  • Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on Friday apologised to President Uhuru Kenyatta after his remarks criticising the Head of State surfaced online.

    Speaking to journalists in Kimunyu, Gatundu South Constituency, the MP stated that his words may have been misinterpreted and apologised to anyone who took offense.

    “I refused to be sidetracked by those people who want to mislead people by saying that I have disrespected the president. I have never disrespected the head of state.

    "If any case any word that I might have uttered could have been misconstrued in any bad way, I offer my profuse apologies to the head of state and to anyone else," he explained.

    He further urged leaders to stop taking advantage of his words to create friction between himself and President Uhuru. 

    He, however, held that Mount Kenya region deserved proportionate development relative to the other regions of the country.

    Kuria has been under pressure after New Year eve celebrations at Thika Stadium, where he suggested that although the region supported Uhuru, it had not received much development.

    “We have been rendered into voting machines but development is channelled elsewhere; we must shelve that nonsense.

    “I want to tell the President to launch water, new roads, and electrification projects. We were with him in Kisumu where he launched new roads but coming to Kiambu, he only issued certificates to rehabilitated alcoholics,” proclaimed the MP.

    Several leaders have since reacted to the comments with Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni wa Muchomba inviting the lawmaker to her Mama Care Rehabilitation Centre for treatment.

    “I'm helping drunkards in Kiambu and am calling upon Hon Moses Kuria who recently addressed the President of the Republic of Kenya while visibly drunk to apologise to the nation,” she stated.
