Igembe South Member of Parliament John Paul Mwirigi now says he may return Toyota Prado gifted to him by President Uhuru Kenyatta in September 2017.

Mwirigi accused Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya of using the gift to blackmail him into supporting the President instead of Deputy President William Ruto.

"Meanwhile, if at all CS Munya is speaking for the President,(since he has done this repeatedly on different occasions), I may, for the sake of my peace of mind and independence consider returning the gift," Mwirigi wrote on his Facebook page.

He added: "I will not bear the blackmail by the CS anymore. And, If the attacks are an orchestrated plan to coerce me to change my decision, well it will be an exercise in futility."

The MP is a fierce supporter of DP Ruto and he intends to defend his seat on United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party.

"Now, recently a number of leaders have been castigating me claiming that by supporting DP Ruto, I am disrespecting the president.

"I will be very categorical on this issue. I have never insulted or disrespected the President in any way and I am not planning to do so at any time," he stated.

He, however, thanked the President for the kind gesture saying he will forever be grateful to him.

"I am much humbled now as I was then. Secondly, I wish to appreciate the President for gifting me wholeheartedly without expecting anything in return," he said.
