Gatundu South member of parliament Moses Kuria has declared his bid to run for presidency come 2022. And now it seems like the MP is serious on it if what he has recently been saying as he goes around the country is anything to go by.
On March 23, 2019, Kuria reiterated this while at a fundraiser in Wajir an event which was attended by Raila Odinga, Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho, Wajir Women Representative Honorable Fatuma Gedi, Suna East member of parliament Junet Mohamed, Mvita member of parliament Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir among other leaders.
While in Nyamira county yesterday, Kuria said he will be on the ballot come 2022 deputized by interior security Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.
“I am assuring you that your son (Matiang’i) who is now the Prime Minister will be my running mate in 2022 and you know very well that in Kenya, it’s only me and him who does not tolerate nonsense and we will make things happen in the country,” Kuria said.
He was speaking at a fundraiser in aid of Nyanturago Catholic Church an event attended by Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka, Nyamira Senator Okong’o Omogeni and West Mugirango Member of Parliament Vincent Kemosi.
Some time back in early February, the Gatundu South MP had alleged that he will vie for presidency deputized by deputy president William Ruto or ODM party leader Raila Odinga. He was speaking during an interview on Hot 96 hosted by Jeff Koinange.
He has not declared which party he will vie on when the time comes. He has already dismissed claims that he will vie on Democratic Party.
While dismissing the claims, Kuria said “I have noted with concern a statement about my candidature coming from the Secretary General of the Democratic Party. I have never declared which party I will vie on. I am interviewing various parties to assess which one is close to my vision and agenda for this nation. DP is on that shortlist. Let them relax. The process will take some time and they will be notified of the outcome through formal channels”
