Moses Kuria arrested for punching, kicking woman

NAIROBI
By Mireri Junior | January 10th 2020

Controversial Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria (pictured) has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman.

The MP was taken to Kilimani Police Station to record statement over the assault.

Kuria is reported to have assaulted Joyce Wanja alias Wagichungumwa at Royal Media Services Studios where the two met to discuss the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

Wanja, an activist, who works as a media commentator claimed that the Gatundu South MP descended on her with kicks and blows while she was in her line of duty preparing to go on air for Inooro TV Kirîrîmbi show.

According to Wanja, Kuria assaulted her after she had asked him to retract some of the statements he had made against women at a function to help orphans in Kiambu in the presence of children.

Kuria had allegedly accused women of wearing smelly panties. He also said most of the women were whores who could be bedded anywhere without shame.

“Whatever he said about women was demeaning and the remarks were made in the presence of children, that is why I told him to rethink and retract them, but instead he attacked me,” she said in a video that has now gone viral.

Wanja pleaded with the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) and the police to ensure she got justice.

She said even after reporting the matter to the police, no action has been forthcoming, saying if not punished, the MP would make it a habit of abusing and assaulting women.

“It is now weeks since I was assaulted yet no action action has been taken against Kuria. Is it because I am too small or I don’t have money? The DCI and DPP must help me get justice,”

Wanja, recorded a statement at the Kilimani Police Station where she says she can only hope Moses Kuria is not too mighty for justice to be ensured.

Four witnesses present at the time Kuria attacked JWanja have said they are ready to testify against the MP.
