Moses Kuria now threatens to place Raila under house arrest
Controversial Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has threatened to have Nasa leader Raila Odinga placed under house arrest next month if he tries to interfere with the fresh presidential election.
Mr Kuria made the threat on his Facebook account on Sunday.
“If Raila tries to stop us from voting on 17th October, we will place him under house arrest just the way we did to Jaramogi (Odinga,” he posted.
Raila’s father Jaramogi was placed under house arrest after the failed 1982 coup attempt on retired President Daniel arap Moi’s administration.
Mr Odinga’s Nasa coalition has declared that there will be no presidential election on October 17 as scheduled by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
He has given the IEBC “irreducible minimum” changes that he says must be effected before the opposition can take part in the repeat election as ordered by the Supreme Court.
Embakasi East MP Babu Owino dared the fiery MP –and his bosses- to actualize the threat.
“Moses Kuria I dare you & your bosses to place Rt Hon Raila Odinga under house arrest if you are real men,” he posted on his Facebook account.
The threats also drew mixed reactions from Mr Kuria’s followers. Below are a few:
