Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria has blasted Deputy President William Ruto and his allies for snapping his thanksgiving ceremony.
Speaking in Thika Stadium on Saturday, Friday 19, Kuria revealed that politicians allied to the United Democratic Alliance party were ordered not to attend the event.
“When I organized this event, I called Kabando Wa Kabando asking him to be the joint MC with Ndindi Nyoro. But because there were people who thought this would be a political meeting, UDA members were summoned and ordered not to attend,” Kuria said.
The outspoken, legislature claimed that the UDA politicians might have snapped his homecoming for political reasons.
“Some people thought this was a political meeting and UDA held a meeting and told its members not to attend this meeting. It is only the legal affairs secretary of UDA, my good friend Lawyer Edward Mureu who has chosen to come,” he added.
The Chama Cha Kazi party leader castigated the Deputy President for abandoning him when in fact he lost parliamentary committee positions due to his affiliation to UDA.
At the same time, Kuria warned the UDA brigades against insulting President Uhuru, saying the Mt Kenya region will not entertain any insults directed at the president.
“There is something that is making me angry, no one should insult our president. Let them wait for theirs and they can do that… we are going to escort the president with respect as he finishes his term,” Kuria stated.
The lawmaker who had been in Dubai for over three months receiving specialized treatment after suffering burns in 2021 said he had invited politicians from all political formations.
“I have invited everybody; I have invited all the presidential candidates. My duty is to invite, their duty is to attend; I cannot tell you who is going to attend and who is not going to,” Kuria said in an interview with Citizen TV.
Those who attended are the Forum for Mount Kenya Region leaders including Martha Karua (Narc-K) and Mwangi Kiunjuri (TSP).
Others are Kiambu governor James Nyoro (Jubilee), Thika MP Patrick Wainaina and former Mukurweini MP Kabando wa Kabando.
