Gatundu South Member of Parliament, Moses Kuria, has left people scratching their heads on social media after saying that he would accompany the National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate Raila Odinga to all his rallies in Central Kenya following a series of heckling.
Not one to keep quiet, the controversial legislator has been vocal lately after both Jubilee and Opposition leaders met resistance at each others’ strongholds.
Most recently, as Zipo.co.ke reported, Raila Odinga was forced to flee from a meeting in Kabarnet, Baringo County on Wednesday and in Thika and Githurai towns on Thursday, July 13.
The angry residents who were chanting pro Jubilee slogans, even pelted his convoy with stones forcing the police to intervene and lob tear gas canisters at the crowd. His bodyguards also pelted his motorcade with stones.
He had earlier in the day made stops in Kenol on his way to Murang’a, where he told residents of the agricultural town that he is not an enemy of the Kikuyu community.
Moses Kuria later condemned the heckling, adding that he would now be accompanying the Nasa honcho to all his campaigns in Uhuru’s bastions in a bid to maintain sanity.
“From now on I will personally attend all Raila Odinga’s functions in Central to deal personally with any hecklers. This is not the way were brought up and socialised. Where have you visited lately?” He posed on Facebook.
Uhuru’s digital guy, Dennis Itumbi, also used the same social media platform to air similar sentiments.
“Good People, No need to shout down anyone because you do not agree with them. It is unnecessary.
I know heckling gives a feeling of temporary victory. Truth is that heckling is the highest form of cowardice.
Listen even to those you disagree with and be brave enough to embrace or reject them on the ballot. Not by heckling them!” He said.
