Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria arrested over hate speech

By Fay Ngina | September 11th 2017

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has been arrested and is being detained at the Pangani police station after the remarks he made on his Facebook page on 5 September 2017.

The Gatundu MP vowed to start a manhunt for at least 70,000 people who voted for Raila and another 200,000 who never voted at all.

"Kiambu has spoken. They have said Wembe ni ule ule (the razor blade is the same one). Wangige and Kiambu people are seething with anger. One million of their votes were cancelled by four people," He posted.

"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."

Jubilee Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju condemned what Moses Kuria had posted and this is what he had to say;

“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 which are preaching the wrong thing for this country. I can say that without any fear or confliction…”

Former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama has also been arrested for the same reasons as Moses Kuria's. He is currently being held in Kangundo police station.
