'If Kuria was not an MP, he would not be in court'

03 August 2015, 18:31 William Korir

Nairobi - Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has argued that if he was not an MP, then his hate speech accusations would not hold and accused the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP of being pushed by political forces to have him jailed.

Speaking in court Monday, his lawyer Danson Mungatana argued that Kuria was the victim of a witchunt by the DPP to have his bail removed so as to have him jailed.

Mungatana was speaking in the case in which the DPP wants Kuria's bail, handed to him last year revoked for a repeat offence.

The DPP says that Kuria is a serial hate speech offender and that his bail, secured last year for a similar offence be removed.

Mungatana however says that there is a political motivation to the case.

" If Kuria was a normal Kenyan, lets say a boda boda rider, this case would not even be fathomed," Mungatana argued Monday.

" There is a plot by the DPP to undermine my client and embarrass him by trying to get rid of the bail handed to him over a matter that can be dealt with cordially," he added.

Kuria is accused of hate speech after purporting to tell youths in his constituency to take up arms against opposition leaders having at go at the National Youth Service NYS.

He has since apologized for his comments, claiming that he was misinterpreted.

The determination of his bail application will be made Wednesday.
