Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has ruled out joining Azimio la Umoja Coalition.
Speaking in Kiambu County on Tuesday, March 1, during the funeral service of Mama Monica Neri Waititu, the mother to former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, Kuria insisted that he would not join Azimio despite being unsure of his next political move.
The vocal lawmaker explained that at the moment, he does not belong to any coalition even as calls to join Kenya Kwanza Coalition affiliated to Deputy President William Ruto heightened.
"While still alive, I will decide for myself and I can tell you I will never be in Azimio and even when I am dead, please don't take me there," Kuria stated.
The MP who recently announced his bid to succeed Kiambu Governor James Nyoro maintained that his political ambition did not align with those of Azimio la Umoja.
The announcement came a few hours after Narc Kenya Martha Karua announced that she needed more time before committing to the One Kenya Alliance which had planned to sign a coalition agreement tomorrow, Wednesday, March 2.
Kuria had also indicated that he would consider working with OKA - but on the condition that they do not join the Azimio Coalition.
During his homecoming rally at Thika Stadium, Kuria reiterated that whoever wants to get votes from the Mt Kenya region have to earn ruling out the possibility of joining the existing coalitions.
"Do you want to choose your own leaders or do you want to be told who to vote for?" Kuria posed in Githurai.
The Chama Cha Kazi Party leader urged the electorate to vote for leaders based on merit.
"If I asked President Uhuru Kenyatta, and he is my brother from Gatundu, to place on the table what he was offering the region, why won't I ask the same of these other presidential candidates?" posed Kuria.
