Hussein Mohammed Interviews
Hussein Mohammed and Moses Kuria
In July 2015, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria caused a stir on Tuesday evening when
he walked out in the middle of a live television interview.
Mr Kuria, who was being interviewed by Citizen TV anchor Hussein Mohammed, stormed out when a clip of him allegedly inciting youth in Gatundu was about to be played.
The clip, which has elicited anger from Kenyans, shows Mr Kuria urging his constituents to attack politicians opposed to the National Youth Service (NYS) projects.
Hussein Mohammed had asked him to explain his utterances. Moses Kuria claimed a huge portion of the clip had been edited and demanded that the video, which he says was 45 minutes long, be played in full for Kenyans to know what really transpired.
“I was taken out of context. To understand you have to see the full footage of my speech,” Mr Kuria said.
However, Hussein Mohammed insisted on playing the clip, which prompted Mr Kuria to walk out.
