I stand corrected
Vocal human rights activist Boniface Mwangi was on Friday forced to take back his own words after starting a Twitter spat with Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja.
Mwangi had accused Mr. Sakaja of remaining mum on the controversial deportation of lawyer Miguna Miguna and only speaking after he was nominated to be the Deputy Governor by Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko.
The activist’s allegations were not taken kindly by the Senator, who went back to the archives to retrieve evidence of him speaking at the Senate on Miguna’s deportation.
Sakaja expressed his disappointment in Mr. Mwangi stating: “I’ve known you to be many things but not a liar. I’ve spoken about that and all those other issues on the floor of the Senate. That’s where I am mandated to speak and play my role. I defended his fundamental rights. The two issues are completely different".
After the correction, Mwangi ate humble pie and said he "stands corrected".
