Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and Boni Khalwale went head to head on a live TV interview after Khalwale made a parting shot inferring that there was the possibility of Kuria being drunk.

“I wish we had put an alcohol-blow at the door before we came in,” Khalwale stated in conclusion.

These comments did not sit well with the legislator as he hit back at his counterpart.

“Let me tell you something, before you were conducting abortions, I was still in politics.”

The two were part of the panel hosted by Citizen TV news anchor Hussein Mohammed together with Public Policy Analyst Dr Alex Awiti to discuss the 16% VAT tax added on fuel products.

The Gatundu member of parliament stated that he supports the fuel VAT fully because it will help to develop Kenya’s economy.

He called upon anyone who thinks that they pay added tax on fuel to go and make their claims from KRA when they are making their tax returns.

“I am supporting 16% VAT on fuel. I am not ashamed of it. I am not pretentious. Even if the VAT is implemented on fuel, the basic consumption products are zero-rated. Anyone who pays tax on transportation simply because of fuel is entitled to claim it back when making their annual or monthly tax returns,” Kuria said.

Many viewers questioned his sobriety after his repetitive remarks saying that he did not sound as someone who was speaking with a processed, sound train of thoughts.

One viewer commented that news anchors should stop glorifying arrogance and drama for ratings.

After the interview, Kuria said:
