In politics, everything is possible.
The National Alliance Party is facing rebellion from a section of Gatundu South constituents after political activist Moses Kuria indicated he will be on the ballot to take over from former MP Jossy Ngugi.
Ngugi was among a group of back-bench politicians in the TNA side who recently came under accusations for ‘not doing enough’ to defend President Uhuru and the Jubilee government.
Barely Two month after Hon. Kimani Ichung’wah claimed during a funeral that some TNA members of parliment were “silent back benchers” and there was a need for their replacement with “active ones”, Gatundu South MP Jossy Ngugi who was also considered as a “silent back bencher” DIED mysteriously and before the moist soil could dry on his grave, “the noisy” [good-for-nothing] activist Moses Kuria has already express interest in the post stating that “his is a promise better than Ngugi’s ” .
While Kuria has been ‘loud’ in his defense of President Uhuru’s government, most TNA MPs from Mt. Kenya, especially the first time MPs, are said to be uncomfortable with him.
Recently, Kuria shocked Kenyans when he called on his Kikuyu ethnic community to take up arms and attack those he deemed were causing disturbance in the country by financing, or, being sympathetic to terrorists. He also threatened the departing European tourists.
While the tactics of Kuria has made him famous in the blogosphere – especially Facebook – he may come face to face with elective grassroots politics. Of course, several Gatundu South residents have told this writer Kuria better remain Facebook, because the ground will embarrass him.
If rejected by Gatundu South voters, it may well be that the man’s loudness, clothed in ethnic jingoism, may have well not found favour with a village voter not used to the sort of social media savagery practised earnestly by Kuria.
Ooh, could this explain why he deleted his Facebook Account?
