Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Waiguru through her lawyers Kiragu Wathuta and Company Advocates has sent a demand letter to King Kaka alias ‘Kennedy Tarriq Ombima’ demanding him to delete his song ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ released on 14th December from YouTube and other platforms where the song was uploaded. The lengthy letter also goes further to warn King Kaka on consequences of re-distribution of the song.
In the letter dated 15th December 2019, Kiragu Wathuta and Company Advocates accuse King Kaka of uttering allegations that are false and deceptive against their client. They have termed the allegations made in the song against their client as false, mischievous and malicious and vowed to take legal action against the rapper if the demands of the letter are not met. Below is a copy of the letter Anne Waiguru shared on her official Twitter account.
This comes two days after King Kaka released a highly controversial song that named various leaders including Mike Sonko, Ferdinand Waititu and Anne Waiguru for being involved in corruption scandals. In the song that has been trending since its release, King Kaka questions why Anne Waiguru still holds a government office yet she was adversely mentioned in the NYS scandal that rocked the country in 2017. He puts her on the spotlight for buying a biro pen that is usually Ksh 20 for 8,000 Kenyan shillings (80 USD)
Anne Waiguru joins a number of leaders, artists and political pundits who have reacted to the lyrics of King Kaka’s song that has continued to elicit mixed reactions countrywide. Kenyans have taken to Twitter to support King Kaka under the hashtag #IStandWithKingKaka with now exiled politician Dr Miguna Miguna and human rights activist Boniface Mwangi steering the conversation.
