In a viral video ,Kenyatta initiated a vivid conversation with the legislator’s constituents after making a stopover in the area.
“Today I decided to come and listen to what you are saying because if you listen to him on TV (Kimani Ngunjiri) and the radio, you will think the constituency is burning. Have I made a mistake?” Kenyatta wondered as the constituents distanced themselves from their MP’s remarks.
The Jubilee Party leader then requested the constituents to urge their MP, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, to focus on development rather than insults.
“Our mandate is to do what we are supposed to do and I am very pleased by what the MCA (an MCA who addressed the crowd before Kenyatta) has said because he knows his work,” the president asserted.
Ngunjiri, a staunch supporter of Deputy President William Ruto and his stake in the 2022 presidential race, has been at loggerheads with Uhuru over his handshake with ODM leader Raila Odinga.
He was recently summoned to the Rift Valley Directorate of Criminal Investigations offices and ordered to surrender his firearms after the gun licence he got in 1993 was revoked.He was also stripped off his bodyguards and grilled over remarks he made at a press conference that Ruto was kicked out of a government house in Mombasa early this year.
