Mugo wa Wairimu isn’t your roadside jubilee government apologist. During his heydays, he used to defend the government by the crudest means possible, including personal attacks on CORD leaders even when mourning.
His (initial) low came when he celebrated the death of Fidel Odinga, castigating the bereaved CORD leader Raila Odinga for having named his child after a ‘dictator’, and claiming, as he always did, that such were the stuff that exposes Odinga’s dictatorship.
Even his diehard supporters couldn’t stomach that, for in Kenya, despite peoples’ differences, there exists ‘red lines’ that civility requires you don’t cross. That’s our nation’s percularity. But Mugo, cheered by a small band of hateful pinheads, crossed it all the same.
His day had not come.
Yesterday, when a member of the public, Wesly Njoroge, tipped the police of his presence in a dingy hotel in Limuru, that marked the ugly turn of events in his life.
Limuru police handed Wairimu over to the CID, who took him to their headquarters, where he recorded statementsÂ on the activities at his clinic. He was later booked at Muthaiga Police Station.
By Thursday, four women had recorded statements on allegations of rape against Wairimu.
He will appear in court this morning.
