Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has condemned violence meted out on Jubilee leaders in Kibra during the mini poll on Thursday.
Kuria on Saturday said although he didn't support Jubilee candidate McDonald Mariga, it was not good that leaders like Boni Khalwale and Didimus Barasa were harassed by goons linked to ODM.
"I am still in shock that Kenyans are making fun of the violence meted upon Boni Khalwale and Didimus Barasa in Kibra. It is public knowledge that I was not supporting McDonald Mariga but we should give everyone a chance to campaign freely anywhere," said Kuria.
Kuria stated that the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga was supposed to solve electoral violence.
He questioned why Interior CS Fred Matiang' failed to address the attack on the two leaders wondering whether every leader is now free to use goons instead of the police.
He went ahead to state that the violence was witnessed in the handshake 'bedroom' which tells more about the Building Bridges Initiative.
"The handshake was meant to resolve issues such as electoral violence. Simba Arati ordering goons to beat Didimus Barasa in front of cameras is despicable. Since Fred Matiangi and the security system have said nothing about this, I presume it's fair game and we should all depend on goons, not on the police", he noted.
"That this happened in the handshake bedroom speaks volumes about the Building Battalions Initiative. Let's all build our own goons battalions ahead of 2022," he added.
