Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria held a press conference on Wednesday to address the standoff between the embattled advocate of the High Court Miguna Miguna and the government of Kenya.
In his address, Kuria accused the ODM leader Raila Odinga of orchestrating Miguna’s suffering claiming that he was behind his woes.
However, the MP was reportedly cornered after a journalist questioned him on the practicality of his remarks to the extent of ending the press conference abruptly.
“Moses Kuria held a press conference today at the Parliament Buildings and told the media that Raila is the one who instructed Matiangi to bar Miguna’s return.
“A journalist asked him: “Is Raila more powerful than Uhuru and Ruto?” Kuria ended the press conference,” tweeted an online user identified as Kinuthia Pius.
Lately, Kuria has been criticising the government for denying Miguna entry into the country saying the Lawyer is a Kenyan and that his rights must be respected.
However, Kuria’s accusations labelled at the ODM leader attracted a series of attacks from a section of online users who also cited a previous instance where the MP celebrated Miguna’s deportation.
One Twitter user identified as Erick Atitwa said; “Tanga Tanga imbeciles like Moses Kuria should be the last ones to intimidate Raila over Miguna Miguna. They cheered the despots as they tortured Miguna. They should also suffer one day.”
Another, @oyuga002, blasted Kuria saying: “let me remind Kenyans that when, an allegedly sedated, Miguna was on board a plane being deported, Moses Kuria was curiously on that same plane.
“Kuria himself posted photos and videos of a sad-looking Miguna on the plane. He went ahead and mocked Miguna calling him a Canadian.”
Here is what other Kenyans had to say:
I understand when Miguna was deported Moses Kuria was on the same plane to Dubai……laughing and sending jibes on social media. Now the tune has changed? Mungu halali

Moses Kuria speaks from both sides of the mouth.
Moses Kuria changes his positions based on the political mood he is in.
Moses Kuria is spineless.

I wish people like Murkomen,Moses Kuria n others now pretending to feel for Miguna can read this tweet.When Miguna was deported to Canada non of them protested or felt for him but now they pretend to feel n sympathize for Miguna.Let them continue rejoicing as they did.

#moseskuria aka Adolf Eichman, he of the 2017 mass translocation of the 'jews' from kiambu county.He's one man who ensured MM was airlifted 'under influence' out of Kenya.If he's a fool, we are not and even if we shall forget, history shall revisit for us in the fullness of time.

It was laughable to watch @moseskuria dragging the name of @RailaOdinga in the @MIGUNAMIGUNA_KE viasco @RailaOdinga is not the president, he is not the CS for foreign affairs /interior, kuria is insulting our intelligence by telling us Raila is stopping miguna to come back, aibu

When the shoe is on the other side,people can now consume their brains before they talk…. How I wish the likes of @NdindiNyoro @kipmurkomen & @MosesKuria @WahomeHon were not blind initially when these court orders were first given bt still @MigunaMiguna got deported?
