According to Kiunjuri, who was speaking on a live interview at Inooro TV's, Ndurumeni show, on the night of 24th June 2020, he litariated that he does not support DP Ruto blindly.
He Narrated a story of how DP Ruto once, when he was a CS, approached him and requested why he (Kiunjuri) was not mentioning him in public speeches. Moments later, President Kenyatta also approached him after requisition from the DP.
According to Kiunjuri, mentioning the DP during the then times was not a very important issue to him, as the DP was selling the agendas of President Kenyatta. However, Kiunjuri explained that it was President Kenyatta himself who asked him to be mentioning DP Ruto, and so he started.
Moments later, Mwangi Kiunjuri was the first person to face the wrath of President Uhuru Kenyatta's Pudge in Jubilee against all allies of DP Ruto, after the president sacked him from the government on allegations that he was allied to the DP, mong other reasons behind his Ouster.
However, Mwangi Kiunjuri vowed not to relent on his stand on the DP on various grounds:
He said that when the President was forcing him to support DP Ruto and mention him in public meetings, he was in good relationship. Later, when the President changed his mind, he did not tell anyone what the DP had done to deserve humiliation.
In memory of ethical differences and 2007-2008 clashes, Kiunjuri stated that he comes from the Rift Valley region,.which suffers the first wound of the cuts of ethnic wars. He identified the Luo Communities which have been historically enemies with the Mount Kenya communities. However, he did not want Kenyans to forget the previous history of the relationship between the Kikuyus and the Kalenjin community.
In his opinion, ignoring and frustrating DP Ruto would extend to a point of creating enmity between the Kikuyus and Kalenjin, a fact that would bring a repeat of 2007. This is something Kiunjuri cannot allow to see coming.
