Gatundu South Member of Parliament (MP) Moses Kuria on Wednesday urged Kenyans to cease focusing on the Handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga and start thinking of development.
Kuria mentioned that Kenyans ought to stop seeing the Handshake between the leaders as majorly about unity as opposed to development.
Speaking during Gatundu KMTC's Open Day, Kuria noted: "Kenyans must rethink their take on the handshake since the country has other issues which require urgent attention."
Additionally, the outspoken legislator dismissed calls for a referendum claiming that they are not of any importance to the people.
"A referendum will put us in a politicking mood and an opportunity to hurl insults at one another while critical issues like hospitals, colleges and roads take a back seat," Kuria expressed.
He insisted that the unity pact between the Head of State and the Opposition leader are also not about changing the Constitution.
During the event, the MP alongside Health PS Peter Tum and KMTC chairman Prof Phillip Kaloki opened six lecture halls and presented a college bus funded through the CDF.
Kurial also revealed a plan that will see Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) graduates secure employment in the United States.
Kuria noted that the Mutunguru KMTC Campus under construction in the constituency would train nurses exclusively for the US market where he indicated 1 million nurses are needed each year.
He further divulged that he had secured a partnership with Amherst College, the University of Massachusetts in 2017 that will see the college offer studies that align with the US market needs.
