Kiambu gubernatorial candidate on the Chama Cha Kazi ticket Moses Kuria has said he has no regrets about not joining the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party of William Ruto.
Even though Kuria is a member of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, he is battling it out with UDA’s candidate, Kimani Wamatangi, for the Kiambu gubernatorial seat.
Kuria says he has sacrificed a lot for Ruto
In a statement on his social media page on Sunday, July 24, Kuria noted that he had sacrificed much for Ruto’s presidential bid.
He told off those saying he would have won the Kiambu contest on a UDA ticket, saying he was ready to lose on a Chama Cha Kazi ticket.
“I have heard so many people tell me that I would be elected automatically as the Governor of Kiambu had I vied on a UDA ticket. If me vying on a Chama Cha Kazi ticket will cost me the seat despite standing with William Ruto at a very huge personal sacrifice and expense, so be it.” Kuria wrote on Facebook.
According to the outspoken MP, he is ready to sacrifice everything to ensure the Mt Kenya community is part of Ruto’s government.
“When it comes to the future of my community, everything else is secondary,” Kuria noted
Moses Kuria accuses Rigathi Gachagua of blackmail.
Kuria has condemned a clique of members in the UDA party whom he accuses of blackmailing him.
Kuria stated that the members had condemned him for his resolve to run his outfit at the expense of fully supporting UDA.
Kuria particularly pointed out Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, whom he claimed blasted him for refusing to dissolve his party to support UDA.
