Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has revealed that he may not vie for any political seat come 2022.
Despite political analysts predicting Kuria may run for the presidency, the vocal politician hinted at retiring to private life.
“At the moment I am considering not vying in 2022 and retreating to my private life,” Kuria said.
Kuria’s revelation comes after he announced in February 2019 that he would vie for the presidency.
“I will vie for the presidency in 2022. I will be on the ballot, I can never go back to village jobs, I’m vying for the presidency in 2022.”
They are trying to silence me.
Kuria further explained that government officials are trying to silence him. His accusations come after he accused the Standard Newspaper of refusing to publish his article.
According to the MP, he had an interview with the Standard newspaper on the 12th of July 2020. The paper was to publish the story on the 17th of July. However, the standard pulled down the article at the last minute.
Kuria further explained that he discussed Uhuru, Raila, and the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
“We talked about a wide range of issues, a very light interview. The topics included BBI & Handshake, Uhuru, Raila, Ruto, 2022, my history, and what position I will vie for in 2022.”
“I had said that BBI (Building Bridges Initiative) and handshake were great initiatives but Uhuru and Raila lost it when they failed to carry the rest of the country with them. They made it a personal project for themselves.”
However, Kuria did not reveal who exactly wanted to silence him. He claimed that he only knows that powerful government officials are behind Standard pulling down the article.
“I don’t know but I suspect its people who do not want me as MP of Gatundu South.”
Kuria took to Facebook blasting The Standard newspaper for not publishing his interview.
“By giving in to the dictates of the deep state, your bosses (at Standard Group) are the losers.”
