As the plot surrounding the controversies arising from King Kaka’s Wajinga Nyinyi music track thickens, outspoken politicians and learned friends have joined millions of Kenyans rallying behind the rapper, in the wake of a looming lawsuit by Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru.
According to Waiguru, the musician acted maliciously in mentioning her name in his hyped spoken-word piece jibing corrupt government officials who are still walking scot-free.
Lucky for the musician, his imminent legal battle with the politician might be a breeze given the list of legal giants who have volunteered to represent him, should the situation escalate to the court.
Top on the list is Waiguru’s political nemesis Martha Karua, who lost the Kirinyaga gubernatorial battle to the latter in the 2017 General Election.
Karua offered not only to be part of a fundraising drive towards King Kaka’s legal fees but to also be part of his legal representation team.
Also fiercely interested in fighting the rapper’s legal battle is popular lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi, also known as the Grand Mulla, for his mastery of the Islamic law.
Ahmednassir is well known for successfully representing high profile political entities including the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the Jubilee Party in legal suits arising from the disputed 2017 poll.
ODM leader Raila Odinga’s lawyer, Nelson Havi, has also come forward offering to join Kaka’s counsel, expressing optimism that Waiguru is only wasting her time and resources going after King Kaka.
Other public figures who have delved into the Waiguru Versus King Kaka debate include former presidential aspirant Ekuru Aukot, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, and State House digital strategist Dennis Itumbi
