The Jubilee Party is now scheming to remove Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria from all committees he is in leading a to new friction between Kuria and National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale.
In a Facebook post shared on Monday, February 11, Kuria accused Duale of scheming to have him ejected from Transport and Budget committees. He went on to challenge the Majority Leader to follow the right procedure if he wants him gone .
He wrote,”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. Secondly, I have no problem being removed from the Transport and Budget Committees as long as the correct procedure is followed. Bring it on ! I serve in the committees at the pleasure of the party”.
Kuria claims that Duale’s plan to have him removed from the committees have been instigated by 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 further affirmed.
So now Aden Duale wants to dewhip me from the two committees that I serve in. First, you are not qualified to do so….
Kuria has in the recent past been critical of the Jubilee government . Kuria had recently questioned Uhuru’s presidency and how it had benefited the Mount Kenya region.His remarks sparked angry reactions from both the president and a section of leaders from the Mt Kenya region and Jubilee party who demanded that he apologise to Uhuru.
