‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ earns King Kaka a summon to the CID and defamation suit by Anne Waiguru

Rapper King Kaka is seemingly bearing the brunt of speaking out on the country’s political, social and economic status.

Since the release of his poetic wake-up call to Kenyans dubbed ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ King Kaka has been applauded for his courage to say it as it is.

Now, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru wants rapper Kennedy Ombima aka King Kaka to pull down the hard-hitting spoken word piece and offer an apology for defaming her.

The governor, through Kiragu Wathuta and Company Advocates, in a letter sent to King Kaka on December 15, 2019, wants the rapper to within 48 hours to offer a full unconditional admission of liability in writing.

“Our instructions from you which we hereby do the compliance of the conditions set hereafter within 48 hours of the date of the receipt of the date of time of dispatch hereof; that you offer unequivocal unqualified and unreserved retraction as well as an apology to our client subject to review and approval,” reads the letter, which puts the artiste on notice of a fresh suit in every redistribution of the song.

According to the governor, the artiste made reference to her in the song in a highly defamatory way, which depicts her as extremely corrupt and has been engaged in the theft of public funds at NYS, which she states is not true.
“You ought to have known that despite extensive investigations and several prosecutions in relation to the loss of funds at NYS, our client has never been charged in a court of law as an accused person in relation to NYS or any other scandal and that she has been persistently and publicly demanded full investigations of the matters relating to the NYS affairs and there has been no evidence whatsoever of her culpability availed to or obtained by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Corruption on any allegations pertaining to the NYS affairs,” the demand letter further states.

Waiguru says that the release of the song has occasioned ‘grave irreparable and permanent damage to her reputation.’

She is also accusing King Kaka of using her name to gain popularity and to enhance the profits of publicity at the expense of her reputation.

Following the lawsuit, the father of two who had previously asked that his fans to pray for him posted on his social media pages saying that he had been summoned by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
