Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has confidently claimed that United Democratic Movement (UDA) will beat Jubilee hands down in the upcoming Kiambaa Constituency’s by-election.
The vocal legislature while speaking ahead of the mini-polls gave the example of how his People’s Empowerment Party (PEP) candidate George Kiombori floored Jubilee’s candidate Susan Waititu in the Juja Parliamentary seat by-election a few weeks ago.
Moses Kuria’s PEP is associated with Deputy President William Ruto’s Hustler Movement.
He indicated that the Hustler Nation was going to defeat President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee once again and it will be by a bigger margin.
Kuria said the Hustler Nation is expecting nothing less than 80% of the votes in Kiambaa for their candidate, Wanjiku.
The MP went on to sarcastically sympathize with the ruling party saying that the party’s burial will be in the upcoming by-election.
“As of now, I can tell you that UDA will garner over 80% of the total votes. I want to give Jubilee my sympathies because its death was in Juja and the burial will be in Kiambaa,” he said.
He also thanked police officers for not interfering with the campaigns saying the field should be leveled for all contenders.
Earlier on it was reported that there was friction between UDA and PEP after they both fielded their respective candidates for the mini-poll.
The move saw Kuria and his Mathira counterpart Kimani Gachagua exchange words on their social media platforms.
The Mathira MP stressed out that UDA had only one candidate and anyone else who fronts their candidate is not genuine.
Kuria on his part mocked Gachagua reminding him that he was a District Officer before he joined politics and he will always remain like that.
However, days later, Moses Kuria revealed that his PEP party had withdrawn its candidate from the by-election after holding extensive discussions with the Deputy President.
He admitted that it was a painful decision but one that he was comfortable with.
In an interview with a local TV station, Moses Kuria also refuted claims that he received money from the DP to withdraw his candidate from the race.
He made it clear that he has never received money from anyone to change his political stand while stating that there are other people who can be bought for even billions of shillings but he has no price.
