Kuria: I am not resigning, my life is in danger

By Irene Mwangi

Controversial Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has denied reports of his resignation as Gatundu South legislator.

The vocal MP said this during a press conference where he cited alleged threats to his life by what he called opportunists who were scheming to exploit the current crisis for their selfish reasons.

“To those who might have wanted to exploit the current crisis for selfish objectives, I also urge you to go back to working for our people. I trust that this will put to an end the subtle and not so subtle threats on my life from opportunists details of which I have already shared with the DCI George Kinoti,” he said.

Kuria apologized following his remarks on New Year where he criticized President Uhuru Kenyatta for failing to allocate development projects to his Mount Kenya backyard.

“I have nothing but utmost respect for President Kenyatta with whom I have worked for a long time towards making Kenya a great nation,” he added.

The legislator took the opportunity to set the record straight that he is fully behind the hand-shake between President Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga despite the claims emerging that he is one of the leaders against it.

“There are reports circulating that I am opposed to the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). I have been very consistent in supporting the initiative and even traversed many parts of the country,” he elaborated.

The legislator apologized to Central region counties which he had claimed that had no tangible development progress.

He however warned that it would be a shame for leaders to remain silent when the country is facing momentous challenges especially on the economic front.
