Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has hit back at President Uhuru Kenyatta barely hours after his tongue-lashing against those accusing his administration of not doing enough for his Mt Kenya backyard.
Kuria said though he agreed with the President’s position that development is meant for every part of the nation, the outspoken legislator insisted that the Central region is not receiving development projects as it should.
“H.E the President is 100 per cent right…we need development in every corner of this country. It is in that spirit and in line with the President’s position that I believe Mt Kenya also deserves development just like any other region,” he said.
Earlier, a visibly angry Uhuru Kenyatta addressing comments by both Kuria and Ngunjiri dismissed them saying he would refuse to be drawn into those politics.
“Wale wanatapatapa huko na siasa duni, sisi tumesema kwamba maendeleo haitakua inapatikana kwa sababu kiongozi ametoka pahali fulani.
“We want a country where every single citizen is entitled to development regardless of where the leader comes from. Kwa hivyo hao washenzi waachane na mimi ” He said
