Friday May 8, 2020 – Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, has said that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his mandarins who demolished houses in Kariobangi and evicted over 7,000 families in Karobangi leaving them homeless should burn in hell.
In a statement on social media, Kuria argued that the demolitions could have waited until the Coronavirus pandemic in the country was contained.
“I understand that the Kariobangi Sewage evictions are meant to clear the land to set up sewage disposal for an ambitious forthcoming ultra-modern city project.”
“But for crying out loud it’s not that the Ultra Modern City project is being built tomorrow,” Kuria wondered.
He questioned who had authorised the evictions that led to the suffering of women and children, who did not have anywhere else to reside.
“How does one reconcile their conscience to see women and children evicted when they are suffering from lack of money, acute food shortage, unforgiving rains and battling with Coronavirus?”
“How does it benefit you to own the whole world and lose your soul? You will burn in hell,” Kuria proclaimed.
The Kariobangi demolitions have caused an uproar among many, including Amnesty International, a non-governmental organisation, which asked the Government to take full responsibility for the injustices suffered by the over 7,000 families.
The demolition exercise was overseen by the Ministries of Land and Water in a move to reclaim the parcel of land.
