Former Cabinet secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri was fired by president Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday in fresh cabinet reshuffle.
The TangaTanga allied politician lost his grip on taming locusts before yanked from the docket.
What is in store for him come 2022?
Kiunjuri has been focal in matters politics and has gained popularity in Mt Kenya region over time.
With the drawing nearer if general elections, the Central region has no ‘big’ politician to take up from Uhuru Kenyatta and perhaps it is Kiunjuri’s time to shine.
His reply after being sacked was that he is “relieved” and burden eased on him.
He can now do politics 24/7 without fearing being judged or unswerable to anyone.
Kenyans think that Kiunjuri was the worst and clueless CS in history after the infamous Echesa.
Nanyuki residents, Kiunjuri’s home, also joined Kenyans in celebrating his sacking due to ‘killing’ of agriculture and food produce in the country.
For Ruto, it is a blow that his right hand man in the cabinet was axed and only time can tell if his fire will keep burning.
