Miguna in Nakuru
22 August 2012, 16:24
The lawyer cum Author Miguna Miguna has said the aim of his book “Peeling Back the Mask” was to cause sleepless night for some “people” by making them feel angry and also make them spit on the book, which he said it had over archived its mandate within that short period of time since it’s launch five weeks a go.
Addressing the gathering on Wednesday in his first visit to Nakuru County as part of his journey in all the 47 Counties in the country, Miguna said the reason why he chose to start with Nakuru town was because of the culture the town holds in the history of Kenya and also because it is the nerve center of the country when it comes in politics.
“Nakuru holds a lot of things in Kenya’s politics and also because it symbolizes what true patriotism is supposed to be like.”
Miguna also said the biggest challenge facing the country was the high level of ignorance especially among the normal “Mwanainchi” level saying the book will not make any sense to any one unless everyone takes time to read and understand his book.
At the same time the author of the book also challenged both the Prime Minister Raila Odinga and his comrades of ODM to sue him in court, saying his not running a way from anyone and that he is here to stay.
“Many thought my journey to Canada was an act of running away, but let them know Miguna Miguna dose not run away from anyone and I dare any ODM members and Raila himself to take me to court and sue me about the book.”
On the issue of ICC, Miguna said he was not the man to question but rather a normal Kenyan who chose to expose the truth of what he knows about the 2007/08 chaos, saying those who were questioning his book might as well write their own book since it is a democratic right in Kenya.
The self proclaimed outstanding lawyer said he will stop at nothing at making all Kenyans learn the truth about the leaders in the government and their past as well.
But his visit was received with mixed reactions from the crowd who had turned up with others chanting “go baby go” while the other section screamed and shouted his name saying “come baby come”.
