Gatundu South member of parliament Moses Kuria has created a heated debate on social media after calling the Azimio La Umoja leaders Raila Odinga uncircumcised and unfit for presidency according to GEMA community rules.
Taking to his Facebook page, Kuria warned fellow Kikuyus on electing the Azimio La Umoja leader while reminding them how 300,000 Kikuyus took an oath never to elect an uncircumcised president.
“In 1969 when you are under siege you rally 300,000 Kikuyus to take an oath-at a fee- binding them never to elect an uncircumcised person. 50 years later without calling for another oath to undo the first one, you unilaterally make an about-turn and expect the whole community to follow you,” he said
The Chama Cha Kazi leader (CCK) further suggested that the 1969 oath should be undone before the August 9 General Elections.
“The community elders should hold a ceremony to unbind the community from that oath and for closure,” Kuria added.
His remarks have however sparked an uproar on social media. Here are some of the comments.
