“ Nyumba ni murathikiriria? Nindiraheiruo wira nimukuona ta nguhota? Matige guitigira, Muthama, na Orengo na nyina moke othe. Ni mui gitumi ni kii? No matume kimudu, giuke na mucinga, Raila rii rithathi ya mutwe akue mauge ni nii.No emenyerere, ona bebe no arie, tutigutorio thinaine ni mundu umue. Na arie bebe tumuthike jumatatu iria inge, maikie mahiga wiki imue na Kenya ithii na mbere . Okoruo ni haro me kwenda niyo me kuona. Muire raila ona bebe no arie na thii ihore na tuthii na no menda thayu moke tuarie tuikare wega IEBC yenda guthii ithii okoruo tii uguo mathii ma kiumag ”
Loosely translated to…” My people, I was appointed to speak with these people. Do you think I will deliver? They shouldn’t fear in fact let Orengo, Muthama and their mothers come. They want to stage a gunman tasked to kill Raila and then blame it on me. But he should be careful because he can still bite the bullet. We won’t be troubled by one person forever. He can as well bite the bullet and we bury him next Monday. His protesters will throw stones for just one week and life continues. If it’s war they want it’s what they’ll get. Tell Raila he can bite the bullet but if they want peace they should come and let us negotiate ”.Kuria is currently facing three charges of incitement to violence, hate speech and fanning ethnic hatred.So far Kuria has dismissed the claims in his Facebook page saying it was a case of misinformation.
“ Some people are masters of disinformation .They said I mentioned the Luo community today. I did not. But they control social media. IG Boinett said anyone who wants to demonstrate needs to give a route and destination of the demo so that police can give protection. As i mentioned in a post yesterday that is very important rest a lone gunman takes advantage and shoots people say for example Raila. That is all i repeated today. When i posted here there were no comments. Finally, I urge all to embrace a balanced diet. Eating fish (Proteins) without balancing with maize (Carbohydrates) is not healthy. Hence my position that people should eat maize“
