Moses Kuria reacts after being told he is unwelcome in UDA

Moses Kuria's relationship with UDA takes new twist

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria

A battle is looming between Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa and his Gatundu South counterpart Moses Kuria.

Ichungwa on Friday, March 11 said that Kuria is unwanted in the United Democratic Alliance led by Deputy President William Ruto.

In an interview, the Kikuyu MP said that the Chama Cha Kazi party leader's involvement in UDA and the larger Kenya Kwanza Alliance is intended to cause confusion.

This comes in the backdrop of Kuria’s announcement that he was in talks with UDA and 19 other parties.

I’m not aware of any such partnership (between Chama Cha Kazi and UDA)...UDA is a party that welcomes everyone and if he intends to join UDA, he is welcome but not to create confusion to vend tickets. Our people are in UDA as their party of choice,” Ichungwa said.

Kuria issued his response in a Facebook post shared on the wee hours of Saturday morning at around 3am.

He expressed surprise that his Kikuyu counterpart seemed to be holding a grudge against him, describing Ichungwa’s remarks as juvenile.

I have read the unwarranted attacks on me by my colleague Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa appearing in today's Daily Nation with shock and dismay.

Mr Ichungwa seems to have a lot of bile towards me for choosing to belong to the Chama Cha Kazi Party and not the UDA Party. This is my democratic right that will not be taken away by Ichungwa's juvenile attack,” Kuria answered back.

The love and hate relationship between the Chama Cha Kazi party leader and members of DP Ruto’s camp was brought to the light after Kuria returned from Dubai in February.

During his thanksgiving rally at Thika Stadium, he disclosed that members of UDA had bee directed to give the event a wide birth.

"When I organized this event, I called Honourable Kabando Wa Kabando telling him that I wanted him to be a joint MC with my friend Ndindi Nyoro. But because there are certain quarters that believed that this event will be political, UDA officials convened a meeting and warned them from attending my event," he said at the time.

The Gatundu South MP was then formally invited to join the One Kenya Alliance but rejected the move, arguing that he would only be part of the movement if the drop intentions of supporting ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid.
