In his most blatant declaration of war against the President, Kuria told the crowd that President Kenyatta had been bewitched by ODM Leader Raila Odinga and urged them to pray for their son.

He made the statement while in Kabete where he had attended a charity event organised by musician-cum-politician Loise Kim.

"I want to urge you Christians. I had always thought that witchcraft is not real but now I have no doubt that Raila has bewitched our son Uhuru."

"Uhuru and Ruto are fighting and Uhuru's appointed officials are fighting the people who helped him get elected. Uhuru's house is collapsing because he has been bewiched. Pray that Raila's wirchcraft can reduce. Raila has made Uhuru to lose his mind and we want to pray hard enough so that we can have the old Uhuru, the one we elected," Kuria stated, seemingly intoxicated.

The Gatundu South MP, once a close ally and confidant of the President, appears to have fallen out with his party leader and aligned himself with Deputy President William Ruto.
