Moses Kuria is Lucky to Be Alive – Alice Wahome

Kandara Member of Parliament Alice Wahome has revealed that his Gatundu South counterpart is lucky to be alive following his belligerent ejection from a BBI rally held in Kitui on February 1st.

While speaking during K24’s Punchline show hosted by Anne Kiguta, Wahome blasted the BBI protagonists allied to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga for what she termed as hypocrisy. In particular, she singled out the ODM supremo, Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina and Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu for their controversial sentiments and actions during BBI meetings.

“Ledama repeated the same sentiments during the public rally. I think Raila is making very dangerous statements. You’ve seen how they treated Moses in Mombasa and Kitui. He is lucky to be alive. Ngilu obviously incited people to throw him out of the rally,” Wahome said.

“First we must deal with what happened in Narok. Those people who are not Maa were asked to leave the planning meeting.”

Wahome is allied to the Tangatanga faction of Jubilee Party which supports Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 bid for the presidency.

The vocal MP also revealed that she was not in support of the BBI process since, according to her, it is a total failure and a secret move to strategize for the upcoming 2022 elections.

Wahome also claimed that the deep state was working tirelessly and desperate to ensure that Deputy President leaves office, but said that the DP was serving under the Constitution, and the only way to impeach him was to follow the due process.

“These people are desperate on the Deputy President leaving office. The DP is serving under the Constitution, you can’t remove him unless you follow the process of impeaching him. They can shout but to impeach him, they must come to Parliament,” she added.

When asked whether she agreed that public officers should step aside when implicated in corruption cases, the Kandara legislator said that elected leaders are not subjected to such laws and only appointed civil servants should lose their positions.

“Public officers, yes but elected leaders, no. Under the law, even if I am involved in a case, I cannot be denied the right to contest for a seat.”

She also took a swipe at the opposition for seemingly absconding their duty (of ensuring accountability) and being in bed with the government as well as praising the regime when they should be holding it in check.

Wahome also restated that her life was still in danger following threatening calls she received for her firm political stand and her remarks which she directed at President Uhuru in December.

The MP also claimed that some Jubilee leaders had held meetings with “some goons” to plan how they will be disrupting her events in the constituency, but she said she will never be cowed in her political quest and in exercising her freedom of association.

“Yes, in December I received two phone calls, one didn’t go through. When I picked the second one, the caller said he had been asked to kill me,” she said.
