Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has weighed in on reports that 2022 elections may be postponed, noting that the same will not happen as there are dire consequences to it.
According to Kuria, not even the Covid-19 pandemic that has left millions dead across the globe can make the election postponed.
He noted that any attempts to postpone the elections will cause lots of trouble in the country.
“I have heard enough doubters from Kieleweke and handshake say that the 2022 general elections could be postponed because of Covid-19. Let me advise you. If you try this there will be no demons in hell. They will all be in Kenya. It shall rain fire, brimstone, lava and sulphuric acid.
“We dont care whether it shall be Covid-22, Bubonic Plague, Malaria, HIV-AIDS, Gonorrhoea, syphilis, small pox, chicken pox, Ebola, SARS, Alcoholism or whatever,” he posted.
It is worth noting that IEBC has not issued any statement on cancellation of the election. In previous instances, by-elections across the country have been conducted in close adherence to the Covid-19 protocols issued by the government.
In most of the by-elections, IEBC banned public campaigns but and advocated for social distancing and adherence to other Covid protocols.
Meanwhile, Kenya is currently on partial lockdown. Nairobi, Nakuru, Kiambu, Kajiado, and Machakos counties have been termed as diseases affected zones and have a current cessation of movement order from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
