President Uhuru’s cousin and top social media strategist Mugo wa Wairimu was robbed at gunpoint in Nairobi and lost valuables worth sh 100,000 during the ordeal which sent his shocked friends into mortal panic.
Mugo who terrorizes people who oppose President Uhuru on Facebook has been on a downward spiral ever since his mentor Moses Kuria got elected as Gatundu South MP.
The exact occupation of Mugo is unknown, and the fact of his relation to the first family remain steeped in controversy, as some close to the presidency disputes it. However, Mugo is a powerful authority in Uhuru’s presidency, and is alleged to be working with the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) on secondment (rumour) from Â National Intelligence Service (NIS).
He was allegedly robbed in Nairobi’s Githurai area, which is increasingly swarming with petty thieves and opportunistic carjackers but ruthless and deadly due to the proliferation of guns and dwindling fortunes of law enforcement.
Many people on social media have wondered how such a senior intelligence official could be abducted despite the rumored police protection he is said to be enjoying.
A new twist has however emerged that he may have abducted himself to exhort money from unsuspecting friends. This is after a security firm they contracted to track his phone ended up finding him at his house, drunk but not disorderly. This has forced his friends to demand apology, with some warning him to never call them when he is finally abducted.

Mugo Wa Wairimu grow some balls!……..you together with your assistantAlbert Kiarie Mkenya faked an abduction, sent messages to many of us at night. Steve K Kewa, Pauline Njoroge Jayne Waithera and myself even called the highest office in the police to save our “friend” from the jaws of death. I texted Dennis Itumbi and PaceTrak AutoCenter at night to try and locate you only to realize that you were in your house drunk. You are a true embarrasment to friendship and I can tell you without mincing my words that when the true abductors come, don’t bother texting me. My advice be a man enough and apologize then walk to a good health facility and get psychiatric support. â€ª#â€Žcandidtalkâ€¬!
