Lying to an old man is an abomination – Moses Kuria slams Duale as ODM loses major seats in Friday by-election

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has slammed National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale for lying to opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Kuria who shared pictures of President Uhuru with the majority leader at State House said that he already knew Raila would lose, the moment he saw pictures of the President with a Jubilee shirt.

He went on to say that lying to an old man like the former Prime Minister was a crime, while at the same time expressing confidence that they would also take the Wajir West parliamentary seat in the upcoming by-election.

Donning a Jubilee shirt on the very day we know Baba ataoshwa. And now in 3 weeks we are taking Wajir West. Aden Duale Mungu anawaona. Lying is a crime. Lying to an old man is an abomination,” wrote Moses Kuria.

The vocal MP went on to say that from the results in the Ugenya and Embakasi South by-elections, it was clear that the 2022 presidential race would only be between him and the Deputy President.

I send my condolences to Baba for losing both at home in Ugenya and away in Embakasi South. From the foregoing it is clear that 2022 is an outright two horse dead heat between William Ruto and myself. I seek your support Baba,” said Kuria in another post.

By-elections

His words come barely a day after ODM candidates Chris Karan and Irshad Sumra lost in the Ugenya and Embakasi South constituencies’ by-elections respectively.

Karan lost to Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) Party’s David Ochieng as he garnered 14,507 votes against Ochieng’s 18, 730 votes.

Sumra also lost to Wiper’s Julius Mawathe as he got a paltry 7, 988 votes against Mawathe’s 21, 628 votes.
