Gatundu south mp Moses Kuria could be hitting on a hard rock as parliament resumes today. The Gatundu lawmaker risks being ejected from two parliamentary committee he appears in according to Majority leader Aden Duale.
Kuria’s troubles worsened after his new year utterance against the party leader president Uhuru Kenyatta.
In differences which he claims go back as far as 2014, Kuria who has differed with Duale on several occasions claimed his efforts at making Kenya a better nation were constantly frustrated to no end.
For starters, he cited that a majority of the private bills that he has presented to the National Assembly were yet to see the light of day courtesy of Duale.
“So now Aden Duale wants to de-whip me from the two committees that I serve in. First, you are not qualified to do so. This is the work of the party through the Secretary General Raphael Tuju And Chief Whip Ben Washiali.
Secondly I have no problem being removed from the Transport and Budget Committees as long as the correct procedure is followed. Bring it on ! I serve in the committees at the pleasure of the party. If the party decides that my services in the committees are no longer required, I will oblige.
Third, all this persecution will come to an end one day. You have frustrated all my private bills since 2014. None of my legislative proposals have ever been brought to the House. From NGO’s Reform Bill (2014) to the Coffee Bill, the Interest Rates Bill And now the one you have sworn to defeat – Select Committee to support Matiang’i and his committee. I am aware you are not happy with my presentation to the Building Bridges Initiative but having an inclusive government and an inclusive Opposition is an Ideal I will fight for. So now my friend don’t even go to the media to remove me from committees. Follow procedure and I will leave. These are not positions that benefit me personally. They are platforms I use to make Kenya a better nation. Take your committee positions any time. Indo ciene itiri ndokeirwo nuu, my people say” Kuria said
