Gatundu member of parliament Moses Kuria has for the first time opened up on the illness that has made him spend several weeks in the hospital.
While speaking exclusively to Citizen TV’s Francis Gachuri, the Gatundu member of parliament explained in details how he sustained third degree burns two weeks ago on his feet that left him hospitalized.
Moses Kuria admitted that a friend of his had been persuading him to use the gadget but he was reluctant although he finally gave in.
“And my feet just exploded and when I came here the following day they said that I have got third degree burns. It is very simple, Francis, two weeks ago a friend of mine who had been insisting for some time.
“Because you know i do a lot of work, a lot of walking and this particular time because i was travelling, getting numb and tired so this guy managed to convince me to use some gadget which to the best of my opinion i thought was authorized.
“This gadget happened to do some slow burning of my feet. I was trying to clear a problem by introducing a killer solution and for me these things happen and I would have kept quiet and told you that I am in Britain or something.
Kuria also confessed that it was vital for him to share the information so that Kenyans take precaution against this counterfeit material from Ceragem.
“But I thought it was important because leaders get sick like everybody else. Everybody is mortal so I didn’t see the need to hide.
“And then secondly, as long as you use a product that is not authorized, i thought that i would use my case to help other people and later on when i had this problem, i asked them whether it is approved by the Kenya Bureau of Standards, NO, is it approved by pharmacy and poisons board, NO, so who has approved it?”
As a result, Moses Kuria said that he has so far sought for administerial statement in parliament from the ministers for the Kenya Bureau of standards and the minster for health to answer how such items could be allowed into the country.
