Raila Junior, son of the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, mixed fun with wisdom as he responded to a video that shows controversial Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria allegedly call for the assassination of his father.
Mr Kuria was caught telling an exuberant church congregation in his Kikuyu dialect that “shoot the man (Raila Odinga) for once and Luos will throw stones for one week and forget him once and for all”.
But in a swift rejoinder on his Facebook account, Raila Jr, wrote: “We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families.’ Philip Gourevitch I’d like to buy Moses Kuria that book.”
Gourevitch, a staff writer for the New Yorker, penned the chilling book after spending nearly a year in Rwanda interviewing government officials, hotel managers, doctors, army officers, relief workers, United Nations “peacekeepers”, victims and perpetrators for the 1994 genocide.
An estimated 800,000 people were killed in the space of 100 days.
Raila’s son also offered Mr Kuria some sobering lessons on the genocide in Rwanda, saying: “…and Pay for his return air ticket to the genocide memorial in Kigali… Ask him to send me his preferred travel dates and to act like a leader for once. Every time Moses Kuria trends national unity depreciates a little more.”
