Former CS Mwangi Kiunjuri launches new political party ahead of 2022 elections
Former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri has launched a new political outfit dubbed The Service Party of Kenya (TSP) ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Kiunjuri, who has kept a low profile after he was fired from government in a Cabinet reshuffle by President Uhuru Kenyatta five months ago, says TSP will be a “grassroots national party” pushing for the interests of the ordinary citizen.
“TSP members and officials have carefully listened to Kenyans and have made the commitment to bring a platform that will be unequivocal about service delivery to our people. The Service Party of Kenya want to be a grassroots national party that will not only be the voice of mwananchi wa kawaida but also that will approach politics differently,” said Kiunjuri in press briefing in Nairobi on Wednesday.
The former CS highlighted that the party will build its agenda prioritising issues such as food insecurity, unemployment, poor access to the basics of life including affordable healthcare, clean water and a general feeling of abandonment.
He said, above all, The Service Party of Kenya will be pushing the government to provide interventions on the adverse effects of COVID-19 before any political agenda.
“TSP believes that Kenya will change dramatically over the next decade. We have the opportunity to put together and ensure those changes are fair, inclusive, sustainable and will positively impact our shared destiny,” said Kiunjuri.
