  • Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has issued a bold prediction of an unlikely alliance between Deputy President William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement Party leader Raila Odinga before the 2022 general elections.

    Speaking on Gerald Bitok's Youtube Channel show dubbed TheTackle, Kuria said that Raila would use the unlikely alliance as his last-ditch effort to ensure that he's still in government.

    "Raila is a strategist, he is always on the warm side of the opposition.

    "He has a hand at the pulse of the nation and he knows that Ruto has got a wider fanbase so the logical thing for him is to tell Ruto to allow him to work together for him to give him the wisdom and ideologies just like it was in the grand coalition with Kibaki," Kuria opined.

    The legislator went on to detail the strained relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy.

    "The president has put in a lot of effort to repair the relationship with the DP. They have held several meetings together," Kuria stated.

    On the issue of Kenya's economic status, Kuria accused the government of being out of touch with the plight of the common Mwananchi.

    He alluded to recent events and campaign tours where politicians are focused on driving their agendas instead of pushing for development.

    Further, he echoed Ruto's statement on Kenya's debt crisis where he pointed on the status of the economy in the country while drawing comparisons with Kibaki's reign. He accused the government of over-borrowing at the expense of the taxpayer. Currently, the public debt stands at Ksh7.28 trillion.

    Kuria also addressed Uhuru's recent tour in Sagana where the Head of State met with Mt Kenya leaders. 

    "If Uhuru wants to speak to GEMA he should come back to Limuru where his ambitions were endorsed. The Sagana meeting was a gathering to intimidate people with state power and not a community gathering," Kuria said.

    He suggested that the three political bigwigs, Uhuru, Raila, and Ruto, be mindful of the country's state in the coming years.

    "William Ruto, Uhuru Kenyatta, and Raila Odinga - think about your children and our children when you think about the state you will leave the country in," Kuria stated.
