Miguna Lectures Local Media Houses over Moi’s Death Coverage

Deported firebrand lawyer Dr Miguna Miguna has taken a swipe at the local media houses over what he has termed as ‘misrepresentation of facts.

The lawyer claimed that the accounts shared by the late former President’s political students were skewed and that the media had an obligation to interview those that suffered under Moi’s regime.

This came after Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula, ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi and former city politician Fred Gumo eulogized Moi as a man of good standing.

Gumo stated in his interview that the late President was a generous man who would not eat alone and that he did everything possible to command respect from the political class.

However, Miguna would rebut his statements on Moi, stating that Gumo’s hands were not clean either.

In his barrage of tweets, Miguna recommended a list of political prisoners that Moi had during his reign to be interviewed.

These, he said, were Koigi wa Wamwere, Ngugi wa Thiong’o and his lawyer Khaminwa, who suffered under the former President’s iron-fist rule.

President Moi died on Tuesday, February 4 after a long illness that saw him in and out of the hospital for the better part of 2019.

His burial has been scheduled for Wednesday. February 12 at his Kabarak home.
