Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba accuses Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria of being an alcohol addict.
Wamuchomba, who was reacting to Kuria's claims that President Kenyatta has neglected Kiambu and turned residents into voting machines, says Kuria should be taken to an alcohol rehabilitation facility.
While dismissing Kuria's claims, Wamuchomba says the MP disrespected the President by addressing him while under the influence of alcohol.
Gathoni has invited Kuria to join Mama Care Rehabilitation Centre, which helps alcohol addicts overcome their problem.
"Am helping drunkards in Kiambu and am calling upon Hon Moses Kuria who recently addressed the President of the Republic of Kenya while visibly drunk to apologize to the nation. I also call upon him to come to our center where our doctors will treat him for seven days so that he can regain his senses," says Gathoni.
Speaking on New Year's Eve at Thika Stadium, a seemingly tipsy Kuria criticized President Uhuru accusing him of going to Kiambu to issue certificates to rehabilitated addicts instead of launching projects as he does in other regions.
“We have been rendered into voting machines but development is channeled elsewhere; we must shelve that nonsense."
“I want to tell the President to launch water, new roads, and electrification projects. We were with him in Kisumu where he launched new roads but coming to Kiambu, he only issued certificates to rehabilitated alcoholics,” said Kuria.
Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has also criticized Kuria over his sentiments, terming them disrespectful.
“How could Kuria say that Uhuru should wacha ujinga, he should feel ashamed, if you feel that the president has failed in one way, at least use decorum and protocol to pass the message,” Kabogo says.
