"Those people who are making noise have been elected to represent the interests of Kenyans who suffer when fertilisers are stolen or when they cannot sell their maize," Kiunjuri said.
He wondered why political leaders have been claiming that the government is not going after the big fish yet the general manager of the board among other members of management have been interdicted.
"We will sack them all. Every community has leaders of integrity that can replace those who want to run down government institutions. They will all be replaced with those who can work," he said.
"I am a politician, trader and former teacher. I donât know why they think they can intimidate me into not doing the work that I have been appointed to do," Kiunjuri added.
