Moses Kuria Rants Against Uhuru's Government After Apology
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on Sunday continued with his criticism on Jubilee's development impact.
Hours after issuing a public apology to President Uhuru Kenyatta over earlier remarks, Kuria explained how a visit to Nyandarua County had made him revert to his earlier stance.
"On Saturday, I attended the funeral of my good friend the late John Mwangi Kagema, Founder CEO Equity Bank and Chairman of Enashipai resort. May God rest his soul in eternal peace.
"When I was in Nyandarua, I was even more convinced why we need a fair formula for resource allocation," Kuria stated.
"Potatoes, tomatoes and onions are being fed to animals. There are no roads in Nyandarua to deliver these products to the markets in Nakuru, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu or Thika," he added.
The vocal legislator noted that such food wastage can be solved through serious agro-processing in the food basket zone at an estimated value of Ksh 1 billion.
He also noted how the residents of the county were going without water despite hosting the Aberdares - one of the crucial water tower that serves the capital city, Nairobi.
"I listened to Governor Francis Kimemia yesterday talk about how his government is drilling boreholes for the people of Nyandarua.
"The custodians of Aberdares have to resort to boreholes for water," Kuria exclaimed.
The Gatundu South legislator also noted how the county which is considered a Jubilee stronghold lags behind in electricity connection although its catching up through the last mile connectivity.
"If you look at the current and proposed formula for revenue sharing by CRA, Nyandarua comes out as a priveleged county yet the people there are wallowing in poverty.
"Raundi hii kitaeleweka kabisa! (This time round we have to square it out)," Kuria vowed a likely indication that he would continue criticizing the government.
