Gatundu south member of parliament Moses kuria has apologized to president Uhuru kenyatta over his reckless remarks that caused uproar this week. Ho Kuria had earlier claimed that president kenyatta not keen on developing his hiome county of kiambu county. He said the locals are ashamed for being voting robbots who get nothing after elections are concluded in terms of development.
Hon Kuria blamed his remarks on rivally between camp tanga tanga led by Waititu and that of Kitaeleweka led by Woman Rep hon Wamuchomba for embarrassing the president over previous function in Kiambu.
Kuria alleged that uhuru visited other areas with goodies but came back home with nothing.
In a video which has since gone viral, Kuria was seen criticizing President Kenyatta for allegedly launching development projects in other parts of the country but neglecting his own home turf.
“Mimi nataka kusema hivi, tukifungua mwaka wa 2019 nyinyi mfikirie sana. Sisi mambo yetu ni kupiga kura, baada ya kupiga kura maendeleo tunapatiana kwingine,” said the outspoken legislator in the December 31, 2018 clip
Kuria said his statement was taken out of context, further assuring that his relationship with the President is still solid.
“I have a long history with the Head of State and we know each other very well. We have worked together every step of the way… so for people to come and to purport to know how my relationship with the Head of State is is misleading,” he stated.
Kuria further stated that his battle concerning underdevelopment in the area was not with President Uhuru Kenyatta but with the county leadership, led by Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and Woman Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba.
According to the MP, when the president is invited by leaders in other regions he always has goodies for them, unlike in Kiambu where he accused Governor Waititu and Wamuchomba of priding themselves in “fighting against alcoholism.”
Kuria’s apology also came a few hours after elders from his constituency, in a presser at Kimunyu Cutural Centre, dismissed his utterances and described them as “unfortunate, reckless, irresponsible and displayed total lack of respect for the Head of State.”
