Moses Kuria hits back after Duale called him a donkey in the 2022 presidential race

Duale sparks fight with Moses Kuria

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on Tuesday night hit back, minutes after National Assembly Majority Leader termed him a joker and a donkey in the 2022 presidential race.

Kuria made reference to the scarce voter population in his constituency and challenged his credentials to comment on the credibility of national presidential candidates.

Hii dunia ina maajabu (The world is full of surprises). A camel elected by 2000 people calls others donkeys? How now?” the Gatundu South MP said on his Facebook page.

Duale had made the controversial comments during an interview with Citizen TV where he said the 2022 presidential contest would be a two-horse race between ODM Leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto.

Asked to comment on Kuria’s candidature, Duale did not mince his words saying the Gatundu South MP was in the group of jokers.

“I can tell you for free, the next contest, in 2022, will be between two people, Raila Odinga and William Ruto. I will be backing William Ruto.”

Honorable Moses Kuria and all these people, in every election there are jokers like we had Peter Kenneth, Abduba Dida, and Peter Kenneth in 2013. In 2022, it will be a two-horse race – the rest are donkeys,” Duale said.

 At the same time, the Majority Leader said he would close ranks with Ruto to support the referendum before 2022 – but noted that he would still support the DP’s presidential campaign.
