Moses Kuria forced to organize Harambee over Sh6.5 Million Debt

Is Moses Kuria broke?

Mr. Kuria who was found guilty of defaming Karua stated that he would start a countrywide fundraising in order to settle the dispute.

In a Facebook post, the Gatundu South legislator urged his supporters to help him raise the amount noting: "Today I was instructed by the court to pay child support amounting to Ksh 6.5 Million. I will be holding a series of Harambees across the country so that you, my supporters can help me".

He mentioned that he will start his fundraising at Kerugonya Stadium.

"The first Harambee will be held at Kerugoya stadium in the next few weeks. The date will be announced here soon,” he stated.

Karua took Kuria to court for linking her to the procurement of witnesses, who were allegedly used to fix Deputy President William Ruto in the crime against humanity cases at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The former Kirinyaga Gubernatorial aspirant claimed that the legislator’s utterances were malicious, unwarranted and defamatory.

Karua argued that her image and reputation, as well as her standing as a politician, businesswoman, family woman and an advocate, was damaged following Kuria’s remarks.

“Unless the defendant is compelled by this honorable court to cease maligning my name and further injuring my reputation, I stand to suffer irreparable harm from his reckless and unwarranted attack on my integrity on grounds which he cannot substantiate," Karua remarked.

The renowned politician insisted that she has never met Kuria to discuss the procurement of fake witnesses for the ICC prosecutor.

In September 2015 while speaking in Kapsokwony, Bungoma County, the Gatundu MP divulged that he met Karua and other leaders at Club Galileo in Westlands where the plan was hatched.

“In addition, he stated that I met him and others at Club Galileo in Westlands where we devised a scheme to recruit witnesses against the Deputy President for the case against him,” Karua told the court.
