Which Way Kuria? Kuria Moves Has Sparked Mixed Reactions On Who He Preferred As His Candidature

Moses Kuria, Gatundu South MP, has sparked mixed reactions about his political objectives ahead of his grand reception rally next month.

The MP will hold a prayer rally at Thika Stadium on February 19 while he recovers from third-degree burns sustained after his electric blanket caught fire and scorched his feet.

The congressman is anticipated to announce his political ambitions on August 9, especially after announcing last year that he would not seek for any public office this year.

Kuria, who is also the leader of Chama Cha Kazi, has been torn between supporting Deputy President William Ruto's hustler country campaign and opposing it.

The MP has been dishing out political optics, prompting rumors that he is warming up to ODM leader Raila Odinga's Azimio la Umoja.

The MP is a founding member of the 'hustler nation movement,' but his refusal to join Ruto's United Democratic Alliance and instead push his CCK party has alienated him.

While Kuria maintained last year that he would remain solidly in the hustler nation, several barely disguised political attacks aimed at Ruto indicate a probable increasing political schism.

He was a pillar of the Tangatanga movement before being hospitalized, and he accompanied Ruto to most of his political events, enhancing his prominence as a likely running mate.

On Monday, Kuria fired a salvo at Ruto on his Facebook page, expressing his opposition to accepting other parties and enabling them to join without losing their identity or fielding their own candidates.
