  • It has emerged that President Uhuru Kenyatta's allies stopped Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria from delivering his resignation letter to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.

    Reports alleged that Kuria had decided to resign following the backlash against his remarks that President Kenyatta had abandoned Mt Kenya region in terms of development.

    The MP had made the comments on New Year’s Eve.

    According to The Star, former Jubilee vice chairman David Murathe and Deputy Chief of Staff Njee Muturi intervened before it was too late.

    Kuria was with Murathe on Tuesday night until 3am to discuss the resignation and reportedly talked him out of it. 

    Sources claimed that resignation would embarrass Uhuru and it would appear as though he was forcing the vocal legislator from his backyard.

    On Thursday evening, the legislator held a presser at Parliament Buildings where he claimed that his life was in danger.

    During the presser, Kuria alleged that he has been receiving threats following his criticism of the head of state and has reported the matter to the Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti.

    In his statement, the parliamentarian equally rallied Kenyans to demonstrate positivity, unity, hard work and respect for each and everyone including the leaders and the President.

    "I call upon all Kenyans not to give up on this country. This is the generation that will fix our country," the Gatundu South MP exuded optimism.
