Boniface Mwangi has taken his fight with the Deputy President to another level. Having called out and accused the Deputy President on a number of occasions for several things, he was slapped with a defamation suit by the DP lawyers. However, as many had expected, this only served to invigorate the outspoken activist even further.
'William Ruto had an extra-marital affair and sired a baby with a university student' Boniface Mwangi
In his defense against a defamation suit filed by the William Ruto the activist has raised other issues to underline his point that the DP has no moral authority, Christian values or a reputation to protect. He accuses William Ruto of having an extra-marital affair with a university girl he later impregnated and had refused parental responsibility.
Boniface Mwangi has come out fighting and through his lawyer Gitobu Imanyara, he has filed his defense and counter claims that throw further accusations to the Deputy President. Among the new claims is the accusation that William Ruto impregnated a university girl in 2006 and had refused to take care of the child until he was threatened with court action.
According to his 36 page defense in court, he claims ‘The Deputy President William Ruto has no reputation to protect arising out of the indictment at the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, documented land grabs-both public and private- and previous implications in corruption scandals.’
Further, Boniface Mwangi accuses Deputy President of defaming him. Part of the statement from his legal team reads, ‘Defence filed on behalf of Boniface Mwangi, contains a counter-claim against Deputy President for defamation following comments that the Deputy President made on local media insinuating that Boniface Mwangi is a perpetual drunk, who routinely wakes up late to nurse a hangover'
In the statement Boniface Mwangi alleged that he had reasons to believe that the Deputy President may wish to kill him. He argued that William Ruto had no moral authority nor reputation to protect and that he also had his freedom of expression. Below is a press statement ht e activist and his legal team released.
