Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on the tackle with media personality Gerald Bitok said the government has impoverished its citizens by using their cash to pay themselves salaries.

" In Kenya, there are 50 Million people and only less than 1 million people work in Government. The country's revenue income is almost Sh 2 Trillion. Now, half of the revenue is used for salaries and other recurrent expenditure, " he said.

" That means 49 million people wake up every morning to work for less than a million people why at the end they get nothing, " he added.

" 49 million Kenyans wake up every morning to go and work to pay lump sums to a handful (1m) of civil servants. Recurrent expenditures show that much of the Kenya revenue is used to pay salaries to the government servants, " he added.

On the hustler nation narrative, he explains what the movement vision is.

" The Hustler movement is all about fighting for the rights of the oppressed. The so-called dynasties have led us to more sufferings which have resulted in economic backwardness, " he said.

The Gatundu South MP alleged the political bromance and alliance between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga will soon come to an end.

Kuria has been a strong critic of the handshake ever since he shifted allegiance from the president to Deputy President William Ruto.

"This is like a man who is running after your father for a title. Raila is trying to snatch a title from President Uhuru Kenyatta, " he said.

"If Uhuru wants to speak to GEMA he should come back to Limuru where his ambitions were endorsed. The Sagana meeting was a gathering to intimidate people with state power, not a community gathering,'' he said.

On matters concerning parliament, MP Moses Kuria explained that it has failed.

" I cannot take a bill to parliament to MPs to reduce salaries. Reasons, few to none will sign it. Another one is, MPs will not debate it and if they will a large number will not come to the chambers, hence it will go nowhere, " he added on the side talks.

"As a parliament, we have failed Kenyans because we have sold to them the romantic story that all is well while it is not, " he added.
