NASA supporters hurl stones at Moses Kuria during rally

The crowd kept shouting Wiper and NASA slogans when they were addressed.

Former Cabinet minister Amos Kimunya, former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile and Gatundu South MP Moses address Jubilee Party supporters at Makadara Shopping centre in Athi River during campaigns on June 12, 2017.

The Jubilee leaders had a hard time convincing the locals why they should re-elect president Uhuru Kenyatta.

The angry crowd later hurled stones at Kuria who was accompanied by nominated MP Isaac Mwaura, former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile, former Cabinet minister Amos Kimunya and Nairobi politician Millicent Omanga as they tried to address the hostile crowd.

The crowd kept shouting and chanting Wiper and NASA slogans whenever the leaders called out 'Jubilee'.

According to The Star, an angry Kuria told off the locals for responding to his greetings by shouting NASA.

“Ati ninasema 'museo' na mnajibu NASA. Shindwe wewe...kwenda wewe...Ile pesa mnalipwa ni kidogo kwa hiyo kazi. Wewe unalala njaa...unalipwa shilling kumi na tano upige kelele na bado utalala njaa. Kwenda wewe," he said.

This loosely translates to: "How can you say NASA after I greet you I rebuke you...go away...The money you were given is too little for that job. You go to bed hungry...you are given Sh15 to make noise and still go to bed hungry...go away."

The Jubilee leaders maintained that they had the constitutional right to campaign for President Uhuru Kenyatta across all 47 counties in the country regardless of whether it was an opposition stronghold or not.

“There is no Gor Mahia match here. IEBC gave me permission to come and campaign here today. Let us respect one another,” Ndile was heard shouting back at the hostile crowd.
