The national government was quick to blame Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwah for the controversial food.
However, Ichungwah layer denied these claims and clarified that they only distribute food through churches and mosques and not on the roadside.
The MP accuses those behind the poisonous food of trying to malign their names.
Deputy President William Ruto also released a statement accusing those behind the poisonous food of engaging in political thuggery.
“The William Ruto Foundation has been donating food in Nairobi and its environs for months now without any incident. It is clear those behind the distribution of the contaminated food are engaging in political thuggery for other reasons.” reads part of the statement from Ruto’s communication secretary David Mugonyi.
A section of netizens has now claimed that the landrover belongs to Maina Kamanda.

How can Maina Kamanda dare to distribute poisonous food to the Kiambu residents just to turnish the name of Deputy president William Ruto. This vice is inhumane catastrophic and can only be done by incapacitated fellow. Even if it is for a political gain this is to much. pic.twitter.com/HyvJycakqt
