Gatundu South lawmaker Moses Kuria has added his voice to the ongoing battle of words between Deputy President William Ruto and opposition boss Raila Odinga.
Raila on Saturday claimed that Pope Francis has rejected Ruto's car gift to Kisumu Catholic Archbishop Philip Anyolo, on grounds of being bought by "proceeds of corrupt dealings".
However, speaking in Murang'a on Monday, Kuria threatened to take the former premier head on for including the church in his fights with his political rivals, specifically the DP.
“Some politicians are now interfering with the Catholic Church and I will not allow this to happen. Let’s politicise other things and not the church,” said Kuria as quoted by the Standard.
He was addressing mourners during the funeral service of area Senator Irungu Kangata's mother Margaret Wangechi, a function also attended by the DP.
In a fiery tweet on Sunday, Ruto lashed out at Raila for linking the Mitsubishi Pajero 2012 to corruption, explaining that it was contributed by himself and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kuria's remarks come after he hinted at vying for the presidency in the approaching 2022 elections.
