Former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri has reacted after he was fired by the Head of State. Kiunjuri said that he expected to be fired and he was not surprised by President Kenyatta’s move to fire him from the Cabinet on Tuesday.
Regardless of the circumstances, he says he leaves with his head held high and this is just a minor hurdle which he will overcome.
“Make no mistake I am not going anywhere, I thank God I have held firm and I am in good health. And remember for any action there is a reaction. You keep it cool, I keep it cool,” he said.
“To my supporters I urge you to remain calm. Be confident and do not cry for me. You all know that I am resilient, we shall overcome. I have faced many challenges in my life’s journey,” Kiunjuri added.
President Kenyatta announced the cabinet reshuffle during his State of Nation address at State House, Mombasa on Tuesday morning. Many have interpreted the President’s move as being politically instigated.
