Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has asked Meru governor Kiraitu Murungi not to be selfish after surviving COVID-19 but use the opportunity to serve his constituents.
In a recent hard-hitting piece on his COVID-19 journey, Kiraitu said being in isolation made him reflect on how politics had robbed him his life and because of that he would ignore the noise that comes with politics and instead follow the desires of his heart and family.
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has however criticised the county boss for his resolutions saying Kiraitu’s resolutions to focus on himself and his immediate family members after recuperating from COVID-19 shows that he is selfish.
The vocal legislator on Tuesday, April 27, took to his social media page saying God saved the governor so that he can serve him (God) and his people.
“I think if God saves you from such a terrible situation when others are not as lucky and are actually dying, He has a larger purpose for you than yourself or immediate family. God wants you to serve Him and His people even more. I am disturbed by Governor Kiraitu’s new selfish and inward looking self,” Kuria said.
Governor Kiraitu tested positive for COCID-19 in March 2021 and during those demanding days that he was fighting the virus, he saw the proverbial light and realized there was more to life than politics.
Commenting on Raila’s journey with Covid-19, governor Murungi called out President Uhuru Kenyatta for using ODM party leader for his political gain at the expense of his health.
“ I watched with pity a frail Raila Odinga, who was being treated for a Covid-19 attack, being literally “dragged out of bed” so that he and the President could be seen together opening roads in Nairobi and Kajiado — for political optics, to show Kenyans that the “handshake deal” between the two was still intact,” Murungi told the said.
The Governor’s agitation came from an incident on April 1, when President Uhuru tagged Raila Odinga alongside with him to inspect the NMS Green Park Bus Terminus project.
