Moses Kuria vows to lead anti-Cord protests in city centre

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has threatened to lead parallel demonstrations on Monday should the weekly protests by Cord to pressurize IEBC officials to vacate office resume.

He said that he will stage the counter protests ‘in the spirit of community policing’.

“If I get arrested, my people shall be enjoying the roads, electricity and water projects that we have brought to them unlike other people who are always in the streets yet they do nothing for their people,” he said on Thursday.

He made the remarks while launching water projects at Rwabura dam site in his constituency.

Mr Kuria added that he has a court order barring the Opposition from holding the protests.

“If Cord does not respect the court order I obtained the same way we respected the court’s decision to allow them hold a meeting at Uhuru park on Madaraka day, I will gather my people and proceed with counter protests on Monday,” he said.

Mr Kuria said that protests are the only way to counter Cord’s threats.

The legislator echoed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s call to conduct electoral reforms within the confines of the law.

“If the opposition wants reforms, they should follow the law. We shall have it no other way,” he said.
