Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria , on Tuesday, December 10, made a confession on NTV and asked to be prayed for, during the AM Live show, hosted by Debarl Inea.
Kuria disclosed that he was going through a rough patch in his life and Debarl paused the show as Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot made benediction on behalf of the legislator.
"I want to ask Simiyu Eseli (Tongaren MP), Boni Khalwale (former Kakamega Senator) and Cheruiyot to pray for this country, for tolerance and above all pray for me. I am going through a bad patch," Kuria humbly requested.
"Dear heavenly father. We thank you for this show and that we have had and a wonderful time every Tuesday of the year. Thank you for the things that have enlightened the country. We seek forgiveness for the things that have not aligned with your will.
"We say a special prayer for Moses Kuria who had spoken on his safety and the things that he has gone through. In your own way, meet him at his point of need. We pray for protection upon him and his family, in Jesus name. Amen," Cheruiyot prayed.
Kuria had spoken on the challenges he was facing as a legislator, speaking out against being intimidated over his political stance.
"I was elected by the people of Gatundu South and I keep on asking them, even today I am going to speak to them, that when they get tired of me, all they have to do is inform me. I will not wait for the next election. I will resign and go. Political positions mean nothing to me. I can go back to the private sector and be a good citizen or I can open my own church," a visibly angry Kuria stated and later reiterated the same to Kenyans.co.ke.
He went on to lash out at Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru's remarks in a promotion for KTN's Pointblank show hosted by Tony Gachoka, which is set to air on Wednesday, December 11.
"President Uhuru Kenyatta is way too tolerant, Waiguru says in her most candid interview yet. She gives the example of Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri and Moses Kuria who she forthrightly states are openly undermining the president," the caption of a photo of Gachoka and Waiguru read.
Kuria argued that he had nothing to lose as a politician and that all he wanted was for the good of his constituents.
"False prophets around the president are telling him that if we openly speak on BBI, or a politically partisan IEBC, or raise questions not in the report, then we are undermining the president. They go further and ask him to be intolerant.
"We have been beaten, tortured into a corner, since the time I was part of the liberation movement with the likes of Senator James Orengo. Right now, we are at a point where we have to bow down to everything. We are going to be zombies. Is that really what we want in this country? What is it worth? My joy is to see my people prosper. We do not want anything for ourselves," he spoke.
