Ulirogwa na jina yangu! - MP tells off Boniface Mwangi

Gloves off

Activist Boniface Mwangi

Starehe Member of Parliament Charles Njagua alias Jaguar seems to have had enough of the criticism from activist Boniface Mwangi.

On Friday the MP told off Mr Mwangi who had criticized the Kenyan judicial system for the conviction.

Mr Mwangi called out the Kenya judiciary for ordering Jaguar to pay a fine of Ksh40,000 or face imprisonment for six months for the accident which claimed two lives.

"Jaguar killed two people and was found guilty. The court fined him Ksh20,000 or in default six months in jail. Kenya judiciary is a scarecrow. Justice For Sale," Mr Mwangi tweeted.

Jaguar hits back

This did not sit well with the Starehe legislator who tweeted Mwangi back saying: "Wewe ni kama ulirogwa na jina yangu (It's like you were bewitched with my name) (sic)."

He continued: "Accidents have never been intentional. How many times have you caused accidents almost killing your own family members??? And why is your reference only based on my case are there no other people you can quote?"

MP Jaguar was convicted with causing death by dangerous driving in February this year.

The accident occurred at Makutano on the Nairobi-Nyeri highway, within Kirinyaga County on March 21, 2017, along Sagana where a boda boda rider his passenger died in the accident.

Reckless driving

Jaguar was accused of being reckless on the road when he knocked down the motorcyclist Mugo Mwangi and his passenger Joseph Mwangi Kairia.

He was then arrested and charged at the Kirinyaga Law Court with two counts of causing death through dangerous driving.

The MP was convicted and ordered to pay a fine of Ksh40,000 or face imprisonment for six months and the judge further barred him from driving for a one year period.
