Kirinayaga Governor Anne Mumbi Waiguru has threatened to sue Kenyan rapper Kennedy Ombima alias King Kaka over his latest hit song dubbed Wajingi Nyinyi.

According to Waiguru, the song has lines that defame her by labeling her as corrupt and implicating her in NYS scandal.

But is King Kaka the first person to be sued by Waiguru for defamation?

Well, Waiguru will not be doing this for the first time.

History of her sues

On August 27, 2015, Waiguru sued Google to reveal the identity of the owner of a Kenyan blog.

The then Devolution secretary renewed her battle with Internet giant Google, from whom she was seeking compensation for an alleged defamatory story that was published by a Kenyan blogger.

Ms Waiguru filed a fresh suit against California-based Google, its subsidiary Blogger Inc and Kenyan website Daily Post seeking payment for the story, which was published in the wake of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s sacking of the former chairman of the Youth Development Fund, Gor Semelango.

Ms Waiguru had in a separate suit in 2014 sued Google and its Kenyan subsidiary Google Kenya seeking to compel them to reveal owners of the Daily Post website.

On 25th September 2015, Waiguru sued former Prime Minister Raila Odinga for linking her to NYS Scandal.
