Gatundu South Member of Parliament (MP) Moses Kuria has asserted that he and among other political leaders whom he did not mentioned aided President Uhuru Kenyatta secure the victory in the last 2017 general elections through hesitant means.
Speaking during the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party’s National Delegates Conference (NDC) held in Kasarani yesterday, Kuria accused President Kenyatta of sidelining Deputy President William Ruto and his allies in spite of being the team that helped him secure the County’s top seat under Jubilee government in the 2013 and 2017 general elections.
“Kuna Wengine wanasema ati kura ya mlima itagawanywa…. Mweshimiwa Ann Waiguru, Mweshimiwa Rigathi Gachagwa, Mweshimiwa Ichungwa, Mweshimiwa Governor Muthomi Njuki, Mweshimiwa Senator Linturi, Mweshimiwa Wamatangi, Mweshimiwa Wamaua, Mweshimiwa Alice Wahome, Mweshimiwa Faith Gitau, Sisi ndio tulikua tunashindia Uhuru kura na sisi ndio tulikuwa tunamwibia kura,” Said Kuria.
He continued: “Akili yote iliyoweka Uhuru kwenye kiti yote iki hapa , ile iki iko Azimio ni ni miili peke yake,”
The MP who is also the Chama Cha Kazi party leader and eying for the Kiambu County Governor’s seat said that the vote rich Mount Kenya region will unanimously support Ruto just the way they supported the UhuRuto Government.
“Wengine wanajigamba ati wao ndio walileta Kenya pamoja , nobody brings Kenya together like William Ruto,” Kuria Lamented. “You might be a good leader, politician and party leader but one thing I am sure you are a good human being and that’s makes a big difference. Supporting a good human being is more important than supporting a good leader because we can take your word,” he added.
This comes about a month ago when Muranga women representative Sabina Chege also claimed there was rigging.
“Kule central, nimeskia wengine wakisema ati tuliwaibia , kuna ka ukweli kidogo,” Sabina Chege said
Moses Kuria who was to appear on Citizen TV Interview last night together with Jubilee Party deputy chairman David Murathee failed to appear and instead sent Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro to represent him who failed too for the interview.
Murathe while reacting to Kuria’s refusal to attend the interview said the Gatundu MP knew he would expose him.
Murathe said Kuria has a history of engaging in election malpractice since he joined politics and was afraid that he would be exposed.
“I was really exited to engage Moses this evening, you know he chickened out , and I don’t know why he chickened out. He knew some of the issues we were going to bring out tonight to expose the wave,” Murathe lamented.
He added: “Moses got into parliament through a by election. Moses went through a nomination process of TNA. One of the stations that Moses participated garnered 4000 votes in a station with 800 votes, so this is something I think they used to,”
