10 July 2015, 11:33
Nairobi - The National Alliance (TNA) party chairman, Johnson Sakaja has said the party will take serious action against Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria over his hateful remarks.
Sakaja said the MP's remarks were personal and did not reflect the views of TNA, President Uhuru Kenyatta or the Jubilee government.
“We will not sacrifice the unity of Kenyans for political gains. President Kenyatta wants to unite all Kenyans and we won’t allow any member of TNA to do the opposite,” Sakaja said.
He revealed that Kuria will appear before an independent committee formed by the party to defend himself against the remarks on Monday next week.

Meanwhile, political analyst Prof. Edward Kisiangani has called for Kuria's resignation for breaking the Leadership and Integrity Act in the Kenyan Constitution.
“Political morality in this country is as stake, if at all such people who spit venom occupy leadership posts.
“The constitution is very clear; Kuria has failed to respect and abide by the constitution. He should therefore resign,” Kisiangani said.
