A photo of Deputy President William Ruto and Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has sparked uproar and it is all to do with the caption.
On Saturday, November 30, 2019, the controversial legislature took to social media and captioned the photo, pinpointing Ruto as President and he as Prime Minister.
The photo indicated that the two were perusing through a phone, with the item of discussion amusing Ruto who burst into laughter as Kuria stared. Kenyans swiftly reacted, wondering whether Kuria had joined the Ruto bandwagon with some questioning his allegiance to a man he has often referred to as his boss- President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“You (Kuria) a big No. We can’t have you, a hatred monger as a top leader in Kenya. If Ruto’s presidency would make you PM, I’d rather denounce supporting him. You don’t even deserve to be an MCA. No offence sir but just stick to the precincts of Gatundu, ” one Facebook user lashed out.
“Jubilee Government has failed to deliver. You have seen it cripple yet you are competing for a sit that currently is occupied,” another wondered.
However, some defended the MP, stating that he was just bitter with the BBI.
“Guys let us respect Kuria’s position. Remember the BBI recommends that the PM must be an elected MP. If Kenyatta wants to be a PM because he can’t vie for the president’s position anymore, he’ll have to vie for Gatundu South constituency to be an MP. The only option that Kuria has is to seek alliance from a different camp,”one Ole Nzuki averred.
The photo comes barely days after Kuria vowed to block a special task force in the offing and which is set to look into the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.
“I strongly suspect that what was released today was a Bonoko(fake) report. The actual one is the one that will be released by the Committee of Quacks that will be formed to ‘refine’ the draft. Stay woke, good people,” Kuria warned.
On Friday, November 29, Kuria was amongst leaders who blasted nominated legislator Maina Kamanda for his contemptioius aspersions towards Ruto.
This was after Kamanda, during a fundraiser in Kirinyaga, was heckled for not recognizing Ruto as a leader in Kenya.
“Maina Kamanda has gotten into an unfamiliar bedroom through the wrong side. Kirinyaga is a county you need to tread at a slow pace. However, am very sorry for what befell you. A man of your age and stature deserves more respect,” ironically posted Kuria.
In 2019, Kuria announced that he would vie for the presidency. In August 2019, he formed his own party- Transformation National Alliance Party which h is convinced would challenge the top parties and have an impact on the country’s politics.
