After putting on a massive show in Juja where they defeated Jubilee on May, many pundits have predicted another Tangatanga victory in what is now turning out to be a Mt Kenya supremacy battle between president Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto.
Ahead of the upcoming elections, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has finally come clean on the reason why his PEP party which had won in Juja decided to withdraw from the race in Kiambaa.
While speaking at Kameme FM on Monday morning, Kuria revealed that he was forced to make the painful decision after DP Ruto beseeched him to step down in favor of UDA's Njuguna.
According to Kuria, Ruto argued that since PEP had already clinched a parliamentary seat in Juja, it was needed for the party to step down in Kiambaa so that UDA which do not have a single MP yet can have a chance of getting one.
Kuria opined that the move was necessary for the sake of Tangatanga's unity. The controversial MP however revealed that the decision was so painful since it curtailed the political ambition of PEP's candidate Raymond Kuria.
Nonetheless, he informed that he will never repeat such a mistake adding that his party will now compete with UDA henceforth.
