kuriaMoses Kuria used the words ‘eat maize’ on Sunday, interpreted by many to mean Raila should be shot dead.

‘Maize’ in this statement was seen as a ‘polite’ way of saying bullet.

However in his defense, Moses Kuria says he was not talking about Raila’s assassination, but his jailing. In a handwritten statement at Pangani Police Station, Kuria said that it is common practice to use eating of food to symbolize being jailed. He quoted Raila who some time back said that “Those who ate IEBC chicken should now eat beans.”

It’s a brilliant argument from him, but do you buy it?

What do you think is the true meaning of ‘eating maize’?
