Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri has accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of using him as a scapegoat to evade questions regarding unfulfilled electoral promises he made to the people of Bahati during his visit yesterday.
Ngunjiri a fierce critic of president Uhuru Kenyatta and an opposer of the handshake says that the president chose dwell on him instead of focusing on people-centered issues.
Ngunjri also stated that he will not shy away from criticising the president adding that the constitution gives him the mandate as an MP to oversight the executive.
“The President said that I should be told to let him do his job while I concentrate on my duties as an MP. I would like to remind the President respectfully that as an MP I am mandated to represent the voice of the people and also oversight the executive,” he stated.
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday visited Bahati Constituency and accused him of insulting him.
Uhuru further chided Ngunjiri for working against the handshake adding that he will not be deterred from working towards uniting the country.
The Bahati MP however denied all these claims stating that his problem with the handshake and the BBI was because it was being hijacked by certain individuals to drive their 2022 Agenda.
“My issue is that the unity being pushed by the President and the former Prime Minister is marred with a lot of insincerity. Instead of building bridges, it appears some sections are stonewalling and building dams,” he said.
