Outrage as Moses Kuria calls for assassination of Raila Odinga

13 June 2016, 10:10

Nairobi - Kenyans have reacted angrily to Moses Kuria’s call for the assassination of CORD leader Raila Odinga.

Over the weekend, Kuria told the audience that the Raila should be killed because he is a threat to the national security.

Addressing the audience in his native Kikuyu language at Kasarani stadium, Kuria is quoted as saying: “We won’t be troubled by one person forever. He can as well bite the bullet and we bury him next Monday. His protesters will throw stones for just one week and life continues.”

CORD have called for action against the Gatundu South MP.

“If Moses Kuria's statements go unpunished, we will assume he is speaking for gov't leaders who protect him as he stokes ethnic tensions,” they said on twitter.

Kenyans on twitter have also responded to these remarks and called for Kuria’s arrest. Here are some of their views:

Patrick Kemboi: “Moses Kuria is becoming too economical with the use of his brains if he has any.”

Kevyne Odhiambo: “Moses Kuria does amuse me every time he speaks in his mother tongue, someone tame the mweheshimiwa utterances!!”

Denislov Lietev: “If Moses Kuria calls for the government to assassinate Raila doesn't that mean the government is in the Assassination business?? #JacobJuma.”

Matt Timothy Kinyoda: “Demonstrators won't destabilize this country; its hate mongers like Moses Kuria & Onesmus Kimani Wa Ngunjiri who will? #NoToHateSpeech.”

Catherine Odero: “You know you are doomed as a country if you have people like Moses Kuria in leadership ... #Thirdworldnonsense .”

Duncan Kokonya: “When u see a dog barking just look for its owner..@MarthaKarua Mama U were right. Now I know Moses Kuria is just Someone’s Mouthpiece.”

Edward Kisiang'ani: “Statements attributed to MP Moses Kuria make it extremely hard for Kenya to achieve national cohesion n ethnic harmony.. Tragedy!”
