The gatundu legislator declared he will vie for presidency during an interview on capital fm. He said that his motto will be to work for all Kenyans regardless of tribe or social background.
“I will support myself for the Presidency,” he said when asked who he will support in 2022.
“First of all, I have never talked badly about religion or tribe but the problem with the people I speak against is that they describe me as a tribalist, thief, corrupt,” he said, adding: “I think their symbol needs to be a brush. When you join them, they paint you white when you leave them they paint you black. I am not a tribalist.”
“Campaign for me. My symbol will be a spanner. I just want to speak my mind. If I have opposed you and you are from another tribe it is not because you are from a different area,” he was quoted.
“If even if you look at the issues affecting this nation like those of the youth unemployment, use of SME, they do not know tribe. The same hunger that is biting people in Gatundu is the same one that is biting someone else in Mombasa, Kisumu or wherever there is.”
Pointing out his past record in the Gatundu South Parliamentary seat elections, Moses Kuria exuded confidence of clinching the Presidential seat.
“Three years after I went to parliament, is when we went for the elections on August 8. I had six opponents against me and I won by 93 percent. I know my stuff and I do not believe in losing. I am very poor at that,” he added.
