Gatundu MP Moses Kuria has down played ‘washenzi remarks by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kuria in a last night interview he said that President Kenyatta scorn targeted to those who were criticizing him for not developing the Central Kenya region was not an insult.
The law maker claimed that there were other leaders who used more spicy words than the incumbent.
He added that he has already buried the hatchet and apologized to the President for his new year comments.
But he still raised his opposition on President going to ‘launch end walevi program’ in Kiambu County saying it was number 14 in his agenda list.
“Other leaders use worse words. I do not believe that he meant so. In my optics it is number 14,” he claimed.
Kuria also took a jab at former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo claiming that he equally did not perform well just as his successor, and current Governor Ferdinand Waititu.
The law maker also rubished reports that he was about to throw in the towel as an MP. He says he was appalled, insisting that he was going nowhere.
At the same time, the political storm blowing in President Uhuru’s backyard anchored on 2022 succession politics has threatened to split Jubilee party.
At the heart of the storm is whether Deputy President, Dr. William Ruto, should succeed him.
Those opposed to an alleged succession pact between the two claim that Dr. Ruto should retire with his boss.
Yesterday, women lawmakers also dived into the flurry of political heat, fanned by rapid pressers saying they were supporting Uhuru’s handshake with Raila.
Donned in white t-shirts labeled embrace they critisized those who were against handshake, presumably targeting Dr. Ruto’s camp.
