Kuria threatens to initiate private arrest of Kidero, Khalwale

20 July 2015, 14:01 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria has vowed to launch private arrest of Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale and Nairobi Governor, Evans Kidero if the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) fails to arrest them over last week’s chaos at Milimani Law Courts.

Kuria has asked the NCIC chairman, Francis ole Kaparo to direct relevant security agencies to prosecute the two leaders without delay on grounds that they propagated ethnic clashes and incitement.

He said Khalwale at some time defied NCIC’s summon over hate speech but no action was taken against him by Kaparo and challenged the commission not to hesitate in punishing Khalwale and Kidero this time round.

“I will be carrying out private prosecution against the two in order to safeguard our country, our future and that of our children,” said Kuria.

The Gatundu South legislator added that the two leaders do not deserve to be in leadership positions for mobilizing youths along their ethnic lines to confront each other during the hearing of a case Kidero had filed against Khalwale.

Confronations between Khalwale and Kidero’s supporters on Thursday and Friday forced police to lobby teargas and shoot in the air to disperse the rowdy youths.

Kidero in the case claimed that Khalwale was publicly tarnishing his name by saying he was corrupt and responsible for the collapse of Mumias Sugar factory when he was its Managing Director.

Justice Joseph Sergon in his ruling ordered Khalwale to desist from linking Kidero to the collapse of Mumias.

Kuria, who is facing prosecution over incitement remarks he uttered against those opposed to the National Youth Service projects, claimed that NCIC was selective in punishing leaders implicated in propagating incitement and singled out Khalwale.
