“What I saw and experienced at Pangani cells humbled me and made me to realize one thing, that we are all Kenyans regardless of where we come from or which political party we support,” he said.
“I have come to realize that we are all equal and a poor Kenyan in Kiambu or Nyeri has the same problems as a poor Kenyan in Kisumu and that we should not be divided as a nation because of politics,” he added.
Ngunjiri said that he respects all Kenyans and should not be viewed as a trouble maker or a tribalist.
“In my Constituency, you will find Kenyans from all walks of life and from all tribes and it cannot therefore be said that am a tribalist. I love and respect all Kenyans regardless of where they come from,” he said.
