Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria on Sunday, January 26, 2020, reaffirmed his stance that he would not support Raila Odinga in the foreseeable future.

Speaking to journalists at AIC Milimani, the controversial legislator said that, if supporting the former Prime Minister was the route to heaven, he prefers hell.

“I say yes to BBI and not to Raila, I am not going to agree to allow ourselves to be panel beaten into that line whereby you have to support that monolithic line of thinking”

“Some 2022 line up is being created, I am not part of that line up, if supporting Raila is the ticket to heaven let me go to hell”

“I am supporting BBI, Yes to BBI no to Raila”

“It was a constitutional requirement yesterday to call Raila baba, like my seat was taken because I did not stand (when Raila entered the venue)” Stated Kuria.

A day before Kuria made this statement, he attended the BBI rally that was held in Mombasa alongside Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen among other Tanga Tanga allied leaders.

The forum at the Mama Ngina waterfront was, however, ended prematurely after unrest was detected within the crowd.

The Gatundu South legislator did not get an opportunity to address those who attended the forum.

The media had promised Kenyans a showdown at Mama Ngina Waterfront after leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto announced they would attend the rally despite earlier opposition.

The leaders led by Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen had made an about-turn after skipping the Kisii and Kakamega forums terming them unnecessary rallies.

The showdown that never was, saw a last-minute change of the venue by the organisers after consulting ODM leader Raila Odinga from Tononoka Grounds to Mama Ngina Waterpoint, a place that would make it easy for the police to deal with any breach of peace.
