Gatundu South Member of Parliament, Moses Kuria has exposed a plot to kick him out of parliament, revealing that the scheme was hatched during yesterday’s Building Bridges Initiative retreat attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.
Taking to social media, Kuria divulged that his name made it to the agenda of the meeting where a powerful individual vowed to send him home in 2022.
Kuria wondered what he had done to merit the move, divulging that the said individual vowed that:
” he will ensure I (Kuria) do not get re-elected”.
“At the BBI retreat at the Great Rift Valley Lodge today, I have no idea how I became a subject of discussion to the point of someone saying he will ensure I do not get re-elected since hiyo kiti iko na mwenyewe” wrote Kuria.
Kuria vowed to soldier on, writing: “In God I trust. This far He has brought me. Twende Kazi<.
The lawmaker has turned into a fierce critic of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
He has since joined the Tanga Tanga faction and has been a hard-liner, taking opposing sides on several matters close to Uhuru’s heart.
He is among the few lawmakers from Central Kenya that the DP Ruto bandwagon are banking on to market his (Ruto’s) 2022 bid.
At the end of yesterday’s meeting, MPs and Senators who participated in the meeting issued a bold statement declaring support for the BBI report.
In a statement issued by Siaya Senator James Orengo at the close of the 2-day retreat that saw Deputy President William Ruto’s allies locked out, the lawmakers maintained that BBI will ensure that all Kenyans have access to the country’s shared prosperity.
“We have gathered here as Members of Parliament numbering nearly 300 from the National assembly and Senate to express our unequivocal support for the BBI,” the statement read in part.
The statement which was read in the presence of the two handshake brothers explained that shared prosperity means all communities in Kenya will be able to enjoy a share of national resources.
