Files with witness statements on Moses Kuria’s case go missing


The DPP has been directed to establish who stole witness statements in the hate speech case against Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

The directive by a magistrate  at the Milimani court on Monday came after the prosecution sought three more weeks to establish how the police file was messed up with.

“I, therefore, grant the last adjournment to allow the prosecution to put their house in order by establishing who stole the statements,” magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot said.

Moses Kuria was charged for uttering words which indicated it was desirable to bring death and physical injury to persons in Kenya.

He is said to have said the words in Kikuyu .

“If I get a person, you and that is why I said, you should come with your pangas, these pangas are not only for clearing, have you heard? A person like that you should slash and finish him.”

The MP is said to have committed the offence on June 26, 2015 at Gatundu Stadium in Gatundu town within Kiambu county.

In July this year, the MP was charged afresh with incitement. He denied the charges.
