Controversy seems to follow Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria like a shadow. He is always in the limelight for all the wrong reasons. Even before he walked into parliament unopposed as MP for Gatundu south, Kuria had been making headlines left, right and center. Kuria is well known for making statements that could be termed offensive as well as discrimination along tribal lines and yesterday was not different.
Below are the seven dumbest statements Moses Kuria has ever made
1. He asked Gatundu South Youth To Chop Those Opposed To NYS With Pangas
Recently, while addressing the people from his constituency, Kuria asked the youth to chop those opposed to NYS with pangas a message that has elicited various reactions among Kenyans since the video went public.
2. He called Luos “uncircumcised men.”
Earlier this year, Kuria quoted Genesis 17:14 on his Facebook page that says: “Any uncircumcised male who is not cut in the flesh of his foreskin shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.” And this caused a stir on social media after his followers believed that he was referring to the Luo community. He said that foreskin misleads the mind.
3. He insulted the Odinga family by calling them, barren idiots.
During Fidel Odinga’s burial, many remarks were made by various people and some of them did not seem to please the Gatundu South MP. He tweeted referring to the Odinga family as “barren idiots.”
4. He accused some communities of terrorism and violence
On January 12th, the Gatundu South legislator went public trying to clear his image after having linked some communities to terrorism and violence. He committed to stopping the hate speech between politicians but as was to be expected, he is still same old-same old Kuria.
5. “Charge Raila with treason!”
This was after Migori people threw shoes at the president
