Agriculture cabinet secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri has disowned letter circulating online that he is about to resign from the Cabinet.
On facebook post-Kiunjuri said that he hasn’t it tendered her resignation and people should treat the allegation just like a romour.
“My attention has been drawn to a FAKE letter circulating in the social media purporting that I have resigned, Treat it with the CONTEMPT it deserves,” he said.
He accused desperate people who are trying to kill his political career.
“It is the work of a DESPERATE person who for reasons known to himself, would go to the lengths of forging and posting a letter of this kind. I have asked DCI to investigate and take the necessary action,” he said.
Early this year , Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter and Moiben MP Silas Kipkoech Tiren had asked Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri to resign over the Sh740 million maize scandal.
There has been pressure from various quarters, including the National Assembly, to name the culprits.
During the state of the nation address, President Uhuru confirmed that he is under pressure to fire corrupt civil servants and political appointees.
“I must, however, caution that the pursuit of the corrupt will be undertaken strictly within the remits of the law – and not through vigilante justice and pitchfork protest. Though media narratives rally our resolve as they should, our actions will not be based on condemnation before one has been heard. The cornerstone of our democracy is the rule of law, and the principle of due process is a critical anchor.” Uhuru said.
Former Kiambu governor William Kabogo has asked Uhuru not to hesitate to fire the corrupt government officials who are tainting his reputation.
Kabogo states that the corruption scandals have tainted the Jubilee government as incompetent.
