Nyeri Town MP Wambugu NgUnjiri is now being blamed for the chaos that erupted in his back yard after Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri was treated to a harsh reception by Tens of rowdy youth, comprising boda boda riders in Nyeri Town, on Saturday morning.
Kiunjuri was presiding over the launch of Riamukurwi Water Project in Gatitu, Nyeri Town, when the unruly group, in the company of area MP Ngunjiri Wambugu and Woman Representative Rahab Mukami, arrived and immediately took control of the programme.
The impasse lasted close to 30 minutes.
Ainakboi MP William Chepkut has termed MP Ngunjiri has ‘brainless.’ The outspoken Legislator has gone ahead to state that Ngunjiri is the one who invited Kiunjuri, so heckling him was just unwarranted.
“Mp Ngunjiri invites CS Kiunjuri to his event. Then organise for him to be heckled. Brainless!” Chepkut retorted.
It is alleged that Wambugu, who is affiliated to President Kenyatta’s faction of the now-divided Jubilee outfit, did not want Kiunjuri, a perceived William Ruto ally, to “convince his constituents into supporting the deputy president’s 2022 presidential bid”.
Ngunjiri, however, said the Agriculture minister did not consult him before coming to his turf to launch the water project.
