Moses Kuria, a member of parliament for Gatundu South and a Chama Cha Kazi candidate for governor of Kiambu, has expressed regret for not joining William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party.
In a message posted on his social media profile on Sunday, July 24, Kuria stated that he had made numerous sacrifices for Ruto’s presidential campaign. Despite being a member of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, Moses Kuria is running for governor of Kiambu against UDA’s Kimani Wamatangi.
He chastised those who claimed he would have won the Kiambu election on a UDA ticket, saying he was willing to lose on a Chama Cha Kazi ticket.
“Many people have told me that if I had run on a UDA ticket, I would have been elected governor of Kiambu automatically. So be it if competing for a Chama Cha Kazi ticket means losing my seat despite sharing a platform with William Ruto at great personal risk and sacrifice.” Kuria posted on Facebook.
The outspoken MP claims he is willing to go to any length to ensure that the Mt. Kenya community is represented in Ruto’s administration.
“Everything else is secondary to my town’s future,” Kuria said.
