Munya explains why Mwangi Kiunjuri was not invited to La Mada Hotel meetings

Kiunjuri is one of the most prominent CSs from Mt Kenya

President Uhuru Kenyatta, accompanied by Governors Peter Munya, Kinuthia Mbugua and Devolution CS Mwangi Kiunjuri in Naivasha.

Trade and Industrialization CS Peter Munya on Tuesday evening explained why Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri was invited to a meeting of senior government officials held at La Mada Hotel.

Munya said the meetings were attended by senior government officials from Mt Kenya who were involved in specific issues raised by political leaders in a meeting addressed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to the CS, MPs and other elected leaders complained that they were unable to access some CSs and other senior government officials and also needed come intervention in provision of specific government assistance.

He was not part of the meetings because I did not invite him (Kiunjuri). He was not involved in the matters raised because maybe he is accessible to the MPs and most of the agriculture-related issues related to coffee and tea cooperatives which are under my docket,” Munya said in an interview with a local TV station.

ICT CS Joe Mucheru

Asked if there were more ICT-related matters than those affecting the Agriculture Ministry, Munya said ICT CS Joe Mucheru was brought on board after concerns of inaccessibility.

The former Meru Governor said he read politics in the complaint made by Deputy William Ruto – although he admitted that he had not informed the DP os the meetings.

I did not inform the DP because I did not see the need. It was a meeting dealing with specific issues raised by people from a specific region where he doesn’t come from. But it is not that we deliberately kept it a secret, if he had asked me, I would have explained to him,” Munya added.

The interview came amid a probe by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation on a letter circulated on social media that formed the basis for the complaint raised by the deputy president.
