Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on Monday, January 20, issued a statement at Parliament Buildings, threatening to sue anyone who linked him to the murder of the late IEBC ICT Director Chris Msando.
Kuria stated that he was wrongly associated with Msando's murder, which took place on July 29, 2017, after the IEBC official and his friend, Carol Ngumbu, went missing on July 28, 2017.
“I have had to live with a barrage of innuendos and accusations over the death of Msando for more than two years now.
"I must now say enough is enough. I really want to bring this matter to an end. Any further linkage of my name to the disappearance will be dealt with by the courts," he declared.
The MP explained that during the weekend of Msando's disappearance, a picture of the vehicle he was in surfaced on the internet.
He added that during this time, members of the public contacted and informed him that a vehicle similar to that of Msando had been spotted at Roysambu, Nairobi County.
Further, Kuria stated that at the time, he was attending a function alongside Murang'a Woman Representative Sabina Chege, when he called the Kasarani police commander (OCPD) and gave him the piece of information.
“What police should tell Kenyans is what they did with the investigation. It’s not fair to continue associating Sabina and I with this. We did what any reasonable leader would.
“No one is immune to, or happy with this kind of accusations. I only volunteered information. I wonder why you, the media, the opposition and the civil society are not putting pressure on police to tell us what they did with the investigation," he concluded.
On Sunday, January 19, the MP suffered a major blow after the state reportedly withdrew his security, following his intended exposé on the gruesome murder of Msando.
Taking to his Facebook account, the lawmaker promised to shed more light on the matter by holding a presser on Monday, January 20, after claiming that he was tired of being linked to the murder.
The National Police Service then issued a statement clarifying that VIP protection would be withdrawn from MPs facing charges in court until their names were cleared.
"To avoid compromising and demeaning the very essence of which the police are mandated, the National Police Service shall not provide security detail to VIPs who are involved in or suspected to be involved in crime until they are cleared by the courts," the press release read.
