According to the Standard, Moses Kuria, a Gatundu Member of Parliament, and his counterpart in Laikipia, Hon Festus Mwangi Kiunjuri, have reportedly abandoned DP William Ruto's Tangatanga camp and formed their own political parties. Moses Kuria mourned and offered his genuine sympathies to some Tangatanga allies, such as Irungu Kanata, Ndindi Nyoro, and Kimani Ichungwa, who have repeatedly attacked and threatened them.
"We must not be labeled tribalists when we announce plans to form political parties even as we promise our support for Ruto," Kuria says. "We have also been crucified and labeled as betrayers, but in a real sense, we are doing what is supposed to be done. In 2013, we made such a mistake and that is why we have been suffering in Jubilee."
In response to his assertions, Kikuyu MP Hon Kimani Ichungwa, Kiharu MP Hon Ndindi Nyoro, and Muranga MP Hon Irungu Kangata have stated that Kuria and Kiunjuri's beliefs have been passed down through the generations. According to Nyoro, the people of the Mt Kenya region do not require coalitions, but rather a solution.
