Kiambu: MP Moses Kuria Reacts To Junet's Claims On How Nyanza Would 'Monopolize' Government In 2022

Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has finally broken his silence after his Suna East counterpart Junet Mohammed made assertions on how Nyanza region would Monopolize government if former prime minister Raila Odinga wins presidency in 2022.

In a Facebook message on Saturday night, Kuria acknowledged Junet's remarks. Further, the vocal MP noted that his colleagues message justified the reason why Mt Kenya region leaders had been slapping prospective presidential candidates with demands of 40% share of government resources and ministries.

The lawmaker rubished allegations made by the Suna East legislator on government on how the region had enjoyed government leadership positions and privileges courtesy of their politicians winning presidential elections.

He insisted that before Junet makes the arguments, he, together with Raila's team should make a promise of allocating 40% of the resources and leadership posts to Mt Kenya.

"If you listened to the Junet Mohammed Video, you will understand why Mt Kenya is demanding 40% share of government and everything. Na tutiraguagua ! Before you say we have enjoyed power for I don't know how many years, wekelea 40% first. Haiiiiiya !" Read Kuria's message.

This comes after Junet argued that if Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader becomes president in 2022, his government will belong to Nyanza only while others while be aliens in it.

The sentiments attracts attention at the time when deputy president Dr William Ruto and Raila as set to lock horns in a presumably two-horse race. The two are traversing different parts of the country, marketing their agenda while keeping an eye moreso on Mt Kenya.
