Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria was back on the spotlight alleging that he feared for his life.
During an interview on NTV’s morning show, AM Live, Kuria proclaimed that utterances by Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru would leave him assassinated.
The lawmaker noted that sentiments expressed by the leader were taking the country back to the KANU regime.
Kuria’s attack came after he noted an advertisement of the Point Blank show where Waiguru was the guest.
According to the notice, Waiguru asserted that President Uhuru Kenyatta had been too liberal with the likes of Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri and Kuria.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta is way too tolerant, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru says in her most candid interview yet. She gives the example of his CS Mwangi Kiunjuri and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, who she forthrightly states are openly undermining the President,” read a part of the advertisement.
Waiguru inciting Uhuru
The Jubilee Party member highlighted that it was wrong for a governor to be inciting the Head of State to act in such a way.
“Are we going to see assassinations again in the country? Look at those words of Anne Waiguru.
“Are we going to go back to the Kanu era after 30 years of freedom? stated the MP.
Kuria added, “In my opening remarks, I stated about the intolerance and I had not even seen this. Now you can see a governor who is urging the President to be intolerant.
“So I will just fear for my life but you have assured me at least I will live through this interview.”
The two leaders have been at loggerheads for quite some time with their latest war resurfacing a month ago.
Mt Kenya is crying out for development
The vocal legislator went after the central leader for her remarks over grievances ailing the Mt Kenya region.
As maintained by Waiguru, the problems raised by the people of the area were not genuine and were similar to those ones experienced by other Kenyans in the country.
The Gatundu South MP disagreed with her opinions and reiterated that the region still cried out for development.
In addition, he articulated that the situation had gone from bad to worse pointing out that a public project in Kirinyaga had collapsed.
“There is a water shortage in all our 10 counties. The youth have no jobs. Milk farmers are getting 17 shillings per litre because unscrupulous Kenyan companies are flooding the market with milk they have bought for Ksh 10 per litre in Uganda,” uttered the MP.
Kuria declared that he was willing to take the county boss on a tour to show her the situation on the ground.
