Mwangi kiunjuri has been shown the door by President Uhuru Kenyatta

In the recent cabinet reshuffle by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mwangi Kiunjuri has been dropped as the Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture.

Critics said Kiunjuri had been courting his sacking after recent pronouncements against the much-hyped Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

“He (Kiunjuri) keeps talking about 2022 which the President, who is his boss, has warned about. He is talking of a government that will be created as though he does not believe in the current one in which he serves. He is basically preparing ground for crying foul when he is finally sacked,” Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu told the People Daily.
