Controversial legislator Mises Kuria has once again taken a swipe at Opposition leader Raila Odinga.

The Gatundu South Member of Parliament reckons the National Super Alliance (NASA) leader should be checked into a mental hospital. This is after the former Prime Minister publicly announced that he would be sworn in as the “People’s President” on Jamhuri Day on December 12.

Raila was speaking while addressing his supporters at Majanja Road, Eastlands on Tuesday.

“I will be sworn in as President of Kenya on Jamhuri Day (December 12) through the people’s assembly, and go to State House. We will meet to discuss the matter and direct on the way forward,” said the NASA leader.

Moses Kuria, taking to his popular Facebook page, said Raila has lost it completely and needs a prayer.

He captioned a poster of Raila announcing the swearing-in ceremony: “Vision 2052. Say a prayer for this man. He has lost it totally. It is illogical to expect him to check himself into a mental hospital.I may have to instruct his bodyguards to take him to Mathari. Purely on humanitarian basis.”


NASA leaders had earlier vowed to swear-in Raila as President the same day as President Uhuru’s inauguration ceremony but instead, marshaled their supporters to hold a memorial service for police brutality victims at Jacaranda Grounds.

The service, however, failed to take off after police sealed off the venue.

Raila also told his supporters that he would not be inaugurated the same way as Uganda’s Kizza Besigye since he is not a coward and that the process would be similar to that of Zimbabwe’s new President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
