By Robert Abong'o | May 3rd 2018
After President Uhuru’s call for unity in his state of the Nation address to Parliament on Wednesday, May 2nd, controversial Political Analyst Mutahi Ngunyi took to social media to ‘forgive’ those who abused his during the election period.
Ngunyi is known for his ‘tyranny of numbers’ theory, which he used to explain how the 2007 general election would pan out. He also runs a Youtube channel, The Fifth Estate, where he shares his opinions about arising and current situations in the country.
On Wednesday, the Professor took to his Twitter to forgive his abusers saying, “I, Mutahi Ngunyi, Citizen No. 4855678 and following in the FORGIVENESS footsteps of Uhuru Kenyatta, forgives all the B******S that abused me for speaking my TRUTH during the elections…"
His tweet rubbed netizens the wrong way and received mostly negative responses.

Mutahi Ngunyi will then moderate a session of "How To Do Nothing And Get Away With It" explaining the role of grammar and semantics in hoodwinking the masses allowing Governor's to loot without oversight. #DevCon2018— Cyprian, Is Nyakundi (@C_NyaKundiH) April 24, 2018

What a coincidence,the same day your employer Cambridge Analytica is closing shop you're asking us to forgive you— Mwasaru (@m_mwasaru) May 2, 2018
Forgiveness is a 2-way street. You are supposed to forgive from the heart all those who have offended you deliberately or inadvertently. And then, have the humility to ask for forgiveness from all those whom you have wronged inadvertently or deliberately. Yours sounds incomplete.— James Louis Ndirangu (@ndirangu_l) May 3, 2018
Such mockery of what true forgiveness is. Better to remain silent.— Gilda Odera (@godera) May 3, 2018
