Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has denied assaulting a female political commentator and has been freed on a Ksh.20,000 cash bail.

The assault case will be mentioned before judge Marth Mutuku on February 8.

Kuria was on January 10 arrested and detained at the Kilimani Police Station after Joyce Wanja, a political commentator accused him of assault.

”Nilichapwa na Moses Kuria tarehe nane mwezi wa December tukiwa kwa jumba la Royal Media Services. Nilikuwa nimeitwa show ya Kiririmbi kudiscuss mambo ya BBI,” said Joyce Wanja in a viral video.

According to her, Moses Kuria assaulted her because she faulted comments that he made in Kiambu during a fundraiser for orphaned children.

”Aliongea maneno ambayo haikuwa inaambatana na event. Tena aliongea ile haifai kuongelewa mbele ya watoto,” she added.

During a TV interview, Wanja says she asked the Gatundu South MP to tone down his language orchestrating the assault.

She had previously taken to Twitter in a viral video in which she claimed that police officers she had reported to were yet to arrest the vocal legislator.
