Duale has persecuted me since 2014: Moses Kuria

Duale has persecuted me since 2014: Moses Kuria

There is a looming fallout between MP Moses Kuria and Leader of majority Aden Duale with the Gatundu South MP accusing his Garrisa Town counterpart of hatching a plan to de-whip him.

In differences which he claims go back as far as 2014, Kuria who has differed with Duale on several occasions claimed his efforts at making Kenya a better nation were constantly frustrated to no end.

For starters, he cited that a majority of the private bills that he has presented to the National Assembly were yet to see the light of day courtesy of Duale.

In the same breath, Kuria also claimed that on account of Duale’s influence, none of his legislative proposals; From the NGO’s Reform Bill (2014) to the Coffee Bill, the Interest Rates Bill had ever been brought to the House.

The outspoken MP who also plans to vie for the presidency in 2022 further claimed that Duale has vowed to stomp out the formation of a 27-member committee whose mandate was to support Matiang’i and his committee implement the president’s executive order.

Kuria had sought to chair the committee whose motion will be presented to parliament when  it resumes sitting from the Christmas break.

Through a post on his social media, Kuria also claimed that Duale was trying to kick him out from two committees- The transport and the budget committees in which he serves.

“So now Aden Duale wants to de-whip me from the two committees that I serve in. First, you are not qualified to do so. This is the work of the party through the Secretary General Raphael Tuju And Chief Whip Ben Washiali,” Kuria wrote in part.

According to Kuria, Duale has picked an issue with his presentation to the Building Bridges Initiative that calls for an inclusive government and an inclusive opposition.

“Having an inclusive government and an inclusive Opposition is an Ideal I will fight for. So now my friend don’t even go to the media to remove me from committees. Follow procedure and I will leave,” Kuria added.

Duale previously accused Kuria of seeking cheap publicity after the latter called for the formation of a 27-member committee to oversee the implementation of the president’s executive order.
