Tuesday May 19, 2020 – Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, was on the attack yesterday following a controversial poll posted by political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi.
In the poll posted on Monday, May 18th, Ngunyi opined that the Gikuyu, Embu, Meru Association (GEMA) nation was being auctioned off by Deputy President William Ruto.
But according to the Gatundu South MP, it was the constitutional right of any block to vote for the leader of their choice.
“We are just tired of people begrudging us for our choices.”
“Thrice we made a decision to support Kibaki 100 percent in ‘97, ‘02, and ‘07.”
“No one had an issue with that.”
“Twice we made a decision to support Uhuru Kenyatta 100 percent in ‘13 and ‘17.”
“Kenyans have been saying that GEMA cannot support another tribe.”
“Willingly and without being forced they have settled on William Ruto,” Kuria stated in response to Mutahi Ngunyi.
The Ruto-allied MP further said that he even offered himself as a candidate but the feedback from the region was that of supporting another tribe.
“So what have we done wrong to deserve being called stupid?”
“I thought we deserve bouquets, not barbs for supporting a person from another tribe.”
“We are staring at a major uprising, nay, revolution in GEMA Nation,” he conveyed.
He argued that the wanton corruption and mismanagement of public funds rampant in Government was not what the people who fought for independence had in mind for Kenya.
“They disrespected our fathers who fought for independence.”
“We will fight for our honour and our dignity.”
“Look at the demolitions in Kariobangi and Ruai all meant to pave way for foolish unbridled wealth accumulation.”
“How much more can we swallow without rising up? Enough is enough,” he concluded.
