Igembe South Member of Parliament, Paul Mwirigi, has said he is more than prepared to return the vehicle he was gifted by President Uhuru Kenyatta when he won the parliamentary seat in 2017.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, Mwirigi said he won’t be scared by the Head of State’s allies on the guise that he bought him a vehicle.
Mwirigi accused Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya for using the gift from the president to coerce him to change his position in the coming presidential election.
“Let me thank His Excellency the President for gifting me a car in the year 2017. I am much humbled now as I was then. Secondly, I wish to appreciate the President for gifting me wholeheartedly without expecting anything in return,” Mwirigi said.
He further said a few leaders have been blasting him, asserting that by supporting DP William Ruto, he was disregarding the president.
“If at all CS Munya is speaking for the president, (since he has done this repeatedly on different occasions), I may, for the sake of my peace of mind and independence, consider returning the gift,” he said.
Mwirigi said he won’t bear the blackmil by the CS any longer, and if the attacks are a coordinated to coerce him to support Raila Odinga, then that is an exercise in futility.
