NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 9 -The National Alliance Party has referred beleaguered Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria to the National Disciplinary Committee.
In a letter sent to newsrooms, party Chairman Johnson Sakaja says the recent utterances by the lawmaker manifested acts of indiscipline and portrayed the party in bad light.
“The National Chairman of TNA acting pursuant to Article 32 of the party constitution has today referred the case of Hon. Moses Kuria to the National Disciplinary Committee,” reads part of the letter.
The party is expected to serve Kuria with details of the charges and officially summon him to defend himself.
Kuria who Thursday recorded a statement with the Criminal Investigation Department said his conscience was clear and he was confident he would be vindicated.
“I have recorded my statement and I believe the truth shall set me free. I believe justice shall be done… we need to leave this matter to the competent authorities to investigate and recommend appropriate action,” added Kuria.
He dismissed the move by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission proposing the lifting of his bail terms saying the commission was biased.
Kuria challenged the commissions’ Chairperson Francis ole Kaparo’s ability to prosecute hate speech cases saying others who had been summoned on similar grounds had disdain for the commission.
“Kenyans know some like Boni Khalwale have been summoned, every time he (Kaparo) summons me I go like a little boy, people like (Senator Johnson) Muthama have been summoned and they have shown nothing but contempt for that commission. Kaparo should know that he is heading a legal commission,” he posed.
The latest developments come even the controversial first time MP claims his statements were misconstrued as he was speaking out of anger following the destruction of facilities built by the National Youth Service in Kibera.
Kuria is expected to host a rally at the Gatundu stadium Friday to clarify his utterances before the group of youths he is alleged to have incited.
Meanwhile Kenyans on social media continue to ‘crucify’ him while calling for his arrest.
