The outspoken member of Kieleweke group has started that the 1.8 Billion which was paid to fraudsters by Kiunjuri is among the 4 Billion which was remitted by the Government to maize farmers.

He has gone ahead to state that the Ministry’s coffers is supposed to have 12 billion which was set to buy maize from farmers but he is afraid that the money might be missing.

Kutuny has since called for the resignation of CS Mwangi Kiunjuri to allow investigative agencies to determine how the money was fraudulently paid.

Tuna ushahidi kuwa waziri aliivunja sheria na kuwa alienda kinyume ya ushauri ya taasisi hii. Tunaomba waziri na katibu mkuu ndani ya wizara yake wajiuzulu ili nafasi ipatikane na uchunguzi ufanyike.” Kutuny said.

However Kiunjuri has termed Kutuny’s remarks as gross insubordination. Kiunjuri has further claimed that Kutuny’s remarks are aimed at misleading the nation because they are not true.

CS Kiunjuri went ahead to state that the Ministry of Agriculture has all the data concerning all the payments.

“For you to have comprehensive data you need to talk to everybody, everybody in the industry. We have the data and we have all the information”  Kiunjuri stated.

This comes as CS Mwangi Kiunjuri declared that the government will not import maize from Mexico this year.

“Even if we were to import maize from Mexico, it would take 47-60 days and another 136 days to offload the maize from the ship at the Port of Mombasa,” he said.
