Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri has staged a demonstration in Nakuru town to hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta after he made remarks on Monday which have irked a section of Jubilee supporters.
The president on Monday told off those mounting pressure on him to consider his home turf region of Mt. Kenya for development.
" Kila eneo linahitaji maendeleo katika inchi hii...Waambie hao washenzi waachane na mimi (every region in this country deserves development projects...tell those fools to leave me alone) he said during the launch of Mama Ngina Waterfront in Mombasa.
The remarks seem to have aggrieved the Bahati MP who opted to stage a demo to express his anger against the president.
“People in the Jua Kali sector in Nairobi and some millers in Nakuru and other parts of Rift Valley are crying. This government has not economically and politically helped members of the Kikuyu community to prosper," he said.
Ngunjiri had on Sunday, January 6, 2019, asked President Uhuru to resign for 'failing to provide leadership in the Jubilee party'.
He accused the president of allowing some party officials and leaders to attack Deputy President William Ruto regarding 2022 succession politics.
