The senior counsel also a member of the Jubilee party headed by President Uhuru Kenyatta on his twitter page querried if The Service Party (TSP), in its colour, symbol and design outlay might be feminine for the male dominated political arena.

"Is this party (in its colours, symbols and design outlay) too FEMININE for Kenya's ROUGH MASCULINE politics? @MarthaKarua @SylviaKangara @LindaMusumba," the Senior Counsel posted.

Ahmednasir's post came shortly after political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi dissed Kiunjuri's party on twitter.

The analyst also a supporter of President Uhuru Kenyatta, mocked the party branding it woolly, in other words confused.

Mutahi, who claimed Kiunjuri was his friend, cleverly mocked him further saying the party was destined to fail, because the party colour yellow was the colour of withering things.

The political analyst however congratulated the former CS for inventing the Party.

"I CONGRATULATE @Hon_Kiunjuri for INVENTING a party. #TheServiceParty. Because he is MY FRIEND, I will NOT diss him. But if he was NOT MY FRIEND, I would have told him that the NAME is WOOLLY. And that YELLOW is the COLOUR of WITHERING things! But I will NOT say this to my FRIEND," posted Mutahi Ngunyi.

Kiunjuri launched his party today afternoon where he said his party will serve as a platform for Kenyans especially those on the grassroots, committed to equality in its service delivery..

He claimed his party will not only be the voice of the common Mwananchi but also approach politics in a different way.

The former CS said that among the things the will address are affordable healthcare, food insecurity, unemployment and clean water.

Kiunjuri further said that he believes the party has a chance to ensure that the changes the country will experience over the next decade are not only fair and inclusive, but are also positive and sustainable.

He said the party in the past few months has been recruiting members in a bid to influence the government in its decision making.

The party has so far gained 220 followers on its purported twitter account and among the 12 people following the party as of now are Deputy President William Ruto and his allies, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, Ousted National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and former Statehouse Aide Dennis Itumbi.
