Moses Kuria, the troublemaker gotten into more trouble…

Now, there is change of things and it changes swiftly, the former masters of all fate and the ones in closest circles of power. Suddenly fall astray and looses their feet. Moses Kuria MP is a man whose been able to run away from asking for the assassination of Raila Odinga and also manhunt for all opposition voters in Kiambu after the 8th August 2017.

This weekend, Kuria has been behind bars, even as the Court Orders was saying he was supposed to be free. Even then he had to pay bail and was free this evening on Saturday 11th January 2020. After wanting to go on hunger-strike and everything behind bars. However, have a hard time feeling sorry for him. Especially, if the allegations of assault against a woman is true. Because, men with power and ability can easily misuse it.

He has already gotten away with hate-speech several of times with only small scratches. He has not answered for his hateful words, his direct attacks on the opposition and Odinga. Moses knows this and he has gotten off the hook, again and again.

This time might be different. Since his not as vital or important anymore. His not that useful and his starting to attack his own government. Moses is one of DP Ruto’s men and that allegiance clearly doesn’t pay-off. As his seemingly alone in this. He got tear-gassed with other MPs and wasn’t freed still. His suffering now, is what the NASA MPs and other had to pay in 2016 and 2017. When he wished them all ill, as he was the upper-echelon guy.

If Kuria thought the adventure and the fairytale would last forever. He was wrong, as politics is a fickle thing. Moses should know this, as Kalonzo and Odinga has been able to get power and appointments, even as they not in government. But are semi-there now.

Kuria should know the handshake changed the political landscape and the BBI has given game to ODM. Now, Kuria as the one hand of the Jubilee, have to walk differently.

What is really rich about his situation this weekend. Is that he went from this on Thursday: “On 9th January, 2020 the Chamber President Mr. Ngatia hosted Hon. Moses Kuria in his office where they discussed the importance of Foreign Direct Investment in improving emerging market opportunities” (KNCCI – ‘COURTESY VISIT BY HON. MOSES KURIA TO THE CHAMBER PRESIDENT’ 09.01.2020).

On the 10th January 2020 the DCI reported this: “Gatundu South MP Hon. Moses Kuria was today morning arrested by DCI Kenya Detectives based at DCI Kilimani following an Assault report lodged against him on 10th December, 2019. He is currently being held in lawful custody as further investigations ensue” (DCI Kenya, 10.01.2020).

There after he was tear-gassed and also held until Saturday 11th January on bail. While he has to show up in Court on the 13th January 2020 to answer the allegations and the charges made against him. Kuria is off the hook on Sunday, but will be back to answer the law on Monday.

Moses surely is not untouchable, the state doesn’t even honour Court Orders in his favour to release him. That happened a day later. Therefore, he know now what it means to have lost power and influence, which he used to have. Kuria is not as great as he wants to be. His an MP and been part of Jubilee, but now that doesn’t matter. He cannot speak without costs and therefore, the law finds him.

He got away before, but not anymore. The reality hits and he still has to answer for the charges and allegations. If they are true, its really bad, if it is fake; its badly made by the ones who alleged them and got him charged.

Moses Kuria is allowed to address Odinga in political manner, his allowed to disown the BBI, but his not allowed to assault anyone. If that charge is made because what I mentioned. Its wrong from the get-go. Kuria MP have spoken ill before, hate-speech and in a manner nobody deserve. Wanted people hunted, assassinated and so-on.

He has put the fate of Odinga on God. Now, he might have start to pray to the same God for salvation and redemption. As he know is in-line of fire. He has the right to speak, but not all sort of vomit. That is something he should know as an Representative. Kuria MP has to act reasonable now.

His not a saint, but doesn’t deserve ill treatment either. But as a lawmaker, he should answer accordingly towards the laws his able to change as MP. Nevertheless, the MP should not breach it himself and think he could get away with. That is why his on thin ice now and with lack of support by many. This because of how his acted in the past and I don’t blame them. It is sort of the chickens coming home to roost.

Moses, you better change yourself. Call the DP and beg forgiveness, maybe beg for mercy even. If the DP will save his soldier. If not, he might have to fall. Who knows, but the MP isn’t a martyr. His just one man, whose time to fall is now. If not, this is a final warning. Maybe he wasn’t prepared for that, but his time has apparently come. Peace.

Even in the final stages of Pre-Election period the Calvary oppress the Opposition; Has sit-down between FDC, UPF and EC on “Difiance Campaign”; NRM struggling to ferry people from one location; and more!

Uganda Campaign Poster 2016 Funny

We live in interesting times as the Pre-Election period is getting to the final face. There been movement, as the parties acts move swiftly towards the final end. This here is about how the state-organizations goes against the opposition as they have done since like forever, as they are working partisan for NRM

Some things here will be more interesting than others. Take a look!

FDC EC UPF February 2016

The Electoral Commission met with FDC and UPF:

On Saturday on the 6. February 2016: The Electoral Commission, Uganda Police Force and officials from Forum for Democratic Change held a meeting related to the conduct of peaceful campaigns and polling. The Electoral Commission explained the systems put in place to achieve a credible 2016 General Election. The FDC officials committed to comply with electoral guidelines. The UPF assured on the security of the electoral process. The Commission encouraged to regular interactions to address any emerging stakeholder concern” (the Electoral Commission, 06.02.2016).

08.02.2016 NRM Kayunga

In Kayunga NRM struggled to ferry people to the Mzee’s rally:

On February 8, 2016, for Museveni’s campaign in Kayunga, the residents refused to get onto the trucks and buses which had each been allegedly paid sh. 200,000 to ferry people to his rally. Kayunga has very strong opposition but last week it was besieged by the regime which saw posters of opposition members Dr. Besigye and Mbabazi defaced, their supporters beat up or arrested. We are told that Museveni subsequently cancelled his main rally in Kayunga Town Council and proceeded to Kayonza, Busana and Kitimbwa. This might be the reason why residents refused to take the Yellow Bus” (Martha Leah Nangalama, 2016).

In Kayunga district the Police did this:

Police commanded by both the RDC and DPC of Kayunga district are moving with over 20 policemen in Kayunga town defacing all Mbabazi posters and beating up youth who tried to question them. This happened from 2.00 AM and security is still patrolling Bukolooto trading centre and Kayunga town council which is the backbone of Hon. Amama Mbabazi and Uganda Poor Youth concentration”.

Go-Forward have more issues in Kayunga District:

Kalinda Iddi, a youth who is the coordinator of the Go-Forward Task-Force in Kayunga district and chairman of the Uganda Poor Youth movement in Kayunga has disappeared. Police and men with guns in civilian clothes invaded his home in the night and arrested him but he is not at Kayunga police station and police has denied arresting him. The regime is now arresting people brutally and killing them extra judicially. Let us pray for Kalinda Iddi!

DP MP Candidate for Ntenjeru South in Kayunga District on the 7th February 2016:

Mr. Anthony Waddimba was kidnapped on Saturday night, stripped naked and taken to unknown place because his clothes were found in the nearby trading Centre. However, an unknown contact informed Waddimba’s father on a telephone that his son was dumped into River Nile. The hunt for him is on. We call up on the public to join the search for our Young Democrat, as they also mind about their security.

The Tororo Second Parliamentary Public Debate:

“On Sunday conducted at Hotel Meritoria Tororo. Among the candidates who managed to appear on the day include Hon. Kibang Moses (FDC), Cyrus Wanyama (Independent), Opata Peter (Go forward), Hon. Ochwo Godfrey Etiang (Go forward), Odaka Asuman (Go forward), Omaido Robert Etatai and Dr. Jagire Onyango. During the debate, Hon. Odaka Asuman Marjan of Go Forward contesting for Tororo Municipality Parliamentary seat pointed out restoration of Tororo municipality as force which pushed him to contest. He argues that in history, Tororo was one of the most developed towns not only in Uganda but all of Africa. Hon. Godfrey Ochwo an aspirant of Tororo North County on Go Forward stressed the need of building Community management structure. He says by so doing, the community will be able to monitor government projects. He pointed out the case where drugs for Hepatitis B in Molo Health centre III were stolen and found in one of private clinics. Mr. Ochwo says if the community had been sensitized on how to monitor government projects, such act of drugs being stolen will not have been happened. This is the second time NRM candidates are shunning such debates having missed in the first debate held on 31st January. The debate was organized by Uganda Radio Network in partnership with TWAWEZA” (100.2 EAST FM “Midundo Zaida”, 07.02.2016).

Disfranchised office of a UFA candidate in Ntungamo:

“Intruders broke into the office of Uganda Federal Alliance candidate in Ntungamo Municipality and took away her campaign materials and several other items, including Shs10m. Mr Prossy Nahwera Alleluyah, whose office was broken into, is contesting for the female district councillor’s seat to represent Ntungamo Municipality in the district council. She said all the posters she recently printed, appointment letters for her campaign agents, three computers, TV sets and a public address system for the campaigns were stolen” (EA Biz Info, 08.02.2016).

Issa-Otto

Fall out from Go-Forward Today:

“Issa Otto Falls Out With Mbabazi:  Ishaa Otto Amiza, a member of Amama Mbabazi’s national campaign task force is bitter with the ex-prime minister for failing to extend financial support to them and the joint candidates. According to Otto, following the failure by The Democratic Alliance-TDA summit to select a joint presidential candidate, Democratic Party, Uganda People’s Congress, Federal Alliance and Justice Forum joined hands with Mbabazi to form TDA (U) Go-Forward Alliance. He says the parties signed a new protocol to guide their relationship, adding that they also discussed funding for the joint candidates. Otto, however says to date, Mbabazi has not given them any funds yet the joint candidates are campaigning for him. Peter Mayeku, the National Chairperson of the Uganda Federal Alliance-UFA who also sits on TDA (U) Go-Forward summit says Mbabazi will support the joint candidates” (94.3 QFM Lira, 2016).

Justine Kasule Lumumba

NRM Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba went to facilitate Mzee’s participation in the 2nd Presidential Candidates today:

“Secretary General Of NRM arrives at Inter-Religious Council of Uganda headquarters P10 Satellite remote sensing and telemetry systems tracking the presidential campaign agents meeting. She arrived in a 500 million /= cruise, escorts paid 5 million per day all together, with daily expense of 60 million a months. Hon.Mbabazi and Besigye weren’t called in the setup but the rest of independents are being Oiled” (Gen. Sejusa, 08.02.2016).

I think this here was interesting. I think the stories and tales speaks for themselves as we have seen this so many times before. As we see the Police as the actors of NRM who act upon the public and opposition as they are pawns for the NRM-Police to play around with. So the NRM continues their arrogant approach as they even had no candidate in the Tororo Debate, as they followed Mzee and skipped the shindig as they couldn’t be gracious to grace the event, and tell the locals about their local policies; and also be questioned by the public and opposition towards their level of progress as there are the ruling party in the land. Peace.
