Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu on Monday, November 18, called out his Gatundu South counterpart Moses Kuria for what he described as being ungrateful to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Wambugu, in a social media post, accused Kuria of allegedly plotting to lead Mount Kenya leaders in a revolution against President Uhuru, something he termed a figment of Kuria's imagination.
The Nyeri legislator alleged that it was though Uhuru's help that Kuria made his debut to Parliament and insisted that since they both (Uhuru and Kuria) hailed from the same constituency, there was no need for bad blood.
"Hon Moses Kuria, Member of Parliament for Gatundu South, which is the same constituency that Uhuru Kenyatta comes from and once represented as MP; hopes to be the one who will lead a revolution against Uhuru Kenyatta, that he imagines will happen in Mt Kenya," the post by Wambugu reads.
Wambugu went on to blame Kuria's political maneuvres for the apparent disunity among Mt Kenya leaders.
"This attitude of raw political opportunism amongst our elected leaders in Mt Kenya is why we are where we are as a region," he added.
His criticism of Kuria came days after the president held a meeting on Friday, November 15, with all elected and nominated leaders from the region at the Sagana State Lodge.
At the end of the meeting, Kuria addressed the media and was critical of the president and the issues discussed at the meeting.
"I have not heard anything new today. We sat in the very same tent three years ago, and again here we are, addressing the very same problems," Kuria reiterated.
Kuria expressed his frustration with the leaders at the meeting, recounting a similar meeting that was called for by the president in 2016, in which similar issues were discussed, similar solutions were suggested, but no action was taken.
