Kuria was roughed by an irate crowd when he arrived for the meeting and was nearly evicted from the gathering.

It took the intervention of ODM leader Raila Odinga and former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka to save him from the humiliation.

However, while condemning the incident, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi blamed Ngilu for inciting the crowd against Kuria, leading to his humiliation.

"It is very shameful and absurd for a whole mother like Charity Ngilu to incite crowd against Moses Kuria. Ngilu did the unthinkable to please the handshakers and cover herself from the myriad of corruption allegations leveled against her," Sudi said, in a post on his Facebook page.

The outspoken lawmaker claimed that the Kitui Governor was at one point fired from the Cabinet because of graft.

Kuria is one of the key Tangatanga faces in Mount Kenya region which is President Uhuru Kenyatta's political backyard.

He has of late been one of the President's key critics especially with BBI politics in play going to the 2022 general election even as he roots for Deputy President William Ruto in his presidential ambitions.
