SUMMARY

Mutahi Ngunyi has 'forgiven' anyone who abused him during the electioneering period

His version of forgiveness, however, did not go down well with Kenyans on Twitter (KOT )

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.

President Uhuru’s speech focused on steps he had taken and the progress achieved in the furtherance of national values; progress made in fulfilling Kenya’s international obligation and the state of the nation’s security.

Uhuru outlined his administration’s plan for implementing campaign pledges and measures geared towards achieving his Big Four agenda.


The President called upon Kenyans to remain united after a long electioneering period in 2017 that saw many lose lives and others nursing injuries.
“Never again should a Kenyan life be lost for politics sake. Never again should a Kenyan lose property because of politics. We must we must be frank with ourselves. That cannot happen by itself. Let us admit that we all failed to hold our country together last year. Let us each apologise for our words, anger and malice. From Mandera to Maseno, from Mbita to Mvita, from Lodwar to Lunga-Lunga and embrace our neighbours,” said Uhuru.
