Mwangi Kiunjuri lost his job as the Agriculture Cabinet Secretary during a cabinet reshuffle by the president earlier today.
He was replaced by Mr. Munya as the new Agriculture cabinet secretary.
Mwangi’s last press conference concerning locusts stirred controversy. He proposed that citizens to take pictures of insects they thought were locusts and post on social media for confirmation.
“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,” the former cabinet secretary said.
Locusts have invaded some parts of Kenya and were recently spotted in Meru county.
These sentiments came back to haunt him today as he got sacked from the cabinet secretary post.
Below are some of the reactions KOT made.
“Locusts came to Kenya to get Mwangi Kiunjuri fired!” Ahmed Mohammed said.
“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 commented.
Mukami Mungai opined: “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 thought 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.”
We will all remember Mwangi Kiunjuri as the “Locust CS” in the future. #UhuruAddress
