How 4 days in cell helped Kuria mend fences with Raila

19 June 2016, 08:07

Nairobi - Gatundu south MP Moses Kuria has revealed that he kept in touch with the opposition leader, Raila Odinga during the four days he spent at the cold cells of Pangani police station.

Kuria, who shared a tiny cell with five other legislators, had ample time to make up with his rivals in opposition.

According to Standard, the six MPs who were detained at Pangani communicated with Raila Odinga and their family members every day using a smuggled ‘Mulika Mwizi’ phone.

It was during one of those hearty cell chats that Kuria agreed to meet Raila for lunch once released.

Eight legislators -three from Jubilee and five from CORD - were arrested on Tuesday over hate speech charges. 

Kuria was arrested for calling for Raila's assassination, which prompted four CORD leaders to respond in a manner that landed them in jail. Raila has already forgiven Kuria.

Bahati MP, Kimani Ngunjiri who was arrested for disrupting Raila's rally in Nakuru last Saturday, also pledged to attend his rallies as a show of unity.

Five male legislators were held at Pangani while their two female colleagues were held at Muthiga police station until Friday when all the eight MPs were released on bond.
