Kuria fails in bid to gag media

20 July 2015, 17:09 William Korir

Nairobi - Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has failed in his bid to stop the media from covering the case in which he is accused of hate speech.

The Nairobi magistrates court has dismissed the Gatundu South MP Moses application Monday, having asked last week that the court bar the media from covering his incitement to violence case.

" The media has the constitutional right to cover any court proceedings," principal magistrate Joyce Gandani said in her ruling on Monday.

The judge stated that the MP had not produced sufficient evidence to warrant his request.

Kuria filed the application to lock out the media Thursday saying he was being "tried and convicted by the press".

The controversial MP appeared in court for the determination of a KES 2 million bail for a previous incitement case, after a controversial video surfaced, provoking further claims against him.

In the video, Kuria is seen telling machete wielding youth to defend the National Youth Service and its projects, saying that they chop down anyone against it.

He has since said that he was misinterpreted and that the media have an agenda against him.

" The media have become a persecution body and decided anything Kuria says is bad and must be looked into," he said of the alleged bias.
