“We want to be open and accountable. I will not employ anybody based on my relationship with them but merit,” Wanjiku said.

“We are on a mission to dramatically scale up agriculture productivity and ensure that every Kipipiri farmer will contribute to sustainable economic growth by contributing to adequate and affordable food, generating greater incomes, and producing the raw materials required by the agro-industrial and manufacturing value chains., “she said.
She also urged the Judiciary to work with other arms of the government to speed up the completion of cases to deter corruption suspects from enjoying the wealth they acquired illegally.
“Corruption cases should have a timeline just like election petitions,” she said.
She further expressed confidence that President William Ruto is the right person to fight corruption in Kenya adding that the bottom-up economic model fronted by Ruto will empower Kenyans economically.
