In Summary

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua has threatened to sue activist Boniface Mwangi for accusing him of blowing up his Machakos house.

In a statement through his lawyer, Mutua has demanded a written apology from Mwangi by end of today and retracting of his claims.

“Not later than close of business October 21, that you publish an apology which is acceptable to us in the manner approved by our client.

“That you pull down from the internet and any other web-based resource or archive where the said application has been stored, posted, and provide a certificate to our client of such pulling down the publication,” read part of the statement.

“Members of the public with any information to assist with the investigation are encouraged to contact the police,” National Police Service added.

Mwangi faults Governor Mutua

Preliminary investigations revealed that the building was blown off by detonators causing three holes and destroying the foundation.

The 38-year-old photo-journalist-cum-activist on Thursday morning claimed the whole incident is a ploy by a powerful politician to intimidate him.

“I’m a resident of Machakos County. An hour ago,… thugs have bombed my house (under construction), sank the foundation and robbed my workers. I can’t go there now for safety reasons,” said Mwangi.

He added: “The state working for… have bombed my family home in Lukenya, Machakos county and robbed my employees. They realized hashtags can’t scare me and they’re now using explosives. I still don’t fear because the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want, He shall protect me.”

In his defense, Governor Mutua says should Mwangi fail to withdraw his claims, he shall seek court’s intervention to have the activist compensate him for damages caused by his allegations.
