In Summary

  • Kuria was teargassed as he, a few other legislators and members of the public marched to the Nairobi Area police station to demand the release of Starehe MP Charles Njagua who had been arrested over alleged inciteful remarks.
  • A chocking Kuria addressed the media afterwards saying the whole spectacle was "unnecessary" and could lead into a revolution.

Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria was in a mood for revolution on Wednesday and was having visions of being a freedom fighter when ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna showed up with a reality check cum sick burn.

Kuria was teargassed as he, a few other legislators and members of the public marched to the Nairobi Area police station to demand the release of Starehe MP Charles Njagua who had been arrested over alleged inciteful remarks.

But the police were having none of it and teargassed the crowd that was chanting “Jaguar” outside their station and did not matter if you were a honorable member, journalist or innocent bystander, everyone was left teary eyed and choking.

A chocking Kuria addressed the media afterwards saying the whole spectacle was “unnecessary” and could lead into a revolution.

“I think we are joking with serious matters because this kind of escalation might result in some totally unintended consequences, I think someone is misadvising this government,” he said.

And then the clincher; “We are setting this country in a path that might be irreversible. Petrol on small embers which might be a big fire of a revolution. It is coming, I can smell it. The smell of a revolution is stronger than the teargas that we are taking here today…”

On seeing Kuria’s sentiments on Twitter, Mr. Sifuna, who has inhaled his fair share of teargas in his political career because of his being in ODM and their numerous protests every election cycle, had a hilarious take.

Unakula teargas nusu saa unaanza kunusa revolution… Na ukikula weekly for a year kama wengine wetu si utanusa second coming?” (You experienced teargas for 30 minutes and now you are smelling a revolution… What if you experienced it weekly for a year like some of us, you will smell the second coming?)
