Gatundu South Member of parliament Moses Kuria has finally broken his silence speaking about receiving bribery and was willing to return it.
Speaking to the BBC during an interview, Kuria stated that him together with other MPs received 100,000 each to ouster the then leader of majority Aden Duale from his position.
The Garissa Town Member of parliament was ejected from his lucrative position and replaced by his Kipipiri counterpart Amos Kimunya in a party purge that targeted DP Ruto allied leaders.
“When the new Majority Leader was appointed because they were not elected. We went to the majority leader’s office and received a $1000 (Ksh100,000) gift,” he disclosed to the international media house.
The vocal legislator added that it was something usual while they are wanted to front the government agenda.
Kuria also alleged that the lawmakers were also bribed last week on Tuesday May 6, 2021 to pass the constitutional amendment bill.
Reiterating the same sentiments, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen stated that it was something obvious, and Kuria should not be put to task to substantiate.
“Why is Kuria being asked to substantiate the obvious? The art of feigning ignorance is the most perfected form of hypocrisy in Kenya,” he challenged.
Kuria continued that he did not know if the money came from the tax payers coffers, but was willing to return it.
“I’m not sure if the money belonged to Kenyan taxpayers, but I’ll be refunding the most recent that I can recall to the office of the leader of the majority,” he added.
The DP Ruto ardent supported also claimed that none of his colleagues would admit it and come out in the open for fear of victimization.
“These things don’t happen on camera, and I don’t expect them to admit it, but they do happen in the majority leader’s office,” Kuria added.
