Sacked Agriculture Cabinet Secretary, Mwangi Kiunjuri has reacted to his removal from office saying that the sack did not come as a surprise to him.

The sacking took place yesterday after President Uhuru Kenyatta made changes in his cabinet as former trade CS Peter Munya takes over docket with immediate effect.

“I have a lot to offer. I will continue to serve faithfully in other capacities. Make no mistake, I am not going anywhere,” said Kiunjuru during a press conference on Tuesday evening.

“I have gone through a difficult year that occasionally threatened my energy. Only God knows what it (the humiliation) has made me feel,” he said.

Kiunjuri was publicly lectured by President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2018 during the height of the maize scandal.

In September 2018, President Uhuru publicly warned Kiunjuri over irregular payments made to maize cartels through the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB).

Uhuru swore to punish ministry officials if they failed to pay maize farmers, who had supplied grains to the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB).

Kiunjuri added that he will keep a low profile but warned against provocations saying “for every action, there will be a reaction and when God closes one door, he opens another one.

Despite his tribulations, Kiunjuri told reporters that he was proud of his achievements in the Agriculture docket and he was leaving with his head held high.

On the other hand, residents of Kirinyaga County are happy with the sucking of Kiunjuri together with some leaders as they accused him of running down the Agriculture Sector and even accused the former CS of playing politics instead of working.
