Gatundu South Member of Parliament, Moses Kuria, has found himself in hot soup once more thanks to his loose tongue. The politician is accused of uttering inflammatory remarks on Wednesday, September 6, about Raila Odinga and his supporters.
Kuria took to his official Facebook page to launch a scathing attack and threatened to hunt down the over 70,000 Kiambu residents who voted for the “demon” – meaning the National Super Alliance leader. He also vowed to marshal the more than 200,000 people who did not turn out to cast a vote in the August 18 poll.
“Kiambu has spoken. They have said Wembe ni Ule Ule. Wangige and Kiambu people are seething with anger. 1 million of their votes were cancelled by four people. But they are so ready to do it again. And even more. Manhunt is on tonight for the 200,000 people who did not vote and the 70,000 that voted for that other demon,” Kuria’s post screams on Facebook.
That same evening, the Jubilee Party Secretary General – Raphael Tuju – said that he will take action against Kuria for he was out of order.
“Moses Kuria is out of order and I will not accept this kind of language. If it is true it is from his official Facebook page, then I will take it up with him because it is unacceptable. Simple, and it cannot be Jubilee policy. We cannot be put on the spot by mistakes of a few elements in the party who are preaching the wrong thing for this country. I can say that without any fear or confliction,” said on NTV‘s Sidebar.
Kuria who like other Jubilee Party leaders hit the ground running to campaign for Uhuru Kenyatta in the repeat polls scheduled for October 17, has resorted to attacking Raila Odinga and the entire Opposition brigade.
This however is not the first time the Gatundu legislator has found himself in trouble for insulting Raila, he was at one point arrested for using unflattering words against the former Prime Minister.
