Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has taken a swipe at President Kenyatta, accusing him of wasting his second term.
Speaking when he accompanied Deputy President William Ruto to a function at Kandara Technical Training Institute in Murang’a County on Friday, Kuria claimed that Uhuru has nothing to show more than two years into his second and final term in office.
He alleged that the development Kenyans are enjoying at the moment including the construction of roads, the connection of electricity and free maternity services were achieved during Kenyatta’s first term.
"All the work that you see here happened over the first term of Jubilee's administration. That's when we built these technical institutions, that's when we connected electricity when we built roads and implemented free maternity. All that happened during the first term, not the second," Kuria stated.
He claimed that all President Uhuru has done in his second term was advancing his alleged unity pact with ODM leader Raila Odinga through the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
"Do you see any development in the country now? There's no progress coming from that house, even a rat can't find something to eat. This term is utter nonsense, a complete waste," he added.
He dismissed claims that BBI is meant to unite the country, terming it a plot by selfish politicians to create leadership positions for themselves.
"All the people you see here are just out for their own self-interest. I don't have a problem with BBI, I have a problem with a BBI that seeks to fix politicians in certain positions. It is this BBI that I reject and I will continue rejecting it even if it costs me my life."
