Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has dismissed claims by a section of leaders from Deputy President William Ruto’s camp accusing him of being a deep state mole.
While speaking in Kigumo, Murang’a County on Tuesday, August 24, 2021, Kuria stated that he cannot be a mole for an outgoing President who will be leaving the office after 2022 Presidential election.
He warned his colleagues in the DP Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party to stop pointing fingers at him.
“I’m not going to stand here and allow someone to accuse me of being deep state. President Uhuru Kenyatta pronounced that he’s going home. So how can I be deep state for someone who is going home? Let’s change the conversation,” Kuria stated.
The Gatundu South lawmaker also claimed that the UDA party would not have gained victory in the recent success in the Kiambaa by-elections were it not for his intervention.
The Tanga Tanga legislator expressed his disappointment that the UDA party brigade claimed his Juja victory as one of their own.
“I went ahead to win in Juja and after that, all these people, Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua and co. neither helped nor contributed in any way.
“They were there praising my victory as one for the hustler nation, I don’t know when this changed and when I became a criminal or an outcast for Gachagua to go all over blasting me because I have a party,” Kuria stated.
Kuria also pointed out that the UDA outfit had a debt to pay for the Kiambaa by-elections victory and should support his candidate in the next by-elections.
The wrangles between Kuria and the UDA outfit have been boiling over in the recent past.
The fallout played in Ruto’s recent Parliamentary Group meeting where he addressed Kuria’s absence from the meeting.
“Tell them that the only PEP MP who belongs to the hustler nation (George) Koimburi is here,” Ruto told Garissa MP Aden Duale during the presser.
