Boniface Mwangi is slowly turning into a force to reckon with. Boniface recently won a petition in the high court filed by Victor Yegon. He was seeking for the prosecution of Boniface following the his alleged defamatory comment against Deputy President William Ruto. The petition was dismissed.
However, Ruto’s case against Boniface is still on.
Last night he was to make an appearance on Jeff Koinange’s live TV show, but after a misunderstanding, he walked out midshow.
Boniface explained why.
“When Jeff Koinange invited me on his show, l asked who was l going to be with? He told me Dennis Itumbi and l declined the invite. l didn’t want to waste my time with a spin doctor who is very allergic to the truth. After a short while Jeff got intouch and told me he will host me alone. KTN produced a poster for the show that circulated online of Jeff and I. Jeff tweeted several times about the show and there was no mention of another person. The show started well and we had barely warmed the bench when Jeff pulled a fast one on me. Moses Kuria, someone with several hate speech court cases, walked in. I immediately stood up and walked out on principle. As a photographer l witnessed first hand what hate mongering can do during the post election violence of 2007-08. Kenya was almost destroyed by tribal politics in 2007-08 which led to the deaths of over 1300 people. Kuria is in court for hate remarks that could lead our country to tribal violence. My values wouldn’t allow me to share a platform with Kuria. I will not share a platform with hate-mongers, thieves, and their apologists. My values are more important than TV airtime. Thank you for watching. #TeamCourage #BMUnBounded”
Some of his fans gave him a thumbs up for walking out on the show.
One wrote, “The man is the epitome of cool. He is in a whole ‘nother stratosphere….
Great respect for you Bonnie.”
Another added, “Hapo nayo umenena. some people may infect you with their venom usiwapatie nafasi!”
