Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri denies writing resignation letter

Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri on Thursday night angrily disowned a letter circulating on social media that purported to notify President Uhuru Kenyatta of his resignation from the Cabinet.

Kiunjuri took to social media where he accused unidentified malicious people of penning the letter with an ill motive.

He added that he had called on the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to probe the individuals behind his impersonation.

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. 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 Directorate of Criminal Investigations - DCI, to investigate and take the necessary action,” Kiunjuri stated.

State of the Nation Address

The CS spoke a day after President Kenyatta, in his State of the Nation Address, sought to assure public officials linked to various corruption scandals that they would be accorded a fair hearing.

The President Kenyatta said he would not fire officials based on media reports but would await due process to be undertaken by the relevant agencies, adding that officials who are charged in court will be required to resign.

Kiunjuri has in the past one month recorded several statements with the DCI over the controversial Sh21 billion Kimwarer and Arror dam scandal.

Other CSs who have been summoned by the top sleuth include Henry Rotich of Treasury, Peter Munya of Industrialisation, Adan Mohamed of Trade, and Eugene Wamalwa of Devolution.
