Twitter was on fire after President Uhuru Kenyatta dropped Mwangi Kiunjuri as Agriculture Cabinet Secretary in the new raft of changes.
Kiunjuri has been on the headlines ever since locusts invaded some parts of the country and netizens believe his failure to control them was one of the reasons why he was fired.
He is also the only Minister from Mt Kenya that has been seen to be supporting Deputy President William Ruto.
Also fired was Industrialization CS Adan Mohammed.

From the Mwangi Kiunjuri’s Sacking I’ve learned that no one should ever under estimate the power of locust 😂 pic.twitter.com/UpKXmEHSKV

Mwangi Kiunjuri: If you see an insect you suspect to be a locust, take its picture and post on social media and we will tell you if it’s a locust or not.
