We have always known that Miguna Miguna is quite sensitive and reacts even irrationally whenever he is attacked. He calls every person who does not agree with him as a member of the ‘cartel’, and every media that does not give him adequate airplay ‘compromised’.
Miguna is man with the pride and arrogance of ’10 Kabogos’, who flies off the handle at the slightest provocation with his favourite tool of trade being Twitter.
On Wednesday night, businessman Chris Kirubi was on Jeff Koinange Live. As expected, the topic of the Nairobi gubernatorial race came up.
Kirubi had something to say about both Sonko (and his alleged son Polycarp Igathe) and incumbent Kidero.
When Jeff asked him about Miguna Miguna, Kirubi acted like he doesn’t even know him. ”Who is that again, who is he?” he said.
That touched a nerve and Miguna wasted no time taking advantage of his right of reply.
”I’m told that @CKirubi a functionally illiterate pedophile & GRAND LOOTER of Kenatco & Uchumi has disrespected me on #JKLive @KoinangeJeff” he tweeted before kicking off a tweet and retweet storm.
Here are the other tweets.
All this was set off by Kirubi not wanting to comment on or acknowledge Miguna. This is surely sound warning to anyone thinking of taking a similar approach.
Chris Kirubi is yet to comment.
