Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has once again been summoned to appear before the National Cohesion and Integration Commission over alleged hate remarks.

In a summon letter dated October 6, the controversial MP was asked to appear before NCIC on Monday, October 9 at 11 am.

This follows remarks Kuria made on September 25, asking the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet, to shoot dead Opposition leader Raila Odinga and National Super Alliance supporters who would break the law during anti-IEBC demonstrations.

Speaking during a campaign tour in Nakuru, Kuria sought to remind the police that their role is to protect the citizens, hence, should not allow the NASA team to continue causing chaos in their protests aimed at pushing for reforms at the IEBC.

“Mr Boinnet, the gun you have is not a pen. It has bullets and you should use it. The work of the police is to protect the citizens. If Raila Amollo Odinga will be the first to break the law tomorrow (September 26) then let him be shot dead,” Kuria was captured saying, in a video that went viral on social media.

Following the fresh summons, Kuria on Saturday morning took to Facebook where he stated: “So there is such a thing as inciting the police!”

Last month, on September 11, Moses Kuria was arrested along with former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama over alleged hate speech.

Kuria was accused of directing Kiambu residents to drive out opposition supporters who voted for NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga in the August 8 poll.

After spending the night at Pangani police cells, Kuria and Muthama were arraigned in court and released on a cash bail of Ksh 300,000 each.
