Images of Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria posing with female lawmakers during the Tanga Tanga meeting in Naivasha have elicited excitement among several Kenyans online.
Taking to his Facebook page, Kuria shared the images which had among others, Aisha Jumwa (Malindi), senators Susan Kihika (Nakuru) and Millicent Omanga (Nominated).
“Naivasha was good. The nation is united,” Kuria captioned.
” Indeed it was good for you,” a Facebook user, Trevis Kibaki commented.
“We can clearly see the unity brother,, hope you get more such opportunities to display our unity,” added Peter Njoroge.
During the meeting, the MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto revealed their plan to hold parallel Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rallies beginning February.
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said the first meeting will be held in Nakuru on February 8, after they raised concerns over how the ongoing BBI rallies are being conducted.

The firebrand Aisha Jumwa (ODM) and her Nyali counterpart Mohammed Ali (Independent) defended their move to join the 173 Jubilee MPs.
“If you are a child and you’ve gone somewhere and found your mother exposed, to protect her from ridiculed, you will tactically tell her she is being called by the husband when she stands, she will have straightened her cloth,” Jumwa said.
“We must speak the truth even if it hurts. The common mwananchi should be given priority first.”
MPs allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta snubbed the meeting arguing that it had been disguised as a forum on constitutional reforms with a selfish motive.
