Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri has picked up another fight with Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu amid an ongoing row with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The parliamentarian on Thursday took issue with Waititu for allegedly threatening him during a press conference in Nairobi on Wednesday.

Waititu joined a group of former Central Kenya leaders in defending the president's track record. 

They also bashed Ngunjiri for questioning his political moves. 

In an interview on Radio Jambo Thursday morning, Ngunjiri sought to get even with the governor, terming him a failed leader without any moral authority to engage him.

"Huyu Waititu pia ajue mambo yake yako jikoni. Anaponitusi akumbuke yeye ameshindwa na kazi na wananchi wanamgoja ifikapo 2022 (he has failed and should know that his days in power are numbered)," said the lawmaker.

Ngunjiri also took issue with the team of ex-leaders led by former Gatanga lawmaker Peter Kenneth, terming them losers who are not in any position to represent anybody.

He bashed Kenneth, questioning his sudden support for Uhuru despite having defied him twice in the recent past.

This he based on Kenneth's presidential bid against Uhuru in 2013 and when he challenged Governor Mike Sonko of the Jubilee Party for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat in 2017.

"Yeye ndiye aliyekuwa anampinga rais hapo mbeleni, iweje tena leo anamuunga mkono (its suspicious that he is again on the president's side after defying him just recently)," he added.
