A tweet by Canadian based lawyer Miguna Miguna meant to shame ODM party leader Raila Odinga on Thursday backfired terribly after a section of irritated Kenyans came to the defense of Raila Odinga.
Through his twitter and facebook accounts, Miguna thanked the two bereaved families of Mr. Edwin Abonyo (Laboso’s husband) and the family of Ken Okoth for effectively restraining Raila Odinga whom he termed as The peoples Con-Man from exploiting their funerals.
“I wish to thank Mr. Edwin Abonyo, Joyce Laboso’s husband, and the family of Ken Okoth, for effectively restraining The People’s Con-Man Raila Odingafrom exploiting the funerals of their loved ones. Kenyans are fed up with Raila’s opportunism and churlish funeral drama.” Tweeted Miguna.

The post immediately came under heavy criticism from many Kenyans who defended Raila terming Miguna’s post as misplaced and senseless. Here are the reactions;
Papajoe Kogolla This is somebody’s father making a lot of noise in Facebook like a class five pupil
The brother of Ken Okoth and thr wife have both personally and without any reservations passed gratitude to Raila Odinga for being there for the family and standing with them before he was elected all the way to now upon his demise

Victor Lameck I think those drugs Miguna was injected with has interfered with his mental uprights.
Lyshaz Mirabel General I told you it’s either you share what you are smoking or we kidnap you the second time
Douglas Masakhwe Anunda If you didn’t know, you still make a little sense to a few fools. We don’t eat Raila Odinga or in his house. As Kenyans we are also fed up with your stupid opportunism on anything to mention Raila’s name. You are slowly but surely losing sense. Ongeer
When you coming back home we rectify this mess going on
