Moses Kuria in trouble again over Raila “Shooting” remarks

Kuria has been summoned to appear before the...

This comes after Kuria asked the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet, to shoot dead Opposition leader Raila Odinga and National Super Alliance supporters who would break the law during anti-IEBC demonstrations.

In a summon letter dated October 6, the controversial MP was asked to appear before NCIC on Monday, October 9 at 11 am.

Kuria made the remarks on September 25, during a rally in Nakuru County, where he sought to remind the police that their role is to protect the citizens, hence, should not allow the NASA team to continue causing chaos in their protests aimed at pushing for reforms at the IEBC.

“Mr Boinnet, the gun you have is not a pen. It has bullets and you should use it. The work of the police is to protect the citizens. If Raila Amollo Odinga will be the first to break the law tomorrow (September 26) then let him be shot dead,” Kuria was captured saying, in a video that went viral on social media.

Following the fresh summons, Kuria on Saturday morning took to Facebook where he stated: “So there is such a thing as inciting the police!”

Last month, on September 11, Moses Kuria was arrested along with former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama over alleged hate speech.

Kuria was accused of directing Kiambu residents to drive out opposition supporters who voted for NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga in the August 8 poll.
