In a social media statement, Maalim advised controversial Kuria to lead his Kikuyu people as an example by quitting drinking and embracing polygamy to further increase their population.

"By the way Moses Kuria if you want the Kikuyu population to increase manyfold get them to stop drinking and espouse polygamy. Lead by example on both fronts. As for Biometric census be my guest. Thank GOD Uhuru now knows the enemies of his legacy. Build nation no scapegoating!!!" Posted Maalim.

Just a few days ago, MP Kuria had sparked social media controversy when he faulted Nothern Kenya Governors and legislators who had convened a presser to air their sentiments on the incoming census exercise set to commence sometime this year.

Similarly, the Gatundu legislator had also been roasted online for being overly drunk with the Kiambu Women Rep Gathoni wa Muchomba calling on him to undergo rehabilitation.
