Controversial Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has reportedly called for Raila’s assassination since he is endangering the peace of the country.
He, in a one and half minutes video, expressed his desires to have the political leader Raila Odinga kicked out of the way to bring peace to the country and end IEBC protest.
Speaking on Sunday at the thanksgiving rally of a vernacular station radio presenter held at the Safaricom indoor stadium, Kasarani, Kuria urged the government to assassinate Raila.

Shortly after the video hit the internet, it got hundreds of views with vast number of Kenyans urging the government to throw him into jail.
According to him:
“Nyumba ni murathikiriria? Nindiraheiruo wira nimukuona ta nguhota? Matige guitigira, Muthama, na Orengo na nyina moke othe. Ni mui gitumi ni kii? No matume kimudu, giuke na mucinga, Raila rii rithathi ya mutwe akue mauge ni nii.No emenyerere, ona bebe no arie, tutigutorio thinaine ni mundu umue. Na arie bebe tumuthike jumatatu iria inge, maikie mahiga wiki imue na Kenya ithii na mbere . Okoruo ni haro me kwenda niyo me kuona. Muire raila ona bebe no arie na thii ihore na tuthii na no menda thayu moke tuarie tuikare wega IEBC yenda guthii ithii okoruo tii uguo mathii ma kiumaga “
Translated indiscreetly to:
“My people, I was picked to negotiate with these people. Do you think I will deliver? They shouldn’t fear in fact let Orengo, Muthama and their mothers come. They want to stage a gunman tasked to kill Raila and then blame it on me. But he should be careful because he can still bite the bullet. 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. If it’s war they want it’s what they’ll get. Tell Raila he can bite the bullet but if they want peace they should come and let us negotiate.”

Kuria is yet to be cleared on three charges including incitement to violence, hate speech and stimulating ethnic hatred. He is said to have pointed fingers at members of the Luo community as the culprits of Gikomba terrorist attack, that took the lives of 10 in 2015 .
On the other hand, police are looking into the statement Bahati MP Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri released over the weekend that members of the “Luo community should leave Nakuru”.
The MP spoke to a crowd after Cord leader Raila Odinga held a political rally in Nakuru on Saturday. Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet said on Sunday that the MP will be interrogated.
Another statement, which the authorities described as “hate speech” was caught in a film footage and audio clip that went viral on social media.
In the clip, the Mp was heard saying, “na sasa tunasema ni bahati yake sikuwa hapa…Tungeonana ( what we are saying is Raila was lucky I was not around).
“Walifanya demonstrations wakachoma nyumba ya mkikuyu na ya neighbours… kama ni namna hivyo hata wajaluo wahame hapa… wahame…wameharibu mali ya watu wetu.”
they did their demonstrations, burnt houses belonging to Kikuyus and neighbours.. if it is so, even Luo community should leave this area. let them leave.. they have destroyed our property”
The he further urged the agitating audience never to let Cord leader enter Nakuru.
“Ako wapi..ako wapi Raila Odinga…ametoa watu Kisumu analeta hapa kuharibu sisi.(Where is Raila, he has brought protesters from Kisumu to destroy us) we must defend our people..Tuende huko tu strike..,” he added.
Twitter users in Kenya responded to the weak platitude using #ArrestKimaniNgunjiri, to demand the arrest of the Mp.
A user named Cyprian Nyakundi said “Even after Tweeting @JBoinnet & Telling him Kinuthia Mbugua and Ngunjiri Were behind the Naks chaos, No arrest made”.
Another user identifed as Rein said “Before Hon. Ngunjiri made those remarks, he should travel around and find out how Kikuyus are all over. Not good 4 peace”
Njeri Gitau said. “I am a Kikuyu who also loves @RailaOdinga so let Kikuyus stop making him a Luo leader. He’s a leader to many”.
