Moses Kuria speaks on his role in Raila’s attack in Kiambu

Raila's motorcade was stoned in Kiambu.

Raila was forced to cut short his campaigns in Thika town, Kiambu county, after rowdy youths stoned his motorcade.

Police fired teargas canisters to disperse the violent youths who accosted Raila as he was addressing Kiambu residents.

Kuria distanced himself from the violence saying that he was in the Coast region when the incident occurred.

“I did not plan the Thika violence on Raila...I was in the Coast region at the time, busy snatching votes from Raila. I have convinced a lot of people in this region and they are now supporting Jubilee. The Coast region is now Jubilee," he said.

The Gatundu legislator challenged why Raila remained silent when President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto received the same treatment in Kisumu a few days earlier.

Kuria maintained Jubilee Party was a peace loving party which cannot indulge in planning for chaos.

“Raila is free to campaign anywhere in all Jubilee strongholds but he should also tell his supporters to welcome Jubilee leaders when they go to seek votes in their zones,” he said.
