I am still being pursued for threatening to circumcise Raila & Ida Odinga - Moses Kuria wants handshake to save him

He is out on a Sh1 million bond

Handshake should save me from case where I am accused of threatening to circumcise Ida Odinga - Moses Kuria

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has complained that he is still battling hate speech cases that started during the tense political campaigns preceding the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Kuria said the handshake was only favoring one political side, making reference to Odinga’s raised political profile.

He further stated that he was still being pursued in two court cases where he made controversial statement while allegedly defending President Kenyatta.

I still have two cases coming up this week. One is the NYS case where I defended the program when Raila was trying to sabotage it. The other one am accused of trying to cut something from Ida Odinga. Why ca’t the handshake be used to drop my cases?"

This whole week, I will not be working for the people of Gatundu South, I will be in court rooms defending myself from useless cases and some of this people are we were fighting are benefiting. I support the handshake but we should not allow it to be neutered by politics,” the outspoken MP said on Sunday.

NYS Projects

He was making reference to two cases where he was charged in 2015 and 2017 respectively.

In the 2015 case, he is accused of allegedly inciting youth in Gatundu to attack and “slash” politicians opposed to National Youth Service projects in the county.

In September 2017, Kuria was charged after allegedly threatening to circumcise Odinga and his wife Ida.

He spent a few days at Pangani Police Station before being released Sh300,000 cash bail and a bond of Sh1 million as a surety that he will conduct himself in good behaviour during the period of trial.
