Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has once again defended himself over allegations of attacking President Uhuru Kenyatta's leadership.

In a clip on December 31, at the Thika Stadium, Kiambu County, the lawmaker made remarks suggesting that the president has ignored his Central region backyard on matters development.

He bashed the President for taking development initiatives elsewhere and only launching senseless ones in the region, for instance, issuing certificates to drunks.

However, in an interview on Citizen TV Thursday evening, the controversial lawmaker claimed that he was taken out of context.

Kuria said that the remark was aimed at the Kiambu County government.

"I was misquoted. I was speaking to the county government and urging it to initiate projects and call the President to launch them. It was never about the President " he said.

He called upon the Governor Ferdinand Waititu led-government to consider launching more important initiatives to spare the Head of State from embarrassments.

He also rubbished claims that the region is well developed and should not demand more projects.

"We need more, there is always room to do more. Everybody wants more," he said.

He added that he has personally apologized to the president over the remarks which he maintained were misunderstood.
