BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,2ND AUG 2019-Gatundu South member of parliament  Moses Kuria  can now afford a smile after  the high  court  dismissed incitement charges against him .The court says the legislature  has no case to answer.

The charges state that on September 5, 2017, at Wangige market in Kiambu county, Kuria used abusive words that were intended to cause physical injury to a person.

In his ruling Chief magistrate Francis Andayi  on Friday said the state evidential video clip was sourced from social media and no evidence was used in the mainstream media.

“The video was purely in Kikuyu and the prosecution failed to avail a Kikuyu translator,” Andayi said.

It will be remembered that this is not the first time the  MP is acquitted of the same offences.He has been acquitted two more related offences before.

He was accused of uttering abusive words to Nasa Leader Raila Odinga and his wife Ida Odinga.

The legislator was arrested on September 11, 2017, after police completed the investigation. He denied the charge.

Kuria is said to have posted on his Facebook account the words saying that they were ready for another election but that they will hunt people who did not elect Uhuru Kenyatta.
