Kenyans Uproar Over Moses Kuria Hate Speech

(Last Updated On: July 10, 2015)

Moses Kuria is in trouble once again after allegedly issuing inflammatory remarks in his Gatundu South backyard over the National Youth Service saga. The controversial MP is once again making headlines for all the wrong reasons since he was elected unopposed as Gatundu South MP. The legislator is alleged to have urged his supports to take pangas and slash anyone who is opposed to the NYS project.

This is not the first time Kuria is in trouble over hate speech allegations and now the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko wants the court to cancel the bail terms issued in the previous case alleging that Kuria is a serial offender.

Kuria is however pleading for his innocence saying he is not at fault and blames the media for misquoting him. The Member of Parliament says he does not regret his remarks but says they were not meant to create any tension or hatred.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission wants legal action to be taken against the legislator and warns other politicians to be responsible and stop issuing inflammatory remarks for the sake of cohesion in the country.
