Moses Kuria's Projected Move That Will Give Raila Odinga A Political Lifeline As DP Ruto Loses

Moses Kuria's name is inextricably linked to Mount Kenya politics. The Gathundu South Member of Parliament (MP) is one of the key players in the 2022 succession debate.

Kuria is a member of the Mt Kenya Unity Forum, a group that includes Mwangi Kiunjuri (TSP) and Martha Karua, among others (Narc-Kenya). The team is excited to bring Mt Kenya together and ensure that the region is represented fairly in the next government.

Moses, a close ally and confidante of William Ruto, is expected to throw his support behind the self-proclaimed chief hustler, but politics is a fickle game, and he is expected to make a move that puts DP Ruto's political future in jeopardy.

Kiunjuri and Karua have both sent not-so-good-sigans to Samoei, and Kuria is likely to follow suit. Mt Kenya will support a presidential candidate who promises to decentralize power by amending the constitution, according to a TSP leader.

Mwangi's words echo Kuria's constant preaching that the region should have a fair share in the next government, but Samoei has dismissed their calls to sign a memorandum of understanding and cooperation. Raila Odinga, among the remaining statehouse hopefuls, is the one who promotes the policies that Kiunjuri and Kuria are advocating for.

If Kuria follows his ideology, he will most likely join Raila's camp, increasing Jakom's chances of unseating Jomo Kenyatta's son. Politics is a game of chances; anything can happen.
