(KDRTV) – President Uhuru Kenyatta has fired embattled Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri.
Kiunjuri was fired on Tuesday during Uhuru’s address to the nation from State House Mombasa on Tuesday. He has been replaced by Industrialization CS Peter Munya.
Kiunjuri has recently been on the limelight after he failed to deal with the locust menace in North Eastern Kenya. He asked Kenyans to take pictures of all insects they suspect to be locusts and share them on social media.
Because y'all refused to send photos of locusts…Kiunjuri has eaten the dust
