‘Locusts came to Kenya to get Mwangi Kiunjuri fired’: KOT react to sacking
Mwangi Kiunjuri’s last press conference as Agriculture Cabinet Secretary four days ago sparked controversy.
He had asked Kenyans to take photos of locusts so that the Government would authenticate whether they were genuine.
“If you see any insect that you suspect could be a locust, take a picture and post on social media so we can confirm for you what insect it really is,” he said.
On Tuesday, these words seem to haunt him as Kenyans on Twitter likened him to the insects after he was sacked from the Cabinet.
Below are some of the responses to his sacking:
“Mwangi Kiunjuri has been fired by Despot Uhuru Kenyatta because he refused to join the Organized Mafia’s #BBINonsense whose PRINCIPAL agenda is helping Uhuru Kenyatta cling to power. Uhuru has CONSTRUCTIVELY dismissed @WilliamsRuto, too – in violation of the Constitution,” Miguna Miguna said on Twitter.
“Locusts came to Kenya to get Mwangi Kiunjuri fired!” Ahmed Mohammed said.
Mukami Mungai added: “Mwangi Kiunjuri is the locust that he told us was supposed to be sprayed? Finally, President Uhuru Kenyatta has sprayed him to death. Out of the Cabinet. Viva!”
Bravin Yuri opined that: “It took Locusts for President Uhuru Kenyatta to sack Mwangi Kiunjuri. Never underestimate the Power of Nature & small people working together. Seems Pharaoh Listened to the Plague after all. Mwangi Kiunjuri is the Worst CS ever.”
