Makongeni Member of County Assembly who is also the Minority Whip Peter Imwatok had admitted to assaulting Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.
Imwatok says he assaulted Kuria for failing to respect Orange Democratic Leader Raila Odinga when he was making his entrance into to Mama Ngina Grounds at BBI rally.
According to Imwatok he does not regret dealing with Kuria saying his action was to shape him to BBI ground rules and also to ensure that the MP respects Raila and president Uhuru Kenyatta.
‘‘Kuria was not only disrespecting Raila but he was also disrespecting the president. But we want to tell him that from today henceforth he has reduced himself to our level and we shall now deal with him until he respects Baba and the president,’’ Imwatok said.
He further called on the authorities to ensure that they keep vigil on Kuria and hold him accountable for all the abuses before people take law into their hands.
‘‘Authorities must make sure that Moses Kuria obeys chapter six of the Constitution which speaks about leadership and integrity. Kuria has none.’’He added.
Kuria accused Imwatok of harassing him during BBI rally in Momabasa reason for failing to stand up when Raila was making his grand entrance at Mama Ngina grounds.
