NAIROBI, Kenya, May 26- The National Alliance political strategist Moses Kuria has dismissed the complaint filed by the Law Society of Kenya against comments he made on Facebook.
Kuria who was summoned by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission to clarify the posting, says he was not being malicious or tribal but was fighting terrorism.
“I want to state here categorically that if you are a terrorist you need to be very scared of Moses Kuria. When it comes to terrorism I have no regrets, zero regrets. I’m going to stand firm against terrorism and when I say ‘we’ I mean Kenyans.” He explained.
“When it comes to issues of cohesion I am one person who has been on the front line on promoting this commission. There is nothing wrong on that posting, if acts of terror continue in this country we have no control on what Kenyans will do, because Kenyans are angry about these matters. I was purely analysing and purely predicting. Actually I have got a battle with terrorist… I do not care which tribe they belong to.”
The Commission’s Assistant Director, Complaints, Legal and Enforcement Department, Kyalo Mwengi says the commission will open investigations on the allegations and forward recommendations to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
“The commission had summoned Moses Kuria to appear before it touching on the posting done on one of the social media pages that we found were likely to interfere with national cohesion. But more specific he was invited to shade light in regard to the posting. The investigations are on starting today; this is the first engagement,” he said.
This comes after the DPP Keriako Tobiko requested the Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to open up the investigation against Kuria following a complaint filed by the Law Society of Kenya.
