A total of 32 Members of County Assembly from Kiambu County have demanded immediate suspension of the vocal Gatundu MP Moses Kuria from vying for any political seat within the country. The MCAs have called on the IEBC to punish the lawmaker following his recent remarks.
Speaking to the press as shared by an online TV channel, the MCAs faulted the diehard Ruto supporter for allegedly inciting them to impeach Kiambu Governor James Nyoro. They claimed that none of them has ever thought of such ill motive about the governor and encouraged any MP willing to impeach the governor to vie for an MCA post in 2022 if they lack someone to impeach in the national assembly.
"Alitukana governor wetu. Such a leader has shown that he has no good conduct and should not vie for any office. Hakuna MCA ako na hayo mawazo na wenye wanafuatilia hayo maneno ni wabunge kutoka serikali ya juu,"they said through their spokesman.
"Tunawaomba hao wabunge kama wameshindwa na kazi yao ama kama wanatamaa ya impeachment na hawaoni mtu huko juu,wakuje huku wakuwe MCAs 2022,"they added.

"Tunataka mhesimiwa wa Gatundu aombe gavana Nyoro msamaha na tunashutumu hiyo kabisa. Tunaomba tume imchukulie hatuwa. Hafai kupatiwa cheti cha kusimama 2022," The MCAs said.
