Nairobi - Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria walked out of a TV interview on Tuesday night after he was put to task to explain what he exactly meant when he told his constituents to slash those opposed to National Youth Projects with pangas.
Kuria walked out of studio during the live interview on Citizen TV’s The Big Question show, saying a lot of editing was done on the video and what he said.
“The video surfaced 13 days after the meeting in my constituency. It means some mischievous editing was done by media houses to frame me,” Kuria said.
He revealed that he had already lodged a complaint with the Media Council of Kenya over the matter and challenged any media house to broadcast the raw footage of his 45 minutes speech during the event.

“The alleged video was taken by someone from the opposition and it was selectively edited to have me framed,” Kuria said.
Kuria was order to appear in court Wednesday over the remarks, with the National Cohesion and Integration Commission calling for his imprisonment.
The National Alliance party, which sponsored him to Parliament, said serious action will be taken against the legislator over the inflammatory remarks.
