Kajiado Governor David Nkedianye has accused Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria of plotting the burning of ODM offices in the county.
Moses Kuria linked to burning of ODM offices
Moses Kuria came here and said that ODM would cease to exist in Kajiado
The Orange party suffered huge losses on Saturday night after the offices went up in flames under unclear circumstances.
On Tuesday Mr. Nkedianye alleged that Mr. Kuria should be investigated over the arson attack.
According to the Governor affiliated to the ODM party, the MP had earlier said that Opposition will be no more in Kajiado.
“Moses Kuria came here and said that ODM would cease to exist in Kajiado,” What a coincidence that this arson takes place just a few days to the President’s visit to Kajiado," he said.
Mr. Nkedianye who was inspecting the damage sharply criticized those involved noting: "You don’t look for votes by burning people’s offices. They might have burnt the offices but they have not burnt people’s votes”.
The Kajiado boss was joined by Kajiado Central MP Elijah Memusi, Deputy Governor, Paul Ntiati, and ODM National Elections Board Chairperson Judith Pareno while addressing the press.
Mr. Memusi called on the National Cohesion and Integration Commission to probe the Gatundu South legislator.
According to Memusi Kuria insulted the Orange Party leader in his vernacular language, Kajiado is a cosmopolitan County.
"You cannot come here and hurl all manner of abuses in your mother tongue. We call on NCIC to investigate the arson and apprehend those behind it although we suspect they have a hand in it," Memusi remarked.
However, Kuria rubbished the allegations stating that the Opposition leaders burnt the offices themselves.
“I highly suspect that they burnt their offices to attract sympathy because they know the tide is against them. I said that Memusi has done nothing for the people of Kajiado Central.
All he does is follow Raila around the country. I also told them that Nkedianye has also done nothing for the people of Kajiado. That is what the people told me. I don’t live in Kajiado,” Kuria was quoted by a local daily.
