Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has threatened four Jubilee leaders who have allegedly made their way into polling stations in Kiambaa constituency.
In a terse post on his social media pages on Thursday morning, the people Empowerment Party (PEP) party leader who has been campaigning for the UDA Candidate John Wanjiku, warned the four led by National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya not to blame him when the consequences befall them.
"Amos Kimunya, Dennis Waweru, Sabina Chege and Jude Njomo, we have been asked as politicians to keep off the polling Centres. IEBC and Police are unable to remove you. Get out of polling Centres or do not blame me," Hon. Kuria wrote.

This comes just a short while after a crowd protested Hon. Kimunya's presence at Kimuga polling station in Cianda Ward.
The charged crowd viewed the Majority Leader's presence as an attempt to influence the election that has been dubbed as a two-horse race between the Jubilee candidate Kariri Njama and UDA candidate John Kawanjiku.
UDA and Jubilee are locked in a battle that goes beyond the confines of Kiambaa constituency.
A win for UDA would cement its place as the party to beat in the MT Kenya region and would be regarded as a ceremonial tolling of the bell at Jubilee's funeral.
A win for Jubilee would reinvigorate the ruling party that has performed dismally in previous by-elections and assert President Uhuru Kenyatta's place as the kingpin of the Mt Kenya region.
