Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has reportedly been arrested for raising political temperatures ahead of tomorrow’s General Election.

Kuria has not rested today. He has moving around holding press conferences dubbed, “Linda Kura”, for the Kenya Kwanza Alliance of Deputy President William Ruto.

In his pressers in Nakuru, Embu and Kirinyaga, the Kiambu gubernatorial candidate sensationally claimed that the State was intentionally and illegally determined to influence the presidential election results.

According to the lawmaker, President Uhuru Kenyatta is hellbent on forcing the results in favour of Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga.

Intimidation, blackmail, ballot stuffing and generating artificial results are some of the claims Kuria made.

He alleged that tens of motor vehicles with marked ballot papers had been dispatched by the State.

“Top Alert!! 40 trucks with marked ballot papers will leave State Lodge Nakuru to various destinations in the next 20 minutes. Media, public please stop them. Most of them have GK registration numbers,” he alleged in one of his social media posts.

He urged supporters of UDA to be on the lookout and reports any incidents likely to interfere with the poll.

Before his arrest, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) had called out the lawmaker for creating unnecessary tension.

He was told to record statements with the police and stop inciting DP Ruto’s supporters.

“The attention of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations has been drawn to a sensational social media post attributed Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, insinuating very serious allegations in respect to election offences.

“The directorate is urging the legislator to urgently report to any police station or DCI office close to him, to help with investigations for appropriate and immediate action,” the DCI said in a statement.
