Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior has thrown a jab at embattled Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri after he was fired by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Kilonzo chided Kiunjuri after he asked Kenyans to take pictures of locusts and sent to him in the fight against the insects. The senator warned Kenyans against the move, saying it would land them in hot soup in reference to what has happened to Kiunjuri.
“Take pictures of locusts or grasshoppers at your own peril,” he tweeted.
“Locusts are mobile. We can attack a swarm in motion but it is a difficult task. The best option is to attack them when they are immobile-in the evening, at night.”
“If you see any insect that you suspect could be a locust, take a picture and post on social media so we can confirm for you what insect it really is,” he remarked.
President Kenyatta announced the sacking of Kiunjuri in his state of the nation address on Tuesday.
He said that his government is not ready to tolerate sideshows at the expense of development.
He promised to ensure every Kenyans benefits from the fruits of independence as long as he remains in government.
