Political activist offers white goat as apology for abusing Luos

09 September 2015, 18:28 William Korir

Nairobi - Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has offered a white goat as an apology for his insults towards members of the Luo community.

Ngunyi presented the goat Wednesday to Law Society of Kenya CEO Apollo Mboya in Nairobi over his Tweets targeting CORD leader Raila Odinga and members of the Luo community.

Ngunyi suggested that Raila was a king of poverty and impoverishment and that Luos were deprived as a result. 

He also last month apologized for the slur.

In a series of Tweets, Ngunyi termed the decision of the Luo community to continually back Raila in political aspects had left them a poor community.

 " The Luo Nation MUST liberate itself from the BONDAGE and poverty-producing SPELL of Odingaism. PERIOD. Is there a MOSES amongst the Luo?," he said in one.

" Raila is NOT the LUO NATION. To think he is amounts to PAVLOVIAN CONDITIONING. I was DEAD WRONG on Miguna. We need to RE-READ his Renditions," he added in another.

" Are LUOs poor? No idea.THEY SHOULD TELL US. Are there POVERTY STRICKEN LUOs. YES. Statistics: 82% of people in BONDO live below poverty line," he stated in yet another.

However, a few weeks later he apologized.

" I apologize to the LUO NATION unreservedly. No harm INTENDED. I am a product of Luo SCHOLARS whom I RESPECT immensely. I eat the HUMBLE PIE.

He had also come out  and criticized Mboya for questioning his conduct and continued name calling of Luos.

" Apollo Mboya should be FIRED for abuse of office and demeaning the law profession. If he passed his law school, he should re-read my tweets. I am writing to LSK Council to find out if LSK has become a branch of CORD. And if one Apollo Mboya speaks for council on this matter," he had said.
