Miguna Miguna explains why Moses Kuria, Kabogo don’t care about about DP Ruto
By Joshua Cheloti
Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna has waded into an ongoing internal wrangle within the Kenya Kwanza alliance.
This wrangle has seen bad blood develop between Mathira Member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua and his Gatundu South counterpart Moses Kuria as well as former Kiambu governor William Kabogo.
Kuria and Kabogo recently had a fallout with the Kenya Kwanza running mate, due to what has been seen as a battle for the Kiambu gubernatorial seat.
The duo are vying for the seat on their respective political parties, and are facing UDA’s Kimani Wamatangi.
They have however accused Gachagua of favouring Wamatangi, a move that has seen them withdraw from all Kenya Kwanza political activities in the county.
But aside from taking a step back from the Kenya Kwanza activities, the two have also hit out at Gachagua, branding him a dictator.
“Maneno ya sisi na UDA imeanza kusambaratika kwa sababu yule jamaa ni dictator. Mimi ndiye de-facto leader ya wakaazi wa Mlima Kenya na hiyo inamuuma,” Kabogo, a Tujibebe party leader said in a political rally.
Similar sentiments have been made by The Service Party (TSP) leader Mwangi Kiunjuri.
With the trio seen as opposed to Gachagua’s elevation to the running mate position, some argue that they have a soft spot for Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Karua, who is the Azimio running mate.
Miguna Miguna however argues that Kabogo and Moses Kuria prefer Karua to Gichagua because of their 2027 political ambitions.
The controversial lawyer is of the opinion that the Narc Kenya party leader is weak and unpopular, hence will not be an impediment to their ambitions.
He also notes that the duo does not care about DP Ruto.
“FACTS ONLY, PLEASE William Kabogo and Moses Kuria prefer weak and unpopular Kikuyu running-mates like Martha Karua because of their 2027 ambitions. They consider @rigathi an impediment to the realization of their ambitions. They don’t care about UDA or Ruto,” Miguna Miguna tweeted.
Both Kabogo and Moses Kuria have in the past attempted to position themselves as Mount Kenya kingpins – once President Uhuru Kenyatta ends his term, and are said to be harbouring presidential ambitions.
A win for Deputy President William Ruto in the August 9 poll will likely elevate Gachagua to the Mount Kenya defacto leader.
