Lawyer Donald Kipkorir and Digital Strategist Dennis Itumbi on Thursday engaged in a war of words on Twitter, leading them to spill unknown details of their interactions.
It all started when Kipkorir gave his two cents on The Media Council of Kenya threatening to revoke licenses of Kenyan-based journalists working for The New York Times following a distasteful photo that was published online following a terror attack at 14 Riverside Drive.
“In threatening The New York Times, Media Council Of Kenya is engaging in puerile stands. It’s like Kenya threatening US or Burundi threatening France. Some threats are just stupid! NYT apologized.
“The Owner of NYT is as rich as Kenya. We should look for our playmates,” stated the lawyer.
Itumbi quickly responded by drawing a comparison between Kipkorir and Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi.
“.@ahmednasirlaw is richer than you and handles legal briefs of higher stature than you. He did not steal from the defunct Kenya Post and Telecommunication either. But when he tweets something you disagree with you tweet back his wealth notwithstanding! @WehliyeMohamed,” he said.
In an attempt to set the record straight, Kipkorir broke down his response into four parts.
“1. Your malevolence against me is because I’ve refused to be your friend.
2. Ahmednasir is my Friend.
3. I’ve never taken handouts.
4. I’ve never stolen… Will never steal.
5. you will never amount to anything in life…you will always be an errand boy & a Media terrorist,” he said.
The post attracted the attention of netizens who had varying opinions on the issue but Kipkorir stood his ground saying:” …In life, we must be humble and accept some things... MCK can’t surely teach NYT any standards... NYT is the Gold Standard of Journalism.”
