Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on Tuesday threw a spanner in the works after he announced that he was the one who had initiated the controversial meetings held at La Mada Hotel – bringing together political leaders and government officials from the Mt Kenya region.
Kuria said that while he could not speak on whether murder was planned during the meetings, he did not see anything wrong with regional leaders and officials holding meetings.
“I am the one who initiated the meetings, including the choice of La Mada Hotel. I coordinated development issues for the region including MPs, senators, CSs, professionals, and business people. There have been several meetings to discuss the development issues in the region”.
“I believe it is our legitimate right to sit down and resolve our issues. These are not our personal issues, they are a response to concerns to the ground. I also know Rift Valley leaders, CSs and professionals meet at Weston Hotel and in Karen, same with Nyanza and every where else. Strong regions lead to a strong Kenya,” Kuria said.
The Gatundu South MP urged Kenyans to wait on the investigative authorities, saying the outcome would be a turning point for this country.
“This investigation will be the deciding point. There are only two outcomes, if it turns out that CSs sat to plan murder, how can I work with such a government? If it turns out that the DP fabricated the claims, how can I work with people who sit down to plan propaganda,” Kuria stated adding that he was willing to record a statement with the DCI.
