Controversial Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has announced that he plans to hold “a series of Harambees” to raise the Ksh.6.5 million he was ordered by the court to pay NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua.

Posting via his Facebook page, Kuria referred to the sum as “child support” and announced that he would be holding the first fundraiser at Kerugoya stadium at a date to be announced.

“Today I was instructed by the court to pay child support amounting to Ksh 6.5 Million. I will be holding a series of Harambees accross the country so that you, my supporters can help me. The first Harambee will be held at Kerugoya stadium in the next few weeks. The date will be announced here soon,” posted Kuria.

The post sparked a myriad of reactions from Kenyans online with some getting the humor in the post while some angered by it.

Muiru Paul says, “Your loose tongue and big mouth cost you 6.5 million and you still haven’t learnt your lesson. I can never contribute towards such.”

John Muhoho posted, “Let me educate some people here. Kerugoya is the capital of Kirinyaga county, it was also a perceived strong hold of the serial loser Martha Karua. Moses is just being sarcastic.”
Karua had sued the Gatundu South legislator for defamation after Kuria reportedly claimed she procured witnesses to fix DP William Ruto at the International Criminal Court in the case over the 2007 post election violence.
Karua was suing for damages amounting to Ksh.20 million but Justice Joseph Sergon only ordered Kuria to pay her Kshs 6.5 million.
