After yesterday night's events where Gatundu South MP was arrested for allegedly flouting Covid-19 containment measures and the curfew, some Tangatanga leaders have been pushing a narrative that it was a political witch hunt from the state.

Before going to represent Hon Kuria at the courts today, Senator Kang'ata stated that Kuria was being targeted for fronting a candidate in the upcoming Juja Constituency by-elections, through his People Empowerment Party.

The said candidate is one George Koimburi, who is said to be very strong. Kuria was released earlier today after getting an 8 month jail term sentence or 75,000 shillings fine.
After his release however, there has been chaos in Juja. According to Hon Kang'ata, this is after 'hired goons' demolished a public toilet, which was reportedly built by George Koimeke, Kuria's choice candidate.
"Chaos erupted today in Juja after destruction of a public toilet by alleged hired goons. It had been built by one Koimburi,a candidate vying with Moses Kuria's party , at Weteithie market.Juja should have peaceful elections-let the people decide," wrote the senator.
His message was accompanied by a short video showing residents protesting the destruction.
