'Hizo Deni Tutakosa Kulipa' Moses Kuria Claims Chinese Debt Will be Disregarded if Kenya Kwanza Wins

Controversial Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has today claimed that the huge Chinese debt that is threatening to cripple the Kenyan economy and subjecting poor citizens to exploitative taxation will not be a priority if Kenya Kwanza coalition forms government.

Speaking in Nakuru County where UDA deputy presidential candidate Rigathi Gachagua led a series of campaign stopovers, Kuria further alledged that the Chinese contractors have been permitted to import lorries duty free only for the same trucks to find their way into transport business, competing with Kenyans who have spent a fortune on their investments.

According to Kuria, the Chinese should only offer market to Kenyan produce unlike now where they are engaging themselves in all manner of exploits from as low as hawking.

The sensitivity of Kuria's utterances have since provoked an intense debate and reactions on social media where many have questioned its practicality.

Some quarters have also questioned why deputy President William Ruto has been taking credit of some of the revolutionary projects such as the standard gauge railway which were financed by China while at the same time, his lieutenants are projecting non-committment if they rise to power.
