‘Wajinga Nyinyi’: DCI denies summoning rapper King Kaka
The country’s top investigator has rubbished claims that he summoned Kennedy Ombima’King Kaka’ over his controversial “Wajinga Nyinyi” song.
The statement from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations came barely an hour after King Kaka appeared on Kiambu Road with an entourage of two laywers, his family and friends.
“We wish to condemn strongly false information being peddled through social media to the effect that one Kennedy Ombima @RabbitTheKing has been summoned. Nobody from @DCI_Kenya has summoned him,” DCI said on Tuesday.
“Anybody wishing for publicity should be warned to desist from using the @DCI_Kenya as platform in seeking media attention,” he added.
King Kaka spent about 30 minutes inside the DCI office on Kiambu Road.
When he emerged, he addressed the media in the company of his wife Nana Awiti, Starehe MP Charles Njagua, Thirdway Alliance leader Ekuru Aukot, activist Boniface Mwangi and two lawyers.
He revealed that his manager had received a phone call at 10:41am and the caller said they should appear at the DCI office at 12pm.
Tuesday’s events come on the backdrop of a demand letter to the rapper from Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.
According to her, King Kaka’s main motive of releasing the Wajinga Nyinyi song was to increase his popularity.
However, in a rebuttal, Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi criticized Waiguru’s suit saying that no one was defamed in the song.
“I said and I repeat..I will give legal representation to King Kaka against ANYONE who sues him for the lyric Wajinga Nyinyi….UGLY, CRASS and LEWD commentaries on society are PRIVILEGED,” he said on Twitter.
His legal counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen added: “As public figures we shouldn’t be too eager to rush to court.”
