Gatundu member of parliament Moses Kuria has taken a swipe at the Garissa town member of parliament Aden Duale following his remarks about Mt. Kenya.
According to Moses Kuria, he was ashamed at the former Majority leader for castigating them for coming together in a bid to champion the interests of the Mt. Kenya region.
The Gatundu member of parliament further wondered why all the evils were being attributed to Mt. Kenya despite several regions such as Migori county promising to form a coalition with Ruto’s UDA through governor Obado.
Below is the full statement that Moses Kuria issued in castigation of the Garissa legislator:
“I have read the Sunday Nation interview with Hon Aden Duale with sadness and trepidation. His vicious attack on Hon Mwangi Kiunjuri and myself to the point of saying that I should be ashamed of myself is totally unfortunate coming from a leader of Hon Duale’s stature. Our crime ?
Championing the legitimate rights of the people from Mt Kenya region. Duale is the Patron of the Pastoralists MPs Forum. That is OK. Problem is only when it comes to Mt Kenya region.
We have had 2 by-elections in Wajir and Garissa. In both cases, Duale led his community to donate the two seats to Jubilee unopposed. Yet I did not see him anywhere on the ground as we battled Jubilee in Juja, Kiambaa, Rurii etc.
Yet he now claims that what we are interested in are positions- Despite my public statement that I am not interested in any position. I see nothing but crying and gnashing of teeth should the likes of Duale come to 200 Kilometres radius of State House in 2022.
Yesterday the Governor of Migori Okoth Obado held public meetings in his County with the Deputy President and declared that his PDP Party will form an alliance with UDA. Duale will not see that. All evil comes from Mt Kenya led parties. Very sad. I am fearful.” Wrote Moses Kuria.
