You Promised us a Tsunami But Delivered a Diaper, Kiunjuri in Trouble Over TSP

Kiunjuri, alongside a group of the new Social Party of Kenya interim officials, on Wednesday launched the new party, which is being seen as a new way of taking over the Mt Kenya from the limping Jubilee Party.
But lawyer Donald Kipkorir has dismissed the party, stating that it does not match what was expected from Kiunjuri, who, after being fired from the government, promised Kenyans a political tsunami.
In a tweet on Wednesday night, the lawyer observed that he expected more than a party whose symbol looks like a diaper, terming it the worst political party launch in history and a laughable one.

I didn’t know it was to launch a political party whose symbol looks like one for diapers ... it must be the worst launch of a political party in History .... I can’t stop laughing," he said.
His remarks were echoed by Alliance for Real Change (ARC) party leader Mohammed Abduba Dida, who argued that the party's yellow colours should be left for margarine advertisements.
He termed the launch a waste of talent and resources, dismissing Kiunjuri as a joker.
"Total waste of talent and resources. He can be an actor. This would be a really good margarine advert," said the former presidential aspirant.
