Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria is a stressed man this morning after former Citizen TV anchor Janet Mbugua dropped her interest to be his deputy governor in the Kiambu County governorship race.
Taking to his social media pages, the distressed Kuria revealed that Janet had scored highest marks after applying for the position in a talent search.
However, due to unforseen circumstances the media personality has made a u-turn.
“I am shattered. After scoring the highest marks in the talent search for Kiambu Deputy Governor, Janet Mbugua will not be taking up the job due to unforeseen personal emergencies that she has to attend to in the immediate term,” reads part of Kuria’s statement.
Moses Kuria has since maintained that search to find the most suitable candidate to replace Janet will continue.
“My administration will definitely find a way to benefit from Janet’s experience and capacity in the future. I feel the loss. Janet is a huge inspiration for the youth, for professionals, for women and for young mothers of this country,” he stated.
On February, the Chama Cha Kazi party leader made the official statement to vie for Kiambu Governorship using his party ticket.
“The people’s voice is the voice of God. So please, God, assist me. I feel protected under your protection,” Kuria said.
The MP had earlier claimed he would not go for any elective post in the upcoming general elections and many expected he would to go for nothing less than a runningmate post, but he changed his mind.
In the last two years, the second-term MP has positioned himself as a possible running mate in an attempt to entice significant presidential candidates.
Kuria has since declared support for the UDA party leader deputy president William Ruto in the presidential seat.
Kuria will now compete against incumbent governor James Nyoro, as well as previous governors William Kabogo and Ferdinand Waititu and others.
Senator Kimani Wamatangi is also rumored to be considering a run for governor.
