Well, Mr. Take a Photo of Locust and post on it Social Media, then the professionals at the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation statement the other in the media. This is the man who was reshuffled away or axed from the Kenyatta Cabinet on the 14th January 2020. Not that its deserving to sack CS Mwangi Kiunjuri.
But, his a long-term ally of Deputy President William Ruto. A man who help to intimidate witnesses for the ICC case of the ones in power. CS Kiunjuri was first the CS for Devolution and Planning for two years, until he was appointed on the 26th January 2018 as the CS for Agriculture and Irrigation. So, he got close to two years there too, but this time his out and no new deployment.
That is why his axed. The man of the Maize, Sugar, Rice, Tea and Coffee Cartels. As his helped them and been a cushion for them. Ensured their enrichment over the farmers, while they use the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) to give favourable deals between traders over farmers. Therefore, the cartels and inside trading benefits the traders, not the farmers.
That is why the golfer, the long time MP and CS didn’t do his work properly. He surely has enrichen himself as an MP. As he got over 700 million shillings over the years in Parliament. While, he has gotten connections with Ruto and others. His been part of dam scandals and others, where he surely gotten something sweet.
With the two years as CS of Agriculture, he most likely found some ways to his pockets too. That is why he will miss the bargain of being there. As he could ensure the rotting cereals, while importing UNGA, Sugar and whatnot else for the benefit of the cartels. Since, the pricing of the state would maybe not be beneficial of the ones there.
Now, the man has fallen, but not expect changes in the Ministry. That’s a fools hope at this point. There was no big change in Bett and will be little or nothing with the next. Only a new face and soon new scandals involving farming goods. Just await a sugar, tea, coffee or such scandal in a few months time. It is inevitable.
Kiunjuri might be a useless minister, but he knew how to keep the cartels mobilized and secure them funds. So, that they could oil the political machinery in parliament and the patrons of the industries. That is what it does and will continue. There are two many big-men eating of this plate to stop it. It is too much at stake, that is why the DCI and whatnot else doesn’t investigate it. They just let it go.
Now, Kiunjuri is let go. It is not a sad day, maybe for the Cartels, but they will get a new puppet under a new name and flag. This revolution will not be televised, but experienced in homes across the Republic. As the Maize, Sugar, Coffee, Tea and Rice will be used as a tool by the cartels, as there is no interest stopping them.
Not under Kiunjuri, not under Bett and whatever the new CS is. It will not happen, only go skin-deep if only so. Peace.
