Moses Kuria Reveals Condition That Would Force Him Out of Politics

  • Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria on Thursday, November 7, opened up about his place as a legislator in the constantly changing political landscape.

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Kuria narrated that if it reaches a point that he feels he is no longer serving the people as he should in his political capacity, he would have no qualms stepping aside and focusing on something else.

    “My day of reckoning will come someday. If it comes, and it makes sense to me, I will quit and concentrate on something else,” Kuria stated.

    While the legislator made it clear that he was better poised to represent his constituents in his current capacity, he was categorical that the end of his political career would not deal him a big blow, since his focus is not power, but on service to the people.

    “For me, politics is not a do or die matter. I can serve people outside politics if I realize that I cannot serve them inside it,” he narrated.

    Kuria disclosed that he envisioned South African President Cyril Ramaphosa as his political role model.

    “The South African elite favoured Thabo Mbeki over Cyril Ramaphosa as a favorite to succeed Nelson Mandela. They created all sorts of scandals to discredit him, and Ramaphosa walked away from politics. What happened years later? The South Africans cried to have him as their leader,” he narrated.

    Kuria stated that he had no shortage of activities to engage in outside of politics.

    He had an illustrious career in the banking sector that saw him operate a top-level financial institution in Kenya before moving to Saudi Arabia, where he was one of the senior bank managers.

    “Do not be surprised to hear that tomorrow I have quit politics to concentrate on something else,” he stated.
