'Step Aside For The New Don' How By Election Results Could Shape Up Mount Kenya Politics

Gatundu, South Member of Parliament, brought a massive victory to Tangatanga in the just concluded by-elections. Many thought that he could not do it, but he defied odds and beat the Jubilee Party candidate granting Ruto's political camp bragging rights in the region. Once a close ally to President Uhuru Kenyatta, Moses Kuria faced hurdles in his one-person campaign team, popularizing the PEP candidate. The campaign period was marked with several reports of intimidation by the police, but that did not derail the people's will.

The celebrations in Juja constituency already began, still ongoing, with whispers of possibly a new king in Mount Kenya. Moses Kuria has continued to ride the momentum, giving plenty of nods to social media endorsements from other politicians.

UDA delegates, including Dennis Itumbi, have expressed confidence in the MP to carry the mantle once President Uhuru is retired. President Uhuru Kenyatta has continued to remain silent, ignore Juja politics. Instead, he has chosen to focus resources on the BBI standoff.

Moses Kuria has been a point man in Mount Kenya politics for a long time now, it is just a matter of time before he officially dethrones Uhuru Kenyatta.
