Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has ruled out possibility of him joining Azimio La Umoja Movement led by ODM leader Raila Odinga.
As the country prepares for the August 9 elections, Kuria has stated that the Azimio La Umoja camp is not an option for him.
Speaking in Kiambu County today during the burial of the mother to the former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, Kuria said he will always be on the winning side.
“I might not know where I am, but I know where I can’t be in this life, I’m the one to make the decision about my direction, you’ll never see me in Azimio…and even if I die, don’t take me to Azimio (Kuna kitu ninajua, pengine sijui pahali niliko lakini najua pahali siko. Unajua kwa hii uhai mimi ndio ninajiamulia, hakuna siku utanipata kwa Azimio…lakini hata nikikufa, msinipeleke kwa Azimio), Kuria said.
Kuria recently met with One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principals and announced that they had agreed to collaborate.
He claimed he informed them that if they team up with Azimio, he will not join them.
Kuria, who will vie for the Kiambu governor seat in the August polls, made the announcement on Saturday saying will he vie on his Chama Cha Kazi party ticket.
Kuria had earlier announced that he will not be going for any elective seat in the August polls.
The change of mind comes as a surprise to many who thought the MP would go for nothing short of a running mate in the August 9, elections.
The second term MP had positioned himself as a potential running mate in the last two years in a move to gain attraction from key presidential candidates.
His fall-out with deputy president William Ruto saw him part ways with the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) camp that he had supported for a long period.
