Wednesday June 19, 2019 - Nyeri Township Member of Parliament, Ngunjiri Wambugu, has named his Gatundu South counterpart, Moses Kuria, as the inspiration behind the Kieleweke faction of Jubilee.
The group which brings on board a number of Jubilee Party members opposed to Deputy President William Ruto has since declared war on the DP and his 2022 presidential bid.
Speaking during an interview on Tuesday, Wambugu said that he crafted the party in defiance to Kuria's initial remarks that he has all the Kikuyu votes with him and will put them where he pleases.
He said that the plan was to, just like the name means (it shall be understood), prove people with such thoughts wrong and to prepare Kenyans for possible changes in 2022.
"Moses is the person who actually made me start Kieleweke.”
“Sometime early last year he used to go to Rift Valley and tell people from Rift Valley that he has all the vote of the Kikuyu in his pockets and is going to bank them in the ballot," he said.
The interview was also attended by Kuria and Kandara MP, Alice Wahome.
However, Kuria dismissed these claims saying that the MP is lying and is not accurate in his claims.
"That is not very accurate.”
“Am asking you to start being truthful at your age.”
“He (Ngunjiri) is asking for too much," he said.
