Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has claimed that his life is in danger.

Speaking in Parliament on Thursday, the legislator said that he has reported the threats to Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti while calling on politicians to tone down on their rhetoric and concentrate on service delivery.

He also denied media reports that he had in a letter to National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi relinquished his position as Gatundu South legislator.

“To those who might have wanted to exploit this crisis for selfish objectives I also urge you to go back and work for our people. I trust that this will put an end to the threats to my life, some subtle and some not too subtle, details which I have already shared with DCI George Kinoti, a man whose capability and patriotism is unmatched and who is doing everything possible to investigate the same,” said Kuria in an uncharacteristic composed manner.

This comes two days after the legislator fired back at the Head of State after the former accused his party leader of neglecting Central Kenya while dishing out development projects.

On Tuesday, President Kenyatta while launching the Mombasa Waterfront Development Project dismissed Kuria and other leaders in the underdevelopment jibe as ‘washenzi’ which means fools saying that the Jubilee Administration is bound by law to serve all Kenyans equally.


The lost love between Kuria and President Kenyatta first surfaced during a New Year’s eve Party at the Thika Stadium when Kuria launched a scathing attack on Uhuru over the development projects.

“In 2019 Mt Kenya voters ought to think long and hard. We can’t be casting our votes while goodies are dished elsewhere. We must stop this nonsense. The other day we launched a road in Kisumu but when the President comes to Kiambu he only issues recovering alcoholics with NACADA certificates. He must cease taking us for a ride,” charged the Gatundu South MP.


Shortly after Kuria’s lashing out, Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu sent the MP’s brother who works as the County Chief Officer-Agriculture, Crop Production, Irrigation and Marketing on compulsory leave.

A section of Mt Kenya leaders on Wednesday led by former Nairobi and Kirinyaga gubernatorial aspirants Peter Kenneth and Martha Karua came out all guns blazing in defence of President Kenyatta who had been under fire from Kuria and Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri.

Ngunjiri, a staunch Deputy President William Ruto supporter has been firing salvos at the head of state over failure to explicitly voice support for DP Ruto’s 2022 bid.

On Thursday, a section of women leaders drawn from Jubilee Party and the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) under the banner embrace also called for respect for President Kenyatta.

“We fully support our two leaders President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Rt Hounarable Raila Odinga and the trajectory they have put our country on. It is the only path to a secure, prosperous and stable future any other path leads to darkness and doom,” said Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru flanked by the women leaders including Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga and her Kisumu counterpart Rosa Buyu.
