Moses Kuria net worth is estimated at kes700 million. Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria is known to speak his mind. The no holds barred politician is known to attend political TV talk show while obviously inebriated. He has used the F word on live TV; walked out mid interview when he felt the journalist was not asking ‘appropriate’ questions. And when it comes to making some of the most inflammatory statements, Kuria leads the pack. The MP made headlines when he asked charcoal and sand traders to pick machine guns from his office before going to Kitui after the county Governor Charity Ngilu imposed a ban on charcoal trade. The latter directive had led to the locals torching vehicles transporting charcoal.
His statement read:
“Whereas Governor Charity Ngilu may have a point on the issue of charcoal trade, asking the locals to take the law into their hands is illegal, unconstitutional and primitive. There must be mechanisms to enforce any national and county laws within the confines of law and order. We need to abide by the law. In the meantime I am asking all charcoal and sand traders to pass by my office and pick up a few machine guns before you travel to Kitui County..”
Then he was the first to break the news that former IEBC director Chris Msando car had been found and that he was probably with a side dish. He took a picture standing besides the car at a time the politics of the country were threatening to be volatile. The second term MP has found himself on the wrong side of the law and was briefly detained on charges of hate speech.

Property owned by Moses Kuria
Owning A Chopper
The Gatundu South MP clarified that he owns the chopper Deputy President uses when making rounds in counties to launch projects. If this is indeed true, then Kuria is loaded. The DP said of the chopper:
“My brother Kuria has just clarified that I borrow the chopper that I use from time to time. People have been on my case over the issue. The owner has been identified.” The cost of a chopper-including assembly, transportation and insurance-is kes300 million.
This is the flat this writer can identify as owned by the volatile politicians.
