By publicly confessing and bragging that he directly participated in fixing Deputy President William Ruto to be prosecuted at the ICC (Hague), Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria is as guilty as a thug who raped your wife or daughter and storms your homestead to tell you and taunt you about it.
With his own mouth Mr. Kuria has toured Rift Valley and loudly and repeatedly told anxious, ICC weary Kalenjins: â€œYes I fixed your son William Ruto! Mta Do?â€
But in Kuriaâ€™s case, the guilt must be shared with his Kalenjin â€œpolitical tour guidesâ€ taking him around Kalenjin land to spread this demonic confession; namely: senators Onesmus Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet) and Charles Keter (Kericho). How dare they cheer on (celebrate) the bragging of one who raped your mother? Theirs is not even guilt: it is an automatic curse!
Which provocation is worse than what Moses Kuria is indulging in? It is instructive that this â€œrogue MPâ€ was present when Kalenjin MPs who have been misled by Murkomen and Keter to attend anti-ICC prayer rallies in Rift Valley declared that the ICC case bedeviling DP Ruto and Journalist Joshua Arap Sang is equal to the entire Kalenjin Community put on trial. It directly means that Moses Kuria procured false witnesses to cook up evidence to frame and FIX the entire Kalenjin Nation on behalf of his masters. Now they are using Moses Kuriaâ€™s confession as diversionary tactics on what is to happen soon.
The entire Kalenjin Nation is shocked! We do not understand why the DPP (Keriako Tobiko) and ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda are waiting for to arrest him and charge him in court accordingly. And if TNA was genuine in the partnership with the Kalenjin Nation, they should have expelled him from the party and kick him out of Parliament for this heinous crime. Polarizing the Country instead of healing and reconciliation is by itself lack of visionary leadership.
Many Kalenjinâ€™s would be expecting William Ruto to lead his URP troops to quit Jubilee â€œmara mojaâ€ for this terrible betrayal, following Moses Kuriaâ€™s outbursts. But we know that being consumed by preparations for his defense at the ICC (Hague) he is relying on advice from Murkomen and Charles Keter who have been compromised and are misleading him to stay in Jubilee. The same two senators are responsible for misleading Kalenjin MPs to keep quiet in the face of very serious provocation and extreme political abuse! The Kalenjin Nation are at cross road all its elected leaders are minding there stomachs.
With DP Ruto bogged down by preparations for his ICC defense, his appointed prefects in Kalenjin politics: Murkomen and Charles Keter appear blinded by loads of cash from Moses Kuria and his masters to herd Kalenjin MPs into silence and inertia. This is causing unease and anger at the grassroots, hence the widespread grumbling across Rift valley. The people are now like sheep without a shepherd. They are crying out for leadership at this time of trouble and provocation.
