Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has spoken about his relationship with Deputy President William Ruto following days of speculations of them parting ways.
The Gatundu South lawmaker had skipped a Parliamentary Group (PG) meeting hosted by DP Ruto on August 5, 2021 at his Karen home in Nairobi County.
Speaking at Kinamba trading Centre in Ng’arua division of Laikipia County on Sunday, August 8, 2021, the legislator dismissed the rumors of him ditching the DP adding that his only 2022 preferred Presidential candidate is Ruto.
“Everyone should know that my choice of the presidential candidate for the 2022 general elections is the Deputy President,” Kuria stated.
“You guys know that I am a supporter of the hustler, I am a staunch supporter”, he added.
Kuria, however, warned his colleagues and the electorate against joining Ruto’s UDA.
“Women do not burn down their beds when they leave their parents’ home and get married. One will always regret when coming back where they belong, after being knocked out of the home of an unwanted host,” Kuria warned.
Reports had indicated that the two had clashed over Kuria’s failure to join Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party.
This comes after Ruto took a swipe at Kuria for missing his Karen Meeting on Thursday, August 5, 2021.
The DP was heard instructing Duale to inform the members that only PEP MP who belongs to the hustler nation was Koimburi after a question on Kuria’s absence emerged.
“Tell them that the only PEP MP who belongs to the hustler nation (George) Koimburi is here,” Ruto said.
The Gatundu South MP later revealed that he skipped Ruto’s meeting to attend a meeting of the National Assembly Implementation Committee to deliberate on measures of ensuring the completion of the Ronald Ngala Tourism College.
