Saturday June 29, 2019-Agriculture Cabinet Secretary, Mwangi Kiunjuri was on Saturday forced to run for his dear life after two political groupings clashed during his meeting in Gatitu, Nyeri County.
The political groupings one led by Nyeri Town MP, Ngunjiri Wambugu and the other led by Gatitu MCA , Simon Muturi clashed forcing Kiunjuri and his team to scamper for safety.
Kiunjuri was in the area to launch a Sh 260 million water project funded by the national government and to donate avocado seedling to residents.
Speaking after the chaos, Kiunjuri warned the locals against causing chaos and disrupting the meeting. "Every leader attending this meeting should be respected," he said.
It is reported that political brokers from both sides spent Friday evening organising hecklers.
A security meeting held Friday to discuss the concerns appeared to have yielded no fruit.
Ngunjiri admitted that the existence of political differences between him and the MCA and termed it normal.
Ngunjiri is a gang leader of team Kieleweke while Muturi is Team Tanga Tanga point man in Nyeri county.
Tanga Tanga supports Deputy President William Ruto’s presidential quest while team Kieleweke is led by old men who are against Ruto’s bid in 2022.
