Leave empty threats to school children, Kuria tells Jubilee MPs

Nairobi - Leave empty threats to school children, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has told Jubilee MPs.
Kuria, speaking Sunday, stated that MPs in the Jubilee Party who are against him supporting candidates of his choice in the 2017 elections must let him be.
He was speaking to Nairobi MPs who have told off their Central Kenya counterparts over their choice of certain candidates for the position of Nairobi Governor come 2017.
Kuria and a number of MPs have moved towards Eugene Wamalwa to the distress of other candidates.
But Kuria says that he is given the opportunity to choose whoever he wants thanks to the new Constitution.
" No one can say that Kuria is a bad person because he has chosen to support someone else. It is my right to support who I want, wherever I want," he stated.
MPs led by Starehe's Maina Kamanda have been urging leaders from other parts of the country to keep off the process, saying that they are causing instability within the Jubilee ranks by doing so.
They have also been told to leave Nairobi to its owners, an accusation Kuria says is ridiculous.
" Nairobi is the Capital City of Kenya. We all have interest in the city as Kenyans," he continued.
There is a tough battlefield set up for the coming months for the Nairobi seat, with a number of leaders directly interested in the seat.
Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko, MPs Dennis Waweru and Johnson Sakaja, as well as former MP Margaret Wanjiru together with Wamalwa are interested in the Nairobi seat.
