Moses Kuria walks out of Labour Day celebrations at Uhuru Park, explains why

Disappointed Moses Kuria walks out of Labour Day celebrations

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has explained why he suddenly left Uhuru Park during the Labour Day celebrations.

In a post on his Facebook page, the Gatundu South Member of Parliament said that he was disappointed the event had been turned into a NASA affair.

The post by Kuria read: "It’s sad I attended Labour Day thinking its a Workers Day. It turns out to be just another NASA rally."

Kuria walked out of Uhuru park when ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi had taken to the podium to address Kenyans who had gathered for the Labour Day celebrations.

A group of youth were heard chanting and asking for Kuria to address them with some shouting that the legislator was walking out.

Atwoli on Moses Kuria

Cotu boss Francis Atwoli had thanked Kuria in his speech earlier and even lauded him for the support he has offered Kenyans.

"I want to thank Moses Kuria he has been so much support with me. We as Kenyans we want to support the President in fighting corruption," said Atwoli.

During Tuesday's Workers day, Cotu boss Francis Atwoli castigated MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto who he cautioned against sabotaging President Uhuru Kenyatta's legacy.

The Tanga Tanga MPs were also called out for what was termed as protecting corrupt individuals.

Kenyans on Twitter seem to have agreed with Kuria on the relevance of the Labour Day celebration being ignored at this year's event.
