Tuesday October 23, 2018-Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, has said he will vie for the presidency in 2022.
In an interview with Capital FM on Monday, Kuria said his name will be on the presidential ballot come 2022.
The controversial legislator said his main aim of vying for the presidency is to help millions of Kenyans who are suffering because of corruption and mismanagement of public resources.
“If you look at the issues affecting this nation like those of the youth unemployment, use of SME, they do not know tribe.”
“The same hunger that is biting people in Gatundu is the same one that is biting someone else in Mombasa, Kisumu or wherever there is,” Kuria said.
The lawmaker also maintained that contrary to popular opinion, he is not tribal, accusing his opponents of painting him as a “tribalist, thief and corrupt.”
“I think their symbol needs to be a brush.”
“When you join them, they paint you white when you leave them they paint you black.”
“I am not a tribalist,” he said.
Kuria's announcement comes even as Deputy President William Ruto tries to woo Central Kenya to support his presidential bid in 2022.
