Controversial activist Boniface Mwangi walked out of set as KTN’s Jeff Koinange Live was on air.
This is after Gatundu South Mp Moses Kuria walked into the interview. The activist said there was no way he was going to share the bench with Moses Kuria pointing out that the lawmaker had in fact been accused of hate speech.
“Enjoy the Show men” he said in his parting shot.
Moses Kuria would later on joke about it saying he had forgotten to patent the stunt of “walking out of live interviews” because, he claimed, it was his thing.
Kuria was referring to his interview with Citizen Tv’s Hussein Mohammed where he walked out after a barrage of questions that he termed biased.
Moses Kuria would later be Joined by Dennis Itumbi, Senior Director of Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication in the Office of the President.
After the activist walked out, Kenyans on Twitter reacted with most of their comments clashing on discretion of his actions
Mwangi later told the Star on phone that the host, Jeff Koinange, was to blame
“Jeff lied to me, I asked him who else was on the bench and he didn’t say Kuria was among them. I cannot discuss any matter with the likes of Kuria,” Mwangi said.
But Kuria accused Mwangi of being morally corrupt describing him as a coward.
“Before he points fingers at others, let him cleanse his moral corruption. He is just a small boy who was saved the other day from the streets,” Kuria said.
Kuria further said Mwangi was the kind of a person comparable to the prerogative of the harlots.
“Let him be told that you cannot say about me when am not there but cannot say about me when am there, that is cowardice,” he said.
Kuria further defended the government over the recent Sh5.3 billion scandal at the Afya House.
He accused the Nation Media Group of misleading the public.
He said the Health PS Nicholas Muraguri was right in the way he reacted towards the Business Daily reporter
“Being arrogant is not a criminal offense to take you to jail, it can only take you to hell,” he said.
