Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria

Two vocal political leaders Moses Kuria and former senator Johnson Muthama has been arrested for interrogation over hate remarks.

Muthama who was arrested around Kangundo area is being held at the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI)  headquarters on Kiambu Road.

The two have been on the National Cohesion and Integration Commission list of hate speech mongers.

In a Facebook post on September 5, Kuria said they were ready for another election but that they will hunt people who did not elect Uhuru Kenyatta.

“Kiambu has spoken. They have said Wembe ni ule ule (the razor blade is the same one). Wangige and Kiambu people are seething with anger. One million of their votes were cancelled by four people,” read the post.

“But they are so ready to do it again. And even more. Manhunt is on tonight for the 200,000 people who did not vote and the 70,000 that voted for that other demon.”

Raphael Tuju, who is Jubilee Party secretary general, said the remarks were unacceptable.
