After the King King released his new song dubbed “Wajinga Nyinyi”, which linked Kirinyanga Governor Anne Waiguru to National Youth Service (NYS) Scandal, the Governor demanded unconditional apology and unreserved retraction of the song.
In the scandal, the National Youths Service could not account for Kshs791 million during the period Governor Waiguru was the Cabinet Secretary for Devolution.
According to lawyer Ahmednasir, the NYS scandal that saw taxpayers loss millions of shillings was and still a matter of public interest and thus related comments should not be treated as defamation.
“I said and I repeat..I will give legal representation to King King against anyone who sues him for the lyric #Wajinganyiyi . I’m of the considered view that no one among the ruling elites or the masses was defamed. Ugly, crass and lewd commentaries on society are privileged,” he stated.
