I owe nobody any explanations over Facebook post says Moses Kuria

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria says he owes nobody an explanation over his Facebook post about the slain electoral commission official Chris Msando. The MP said social media users are not police officers and he would not give in to their pressure to explain circumstances under which he was tipped off about a vehicle found parked in Nairobi’s Roysambu Estate. On Monday, Mr Kuria found himself in a hot soup after he posted a picture of himself pointing at the vehicle belonging to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) ICT manager. “I owe nobody any explanations. The media and social media are not part of the police and I refuse to be dragged into this political circus. It will be an exercise in futility… what will happen after explaining myself to you?” said Kuria.
