Gatundu Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a journalist.
Kuria was arrested in Westlands earlier today, on allegations that he — on December 8, 2019 — physically assaulted media commentator Joyce Wanja, popularly known as Wagichungumwa.
It is alleged that the legislator beat up Wanja after she faulted him for making remarks that were deemed to be “too vulgar” to be said in front of children.
The legislator is yet to be presented to court where hearing for bond would probably be applied.
Moses Kuria who was once a staunch supporter of Jubilee(still is) fell out with the government over his allegiance to DP Ruto as opposed to President Uhuru who is his constituent.
Kuria’s further flirtation with state machinery escalated this week when he accused the government and Raila Odinga of frustrating efforts by Miguna Miguna to jet back into the country, even going against several standing court orders.
While the police might have arrested him for assault, it would not be too farfetched to imagine that his dalliance with Ruto and his recent press statement in favor of Miguna Miguna are behind his troubles with the men in uniform.
