"Nobody should claim to be the kingpin of Mt Kenya region. How can you declare yourself the region's kingpin when you do not have the votes yet. If you are looking for a bride, you should humble yourself first," he stated.

He asked locals to carefully examine the pledges made by various candidates, noting that their votes should represent their numerical political strength.

In what was perceived as an oblique attack on DP William Ruto, who recently claimed to be the gateway to the mountain, Kiunjuri dismissed such claims, stressing that all candidates should humble themselves when seeking their support.

He went on to criticize Ruto for his apparent opposition to the Building Bridges Initiative BBI, stating he couldn't profess to be against the creation of positions while doing nothing to address the one man, one shilling, one vote component.
