A brief confrontation ensued at the entrance of Thika Stadium, in Kiambu county after supporters of Gatundu South and Chama Cha Kazi leader Moses Kuria clashed with and chased away occupants of a UDA branded campaign vehicle outside the thanks-giving rally venue, moments before Moses Kuria arrived.
An eyewitness and one of the supporters of the legislator who has been away in the Gulf state of Dubai for treatment said they had chased the UDA group away because they were campaigning for the wheelbarrow outfit at their rally.
“We have ejected them because they were campaigning outside the stadium,” one of the supporters said.
Speaking at the Thika Stadium thanksgiving rally, also attended by a number of Mt Kenya politicians, including Martha Karua and Mwangi Kiunjuri, Kuria disclosed he had received an emissary from one of the two leading presidential candidates asking him to be his running mate but he was not having sleepless nights about it.
”I have received emissaries from one of the two leading coalitions offering me the running mate position. I am not having sleepless nights about it. The tribulations of the current Deputy President have made me and many others be afraid of that office,” he said.
