Nairobi - And the controversial Moses Kuria is in the Jubilee team for IEBC talks. How and why?
Kuria was named Thursday amongst an 11 member team for the talks that are set to thrash out a deal over the current impasse with the IEBC.
Known as one of the most vicious supporters of the Jubilee Coalition, the top two insisted on him being on the team to ensure that a level of passion is maintained in the team, as well as a hard and tough to break down negotiator that Kuria is.
" The President and Deputy both felt Kuria should be in the team for the sake of balance," a source that is close to the Jubilee hierarchy and was present at the State House meeting to choose the team told News24.
" Everyone knows what to get with Kuria. He will be the hardliner and ensure that there is no short thrift for the government," he added.
Kuria, who is not afraid to speak his mind as has been seen in the past, has already shared his views on the IEBC protests that have been taking place, saying that Police should use as much force as possible to deal with the protesters.
" The Police budget should be increased to get in more teargas and weaponry to deal with such protests. They must be dealt with forcefully," he stated.
The talks should be interesting.
