Trade and Industrialization Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya was on Friday involved in an ugly spat with Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa in which he lashed at the MP stating that he is a political mandarin for hire with inspiration from Sugoi.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, an angry Munya took the Ichung’wah head-on after the MP tagged him while urging him to come to the rescue of farmers.

"These farmers will need school fees in January. They depend on their produce for the same. After the floods, there’s likely to be a drought. This produce could save lives, Peter Munya and Eugene Wamalwa," Ichung'wa wrote.

Apparently, the statement did not amuse Munya who responded swiftly, roping in his Agriculture counterpart Mwangi Kiunjuri and alleging that the MP’s inspiration is from Sugoi (Where DP Ruto’s home that is known to host delegations of politicians is situated).

“Ichung'wa is a rent seeker. Let him take his rent-seeking missions to Kiunjuri. Inspirations from Sugoi will not improve the dairy industry,” Munya responded.

The MP did not back down in his mission as he sought to put the record straight writing: “No waziri. I am a landlord and a representative of the people. I raise and address issues that are of concern to the people. If you could kindly do what you have been hired to do also and address the issue at hand leaving out your emotions and politicking."

The online exchange attracted the attention of Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen who sought to know what the CS meant by inspiration from Sugoi, ropping in Deputy President William Ruto.

"Waziri what do you mean by Sugoi? The deputy president's home?” Murkomen asked.

The public spat is the latest to bring out the rift in Jubilee that has been reported widely in the media with politicians insisting that it is fake news generated by the media.
