On Monday, June 14, the country was thrown into grief following the untimely demise of former Gem Member of Parliament Jakoyo Midiwo and business mogul Chris Kirubi.
Following the two incidents, Kenyans joined businessmen and political leaders to send condolences to the families of those who lost their loved ones.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, deputy president William Ruto, ODM chief Raila Odinga were among those who mourned Midiwo and Kirubi as fallen heroes who have left a history that will be written and read by the next generation following their contribution to the nation.
However, exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna seemed to differ from the millions of Kenyans and instead rejoiced at the death of the two.
The controversial lawyer took to his official Twitter condemning the two over what he termed as being thieves who destroyed the country as a result of their ‘greed, selfishness, tribalism and hate.’
“My sincere condolences to the family, relatives and friends of Kenya’s Chris Kirubi. You destroyed Kenya in pursuit of greed, selfishness, tribalism and hate,” Miguna said.
Miguna, who was deported from the country after the dramatic swearing in of ODM leader Raila Odinga as people president insulted Kirubi, saying the industrialist billionaire would use his wealth to give Kenya a new look.
“The trillions of shillings Chris Kirubi had been more than enough to transform Kenya into a first-class country with gainful employment, modern housing, food, and universal comprehensive healthcare for everyone,” Miguna added.
The move has sparked mixed feelings as many Kenyans appear to be outraged by the way Miguna mourned their departure.
Miguna had very few kind words for Jakoyo Midiwo, with whom they supported ODM and its leader Raila Odinga.
