Gatundu MP Moses Kuria poured his heart out in regards to funds being used in the BBI campaign.
Kuria, who is never shy of expressing himself, was on the spotlight once more over his provocative remarks.
The controversial politician during a burial ceremony attended by Deputy President William Ruto, remarked that the usage of government money to facilitate the project was uncalled for.
The MP noted that it was a waste of time diverting resources on something that has already been accepted by Kenyans.
He further expressed that the team allied to Ruto was not greedy like their counterparts.
“Mimi ukiniuliza hii sarakasi yote kuzunguka kutumia pesa ni ya nini na hii kitu tushakubali. Wacha wale wanakula wakule wanone. Lakini sisi vile tulitoka pale Bomas, hapo ndio sisi tuko(If you ask me what this drama of campaigning using government funds is for yet we have accepted it. Let the people eating eat till they are fat. We, on the other hand, are the same as the time we left Bomas), uttered the lawmaker.
Kuria’s sentiment comes a moth after Ruto complained of the same issue.
During a public address, the DP had strongly condemned the various countrywide BBI meetings.
The second in command highlighted that the forums were being used to embezzle the taxpayers’ funds.
He reiterated that instead of using public funds, those behind the campaign should have made enough copies for citizens to read as agreed upon during the launch of the report at Bomas.
The Jubilee party member questioned when the decision changed to have specific leaders, steering teams, in pushing for the initiative.
“Ilibadilika siku gani sasa tunaambiwa kuna viongozi wa vyama wanataka kusomea wanainchi ndio waamulie wanainchi, ilibadilika siku gani?(When did it change that we are being told there are leaders of certain parties want to read and decide for Kenyans, when did this change?) questioned DP Ruto.
The BBI rallies have not been kind on the TangaTanga camp more specifically on Kuria.
The tough-talking legislator was snubbed during the Mombasa BBI rally after his colleague Majority leader of Senate Kipchumba Murkomen was given a chance to express his opinions.
When the roads shifted to the Kitui BBI forum, the trouble laden politician stole the show in the most bizarre way.
Kuria was almost ejected from the meeting after it emerged there were no seats reserved for him and Murkomen.
Things went from bad to worse when Kuria opted to sit on the ground in front of ODM leader Raila Odinga.
The action angered Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu who ordered for his removal from the event, a decision that was objected by the crowd.
The lawmaker was later given a seat, however, none of the DP’s allies was given a chance to address the people gathered at the venue.
