Ex-CS Kiunjuri makes abrupt U-turn, sides with Uhuru, Raila

Former Agriculture CS and The Service Party leader Mwangi Kiunjuri has surprised many after siding with President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

On Sunday, November 29, Kiunjuri called for the proposed constitutional amendments through the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

Speaking during a church service in Laikipia, the former CS celebrated the amendments saying that it has addressed majority of concerns raised by Kenyans.

He lauded among others the allocation of one extra constituency to Laikipia, his home county.

TSP party, he said, will engage its members and give way forward.

“We are looking at this draft bill, study it, engage our people and we shall give our verdict. We are very clear on all those issues that are contentious,” he stated.

“If those issues have been addressed, we shall sit down as leaders… We already agreed that the MPs who are coming should not be flower girls. They should come with money for their constituencies … Like Laikipia we are getting an extra seat, that extra seat will come with money,” he added.

Kiunjuri unveiled the TSP party in June this year months after he was dropped from cabinet unceremoniously.
