Hon John Paul Mwirigi was using matatus to parliament in 2017.It was his first time to be elected as the MP.Mwirigi,who was humble, didn’t have even a coin to buy a car.Uhuru sympathized and gifted him a brand new Prado. The MP was excited until he cried.
Last week, Agriculture CS Munya and the MP exchanged words in a meeting in Meru.Mwirigi was unable to control his anger when the CS reminded him of the car Uhuru gifted him. After the meeting, he asked Uhuru to take back his car if he thinks it’s the one that makes him to breath.
Here is the statement from the MP”
“First and foremost, let me thank His Excellency the President for gifting me a car in the year 2017. I am much humbled now as I was then.Secondly, I wish to appreciate the President for gifting me wholeheartedly without expecting anything in return.
Now, recently a number of leaders have been castigating me claiming that by supporting DP Ruto, I am disrespecting the president. I will be very categorical on this issue. I have never insulted or disrespected the president in anyway and I am not planning to do so at any time. But note, my allegiance to His Excellency DP William Ruto will not change at all.
Meanwhile, if at all CS Munya is speaking for the president,(since he as done this repeatedly in different occasions), I may, for the sake of my peace of mind and independence consider returning the gift. I will not bear the blackmail by the CS anymore. And, If the attacks are an orchestrated plan to co-erce me to change my decision, well it will be an exercise in futility”
