Gatundu MP Moses Kuria on Saturday, January 26 took to Facebook claiming to have been harassed by Nairobi’s Makongeni MCA Peter Imwatok during the Mombasa Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally at Mama Ngina Waterfront.
Kuria claimed the only mistake was failing to stand up when ODM leader Raila Odinga entered the venue.
“Dear Raila Amolo Odinga. This is the idiot MCA Peter Imwatok of Makongeni, Nairobi who accosted me, took away my BBI hat and even my seat at the Mombasa BBI meeting. He is also the ODM minority whip in Nairobi County.
My fault? Refusing to stand up when Baba entered the venue. Question: Baba is this how Kenya would be if you were to become President?”
The post elicited mixed reactions with most of the commentators penning humourous messages on how the MP should have behaved.
PK Kasirim: You should have behaved sanely by respecting “The owner of the earth”.
Ndagìtarì Kìnyùngū Mîcheké Jnr: Wewe unawezananga tu na wanawake kumbe wanakuwekanga jeve ivi?
N M Songok: Very strange, stupid and annoying. Anyway, they must understand Mombasa is not the entire country.
Mary Kigwa: Úkúhúragwo wîna mwana múgongo? (Were you carrying a baby on your back when you were being attacked?
Michael Ouma: Next time I hope you will stand up when Baba comes around!! Just pray that you were away from Orengo & Junet, you would have left the venue naked!
Jack Jack: You should thank God he showed you some mercy. When baba is entering the podium you should not just stand but also Sneeze thrice while smiling and crying at the same time.
Andy Kirimi: Surprisingly, you are addressing the same person you couldn’t stand to accord him respect when other leaders did.
Joseph Juma Ogal: Be disciplined! Stop lamenting! Organize to have a BBI cap and a copy. Mobilize your people to support BBI!
Mwana TheWakanda: Don’t worry kuna home na away.. Acha wakuje home ata viti hawatakalia. Some of them will be watching it from home or at the crowds side. We conceded at their home we welcome them kwetu. We shall revisit
Essy Okenyuri: He is joking with the only man who milks a lion while seated on a porcupine. He should not try
