Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri has expressed his dislike for State jobs, especially government ministerial jobs.

Speaking on Radio Jambo on Wednesday evening, the vocal lawmaker revealed that he will never accept a presidential appointment to head any of the cabinet positions.

Kimani said that he is very comfortable directly serving Kenyans as an elected leader and would openly reject any opportunity to serve in the cabinet.

"I do not want and will never accept to be appointed to any position by either the president or any other authority. Even a ministerial position would be rejected," he said.

He based the decision on the alleged graft scandals being uncovered in several ministries in the national and county governments, the latest one being the Sh21 billion Arror and Kimwarer dam sagas in the National Treasury.

The vocal MP said he would rather stay away and avoid the frustrations that come with such situations.

"I would rather be elected and fired by my own people when they feel I am not doing my job properly," added the parliamentarian.

The lawmaker has recently been criticising President Uhuru Kenyatta, accusing him o sidelining the Mt Kenya region in terms of development.
