Jubilee Party to sanction Kuria for remarks

By DAVID KWALIMWA September 7th, 2017 1 min read

The Jubilee Party has threatened unspecified action against Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, for his inflammatory remarks.

In an interview on NTV’s political talk show Sidebar on Wednesday night, the ruling party’s Secretary General Raphael Tuju explained that Mr Kuria’s comments were “not part of Jubilee’s policy”.

“Moses Kuria is out of order and I will not accept this kind of language,” said Tuju.

“If it is from his official Facebook page, then I will take it up with him because it is unacceptable.”

“Simple, and it cannot be Jubilee policy. We cannot be put on the spot by mistakes of a few elements in the party who are preaching the wrong thing for this country.”


Should Mr Tuju keep his word, the party is likely to fine, suspend or even expel Kuria as per its constitution.

“Kiambu has spoken. They have said Wembe ni Ule Ule. Wangige and Kiambu people are seething with anger. 1 Million of their votes were cancelled by 4 people. But they are so ready to do it again. And even more” Kuria’s post read in part.

Nasa presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, amassed 69,157 votes in Kiambu County in the August 8 presidential election which has sinced be annuled by the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, Mr Kuria emerged as the most discussed personality by Kenyans on Twitter on Thursday.

By midday, his name had been mentioned atleast 17,000 times among the trends, well ahead of other topical issues such as #PetitionsKe, #JKLive, #Kigali and #ArtisticThursday.
