Chama cha kazi (CCK)party leader Moses Kuria has demanded a respect for his party from United Democratic Alliance(UDA) party members following their win in the last tightly contested kiagu by-election.
Through his official Facebook page, the Gatundu south lawmaker asked the UDA party to show respect or atleast tone down the disrespect in their celebrations after winning the Kiagu ward by-election that was contacted on 16th December 2021.
“We deserve respect or in the absence of which the least we request is less kiburi and less madharau. 2022 here we come,” said the lawmaker.
The Mp went further and explained that for the period he’s been hospitalized, his party had grown in resonating with the people’s needs, showing it was neither a regional not ethnic based party.
“For the 3 months that I have been in a hospital bed till now, you have demonstrated that you believe in our Kazi Na Pesa message of jobs creation and entrepreneurship. You have demonstrated that we are not a regional party, an ethnic party or a small party,” added Kuria.
Kuria, however, thanked the people of kiagu for turning up in large and voting for the party’s candidate despite knowing they might lose to UDA’s candidate.
He pointed out that the results had shown his party was the future of Meru and the large Mt. Kenya region’s political landscape.
“From the bottom of my heart, I take this opportunity to thank the people of Kiagu Ward in Meru County. Despite our candidate Milton Mwenda Kabobo losing to UDA with a paltry 200 votes, you have sent a strong message that the future of Meru, Mt Kenya and Kenya is Chama Cha Kazi,” said Kuria.
The outspoken legislator added that the party had performed beyond expectations considering that the party is still young and new.
“For a party that was registered on 17th August 2021, we have done very well,” added the lawmaker.
