Political activist Boniface Mwangi has viciously attacked the character of Deputy President William Ruto by openly linking him to the death of Jacob Juma.
Through a tweet, Mwangi claimed that Ruto was behind the killing of his ‘fellow thief who became a whistleblower’.
Ruto’s lawyers have now demanded a retraction to the defamatory tweet within 7 days failure to which the activist will be sued.
Kilukumi and Company Advocates who represent the DP, said the tweet has injured their clients reputation and demanded for an apology from the activist.
The tweet received mixed reactions with a section of Kenyans accusing Boniface of disrespecting the DP.
Boniface has not pulled down the tweets.
This is what Kenyans had to say:
