A day after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria blasted President Uhuru Kenyatta for neglecting Kiambu County and in extension his backyard Mt Kenya region, powerful forces have started offensive on Kuria’s family.
Kiambu Governor Ferdinard Waititu yesterday sent Kuria’s brother, John Ngigi Kuria on a compulsory leave, to come back on Valentine Day. Ngigi Kuria is the County Chief Officer for Agriculture, Crop Production, Irrigation and Marketing in Kiambu County.
Now word has it Waititu could have received orders from the above to fight Kuria.
On New Year concert in Thika Stadium, Kuria said Uhuru was taking his people as trash, focusing on developments in other areas and only to officiate rewarding of rehabilitated drunkards in his backyard.
“Kazi yako ni kufungua maendeleo kwingine but Kiambu unakuja kupeana certificates za pombe. Uratukua wana” Kuria stated.

Waititu sent Ngigi home saying; “You are hereby advised to proceed for your annual 30 days leave. You will be required to resume duty on February 14, 2019. In this regard handover your duties and any county property, tools or equipment in your custody to Chief Officer Livestock, Fisheries and Veterinary Services”.
William Kabogo who has been in fights with Kuria responded to the move thus; “Even assuming Moses Kuria has done something wrong to Waititu. Ezekiel 18:20 The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son”.
Kuria says Waititu’s directive was driven by malice and that he feels his life is in danger.
“My brother went through a very competitive and open recruitment process. I never interfered nor influenced. He has a MSc in Agricultural Economics from University of Nairobi and many years of experience. Clearly Waititu is acting out of political malice but he is not acting alone. I ask Kenyans to pray for my safety,” Kuria said.
