That Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria is a politician who can spit venom is undisputable. During the 2017 presidential campaigns, Kuria found himself on the wrong side of the law due to his loose tongue.
Journalists have also not been spared by the legislator’s fire-spitting tongue.
The first reporter to face Kuria’s wrath was NTV’s Kennedy Muriithi when the MP used the F* word during a live interview.
Muriithi was left apologizing to the viewers over the gaffe.
On Tuesday, January 8, 2019, a fire-breathing Kuria shocked many after he released a vernacular slur that left Inooro FM’s presenter Kamau wa Kang’ethe dumb during a live morning interview.
Kuria had been pushed to the corner by the presenter over his recent remarks but hell broke loose when the presenter said that Kiambu leaders Ferdinand Waititu and Gathoni wa Muchomba were concerned that he was a drunk.
An agitated Kuria shot back with a vitriol that is not spoken in the open among the Kikuyu people.
“They call me a drunk, do I drink with anyone’s mother?” Kuria posed.
The slur is one of the worst missiles anyone can throw to a member of the Gikuyu community.
Kamau, popularly known as Governor by his fans, was so shocked that he remained mum for seconds before he summoned his thoughts and called for a commercial break.
The case was the same on Thursday as the MP held a press conference to put the facts straight over his recent political pronouncements against President Uhuru Kenyatta.
After the press briefing, a reporter from one of the Kikuyu stations asked him whether he would mind giving a presser in vernacular.
“Tell your station to hire Kikuyu translators,” Kuria shot back to the embarrassment of the reporter.
