Lawyer Society of Kenya Chief Executive Officer Apollo Mboya has hinted that he will take legal action against President Uhuru’s advisor and Jubilee government lead consultant Mutahi Ngunyi.
A team of lawyers, including former aide to CORD Leader Silas Jakakimba, Renee Omondi, Dennis Onyango have all shown interest in instituting legal action against Mr. Ngunyi regarding a hate-filled post on Twitter referring to Luos as ‘poverty stricken’.
Ngunyi is said to be the lead consultant of a think-tank set to manage President Uhuru’s re-election. His comments were widely used by a number of Jubilee politicians which shows a well coordinated network.
Another lawyer, Donald Kipkorir, called on NCIC to institute legal action against Mutahi Ngunyi but NCIC is yet to act even as Ngunyi has persistently insulted Luos in general and CORD leader Raila Odinga in particular. Ngunyi’s comments have stirred Â renewed ethnic posts and insults on social media, proving once again just how ethnically divided the Kenyan society still is despite another election coming in two years.
“Mutahi Ngonyi, will face multi-legal actions and petitions against his person on Monday for among other things, propagating sustained hate campaigns targeting a Kenyan community,”Â Jakakimba was quoted.
Rights activist Cyprian Nyamwamu supported a legal suit against Ngunyi since NCIC has failed to take any action.
The LUO NATION is spell bound by RAILA. Period. That is why they call him BABA like NYAYO. In fact the only BABA after NYAYO. Mental SLAVERY

DPP Keriako Tobiko needs to charge Mutahi Ngunyi for sedition. Causing tribal disharmony is sedition. His hatred of Luos is primeval.

The tribal nonsense has started so early re 2017 elections. Just visit Mutahi Ngunyi's TL and see the electronic PEV. God help Kenya
