Raila forgives Moses Kuria over ‘assassination’ remarks

June 17th, 2016 1 min read

Cord leader Raila Odinga on Friday said he has forgiven Gatundu MP Moses Kuria over his alleged calls for the “assassination” of the Opposition leader.

Mr Odinga said the MP was only entertaining his Jubilee supporters and that a person with an intent to kill does not announce in public.

“He was just entertaining the people. Lord forgive them for they do not know what they are doing,” said Mr Odinga in his speech during the requiem mass of post-independence Minister Ngala Mwendwa held at the AIC Church in Milimani.

Mr Odinga attended the mass together with Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

Moses Kuria is among eight lawmakers arrested on Tuesday over accusations of hate speech and incitement to violence.

The Gatundu South MP had over the weekend called for the ‘assassination’ of Mr Odinga  at a thanksgiving rally of a vernacular station radio presenter held at the Safaricom indoor stadium, Kasarani.
