Mutahi Ngunyi Threatens to Sue Miguna Amidst Fierce Exchange

The war of words between political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi and lawyer Miguna Miguna has taken a new turn, with the former threatening legal action over a perceived derogatory remark.

The situation arose when Miguna, known for his confrontational approach, referred to Ngunyi as a “thief”.

“Miguna. I offered to mentor you. You abused me. If you call me a thief again without evidence, I will sue you in Kenya and Canada. Then I will have your Runda House auctioned. I have the LR number, details, and means,” Ngunyi wrote.

In a quick rejoinder, Miguna dared him to proceed and sue him while maintaining his words.

“Try me. Go ahead and sue. I need to clean the High Court of Kenya and Ontario Superior Court of Justice floors. We are ready to recover and restore all the public funds,” his post reads in part.

The two have been engaged in a heated exchange of words on X with the heart of their disagreement being President William Ruto’s recent statement about the state of the judiciary.

Ruto, while attending the funeral of Senator John Methu’s father, indicated that he would defy judgments made by ‘corrupt’ courts.

Miguna appeared to disagree with Ruto.

“We need a strong, independent, competent and ethical judiciary…,” he said.

Ngunyi on his part defended the president.

“As the executive, you must drain this dam. Do it for the people despite the people. One man with God is with the majority,” he wrote.

He went on to explain that the only way to transform Kenya is to break the law. 

He argued that “if we did not disobey the court on Saba Saba of 1990, Kenya would still be a party dictatorship”.

But, Miguna fired back at him saying he (Ngunyi) never participated in the struggle for democracy as alleged.

“It wasn’t a struggle by Statehouse Moi, KANU, or the Executive against the judiciary. It was a struggle by patriots against the Moi/KANU tyranny that you played guitars to,” he said.
