Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on Saturday evening broke his silence hours after being manhandled during the Kitui BBI rally.
Taking to social media to comment on the matter, the MP shared video footage of the incident and captioned it with a written attack directed to President Uhuru Kenyatta and the ODM leader Raila Odinga.
According to Kuria, the incident was a sharp contrast of what the BBI course is all about.
“The two brothers are very serious about uniting this country. This is how….,” wrote Kuria on Facebook.
In a different post, Kuria announced that he had forgiven all those who wronged him and also questioned why his close friend Governor Charity Ngilu could orchestrate his woes at the rally.
He went ahead to caution the Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka from trusting the ODM leader saying the latter has cheated him thrice insinuating that time was nigh for him to chart a different political journey.
The Gatundu MP also expressed his gratitude to the people of Kitui for fighting for his return to the podium at a time when a group of people were determined to whisk him away from the meeting.
“Charity Ngilu (A very close personal friend, it hurts), Dr James Nyoro and those in whose name violence was visited upon me, Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga. I forgive you. Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing.
“For that who-yet again after Mombasa- beat me up, I forgive you too. I know you all personally as we meet in Gor Mahia games. To the great people of Kitui, God in heaven knows how emotional and grateful I am to you. You have done me and my colleagues proud.
The two brothers are very serious about uniting this country. This is how….
“To former Kitui Governor and next Governor of Kitui Prof Malombe, Kitui people miss you and it was clear. For Kalonzo Musyoka my friend, open your eyes man. Raila has cheated you thrice and you are still singing praise and worship. And to all Kenyans, fasten your seat belt,” wrote Kuria on Facebook.
Video footage of a push and pull that was witnessed at the rally showed the Gatundu MP being forcefully ejected from the podium by a group of police officers and organizers of the rally.
Reports have it that Kuria together with fellow Tanga Tanga leaders including Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa Senators Kipchumba Murkomen and Aaron Cheruiyot arrived after the chief guest, ODM leader Raila Odinga, had taken his seat.
The leaders found no seat set aside for them and went ahead to insist that they had to be given a seat at the podium where they wanted to sit together with fellow leaders.
It is there that a scuffle ensued leading to an incident where they were roughed up.
The leaders, however, claimed that Kitui residents forced the organizers to find alternative seats to accommodate them.
The next BBI rally is set for 8th February in Embu.
