Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has taken to social media in a mad rant after police pounced on the wife of his close assocoiate and Juja parliamentary seat aspirant, George Koimburi.
It was not immediately clear why the suspect was taken in with Kuria disclosing that she will arraigned in court tomorrow, 13 April 2021.
“The cowards have arrested the wife to Hon George Koimburi, PEP Candidate for Juja. She will be arraigned in a Thika court tomorrow. But verily, verily I say unto you. Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come. Tukutane Thika asubuhi” Kutria wrote.
The MP has turned into a fierce critic of President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Jubilee administration.
He has used the several by-elections that have been held across the country to flex his political muscles, emerging victorious in some and losing narrowly in others.
The Juja one in particular is a special one as Kuria hopes to have the first MP in parliament elected on a People’s Empowerment Party ticket.
He recently appealed to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission not to postpone the by-elections scheduled for 18 May 2021.
According to Kuria, powerful individuals are keen on coercing the IEBC to cancel the elections with Jubilee bearing the brunt of his wrath.
“Surely I know things are elephant for Jubilee in Juja but please do not punish the people of Bonchari – Kisii County and Rurii, Nyandarua County. IEBC is held up in a meeting discussing how to postpone the 3 by-elections slated for May 18th. Dear Wafula Chebukati. Resist this. It will set a bad precedent 15 months before the General Elections” Kuria wrote a few days ago.
