The rapper recently released a hard-hitting anti-corruption song titled ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ that exposes voter ignorance and "stupidity" in Kenya and how it is manifested in the election and re-election of crooks.
I have just been summoned by The CID.— KING KAKA (@RabbitTheKing) December 17, 2019
On Monday, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru ordered the artiste to pull down the song from all social media platforms and apologise to her in writing or face legal suit. Waiguru accused King Kaka of defaming her in a verse in the song referring to a National Youth Service scandal where she was adversely mentioned. Through Kiragu Wathuta & Company Advocates, Waiguru gave the rapper 48 hours apologise in writing and delete the song, failure to which she would sue for defamation. She also threatened to seek orders for the immediate closure of King Kaka’s Twitter account. King Kaka did not defame any politicians in his song because the song was highlighting the truth on Kenya’s tattered social fabric. This is a developing story and will be updated by the hour..
I have spoken to @RabbitTheKing and he informs me that @DCI_Kenya have summoned him. His friends, fellow artistes and Kenyans of goodwill are joining him at DCI Headquarters, Kiambu Road, at 12pm. If you're able to join us, see you there. #IstandWithKingKaka #WaiguruSuesKingKaka pic.twitter.com/XWxpySBcOC— Boniface Mwangi (@bonifacemwangi) December 17, 2019
