Nyeri - Nyeri town MP, Esther Murugi has asked Director of Public Prosecution, Keriako Tobiko to deal firmly with Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria over his recent hate remarks.
Murugi said the DPP should not be intimidated by political affiliations of those preaching hatred against other tribes or races.
“It does not matter where one comes from whether it is Nyanza or Gatundu. The law should always be allowed to take its course,” said Murugi.
Murugi was addressing media over the weekend at Muruguru Girls High school after presiding over the school’s prize giving day.

Kuria was recently caught on tape asking youth in his constituency to slash anyone opposing projects and activities of the National Youth Service (NYS).
He has since apologized but stated that he did not intend to hurt anyone.
“At that point, I was addressing the youth in my constituency. They were angry. I was angry. In no way did I mean to incite anyone,” said Kuria following public uproar.
