Popular city lawyer Danstan Omari has not taken kindly to Kimani Ichung’wah insinuating that he is well known in Nairobi’s infamous red-light district, Koinange Street.
The drama started early this month when Danstan Omari appeared on live TV to discuss the government’s alleged plan to take former President Uhuru Kenyatta to court.
While rubbishing the alleged plot, Omari fired shots at President Ruto, his Cabinet, and Kimani Ichung’wah terming them as “local” leaders.
“Kenya Kwanza want to drag Uhuru to court…Uhuru and Raila are two serious international figures, they control 80% of networks globally… Ruto is a local president and the likes of Ichungwah are only known up to Kikuyu constituency,” Omari said on NTV.
The media house shared a video of Omari’s remarks on Twitter, prompting Kimani Ichung’wah to respond.
The National Assembly Majority Leader tweeted: “Phew! At least am known in Kikuyu by my people unlike the fake media based liar’ only known along Koinange street!”
It is this tweet that has prompted Danstan Omari to serve Ichung’wah with a demand letter to retract the tweet.
Through his lawyer Brian Mabeya, Omari also wants the Kikuyu MP to apologize within seven days.
Mabeya said the tweet was meant to portray his client as a person of loose morals who entertains the company of prostitutes.
“Our client is an advocate of several years standing and has been a lecturer of law, he is also a father and a married man,” the letter reads.
“Your tweet was therefore calculated to injure the image and character of our client in the eyes of the public.”
As of Wednesday, April 12, Kimani Ichung’wah had not apologized nor retracted his tweet.
Phew! At least am known in Kikuyu by my people unlike the fake media based liar’ only known along Koinange street! https://t.co/SfhIJ2LHbY
