Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria.
Gatundu South member of parliament, Moses Kuria, has become one of the most unpredictable politicians in the recent days. It has become extremely difficult to establish his side of political inclination.
There have been some reports resurfacing from political analysts that the legislator might end up joining president Uhuru's camp due to his recent misunderstanding with the deputy president over the party politics.
However, it seems like Kuria is not planning to join Kieleweke anytime soon. This is after he launched another attack against president Uhuru's government over inflated costs in the construction of various roads.
Reacting to a post by Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) on the construction of Lamu-Ijara-Garissa all weather road, Kuria expressed his dissatisfaction on the cost of gravelling per Kilometer. The road is said to cost Ksh 86 million in gravelling one Kilometer. The lawmaker argued that the gravelling of a road using murram cannot exceed 4 million per Kilometer.
"Lakini hii Kenya kweli. All gravel road for Ksh 86 million per Kilometer? And Lamu to Isiolo is all murram for free everywhere? In our constituencies where it is difficult to get murram it costs Ksh 4 million per Kilometer. I thought wezi wote walifukuzwa kutoka kwa serikali!" Alluded Kuria.
Inflated costs of development projects has been named as one form of corruption that has been hindering service delivery to Kenyans. The SGR project was also named as a cash cow where billions of money were lost through graft in form of cost inflation.
