The man of the moment or the man on the run Mr. Miguna Miguna left for Canada after causing a real storm in Kenya. Former Grand Coalition advisor to Prime Minister Raila Odinga has dominated the headlines of all the dailies for more than a week now after releasing his book with wild allegations about his former boss Raila and his ODM team. It has been interesting to watch the reactions to the book from Kenyans online and in particular Kenyans on Twitter #KOT and Facebook. Here are some of the views:
Is Miguna’s issue a sideshow?
There those who think Miguna Miguna book is a sideshow and a distraction from the main issues affecting Kenya and Kenyans.
- GINA DIN ?
@gina_din : And what else is going on in Kenya besides the Miguna sideshow ?
- Dennis Kioko ?
@denniskioko: Miguna Miguna to receive President’s commendation for diversionary tactics which have freed the government of the Kabuga saga.
@njiiru Miguna Miguna‘s ego had to be carried in a separate cargo plane.
Philip Lutta: On the flipside, if Miguna’s book had heaped praise on Raila Odinga, the reactions elicited would be complete opposite to what we’ve heard. To Railamaniacs Miguna would not be ‘psychotic’ as is now but would be feted as a hero whose memoirs would forever live in their hearts. To PNU mandarins, wiper, URP & other railaphobics Miguna would be cast as just another ne’er do well court poet and sycophant. True enough, there’s nothing good or bad; it’s thinking which makes it so.
- Ephraim Njega : The bottom-line of Miguna and Githongo’s books is that the King’s court will no longer be a an unfettered bottomless den of corruption and a theater for open and shameless display of impunity. Future Kenyan presidents will now walk the straight and narrow path or risk being unmasked and thoroughly ashamed when their closets are thrust open and the skeletons therein displayed to all and sundry
- Baldwin IV ?
@roomthinker : Miguna (Mee-goon-a) [verb] – Seak bitterly of an ex love after an acrimonious breakup. Example: Philip Moi was Migunad by his ex wife
- ZM ?
@UrbaneKenyan: MigunaMiguna should be charged for aiding corruption. He should have voiced his allegations as they happened. Not on falling out
- Zosi ?
@Switcheeks : Miguna Miguna always sounds like a jilted lover who never got over the magic stick..and is mad that he still loves it..eish!
@vanderwangwe : Spend 3300 shillings on Miguna Miguna’s book? I didn’t know toilet paper was that expensive.
- mainat : Ze Miguna Miguna magna opus is one the best books I’ve read. In the last minute. Worth every Zim dollar I spent on it. He’ll b a good singer
Maxwell Ndung’u Wahome : I think people should take it easy on Miguna. The guy is justified to say the ‘truth’. After all, he is just a nutcase trying to start up his fictional writing career and the fact that his name is in everyone’s lips means he is doing a damn good job at that.
