Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria caught his followers and those of the Deputy President William Ruto by a surprise few days ago after announcing that he will not contest in any sat in the coming general elections.
Most people thought that Kuria was taking them for a ride but he has since stood with the decision.
Kuria in an interview with KTN News yesterday, stood his ground that he is keen to build his Chama Cha Kazi and unite the region ahead of the polls, adding that the party will field candidates in all the posts except the presidency.
He further argued that his decision was contributed by his constituents who felt he heeded to hold a more powerful office since he had delivered much as their MP.
Kuria further revealed before taking the decision, he had talked with the residents, and assured that he will be active in politics outside the government to ensure their needs are sorted by the next administration.
"Uniting the region and building the CCK party are full time jobs. I have talked with my electorates, although they are not happy. This is a discussion I had with them as we interact closely, and I ensured there were no gaps in what an MP is supposed to have done," posed Kuria.
