Controversial Mt Kenya Musician Taunts Uhuru in Ruto's Presence

Controversial Kikuyu musician Muigai wa Njoroge, during the funeral of Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua's mother (Martha Kirigo) on Tuesday, January 7, taunted President Uhuru Kenyatta in the presence of Deputy President Wiliam Ruto.

In a video shared by blogger Dennis Itumbi, Muigai sang a verse from his latest hit (Tukunia) that has been termed as being critical of the president over his development record in Central Kenya.

Muigai also took the opportunity to market another of his songs Mbari ya Kimendero which loosely translates to 'The Clan of Tormentors' to the crowd that had attended the burial.

"The one that addresses the clan of tormentors, I hope you know it? It is also mine and the latest one dubbed Tukunia (sacks) which Ben Githae refused to sing with me," the musician stated.

Muigai's performance attracted cheers from the mourners as DP Ruto laughed in amusement. 

In the song (Tukunia) that has been trending on social media platforms, the musician warns President Kenyatta about the people that he had surrounded himself with, stating that they would never tell him the truth because of their greed.

In Mbari ya Kimendero, Muigai criticises the government over the fight against corruption and how many leaders were preparing to pass leadership to their children.

He claims that Kenyans don't have the absolute power to fight, but the God of freedom fighters was watching and would revenge on behalf of his people.

"To the clan of tormentors, keep tormenting us and teach your children to torment us but the God of Kimathi Mathenge and Kaggia will surely one day save us from this beastly humans," Muigai sings in the chorus.

The song also curses leaders who siphon public funds, by claiming God would cut off their lineage by making their children impotent.
