Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru says she has forgiven rapper King Kaka, who recently released a song in which he portrayed her as corrupt.
In the song, Wajinga Nyinyi, that went viral on social media, Kaka linked the former Devolution Cabinet Secretary to the National Youth Service (NYS) scandal, in which millions of shillings were stolen.
The musician wonders how Waiguru was elected to office, yet she was allegedly involved in the looting in which the NYS even bought a pen at Ksh8,000, among other inflated tender prices.
Waiguru responded on 16th December, by demanding that the song to be pulled down on all social media platforms.
Through her legal team, she also demanded a written apology in which the singer would commit himself not to repeat the same, failing which she would sue him.
Four days later, the spoken-word master has ignored Waiguru’s demands, but the governor will now not pursue the matter any further.
“Having watched the antics of #Kingkaka in the last couple of days with reports of fake assassination attempts and DCI summons, I recognise he is a confused attention seeking young man.
“I have, therefore, decided not to proceed with the suit,” Waiguru said in a statement shared on her social media pages.
The governor added that the rapper was being used by someone else and that was why she had decided not to pursue him.
Waiguru criticised the talented young people allowing themselves to be used to destroy other people’s reputations.
In the recent past, Waiguru has sued several people for defamation. They include former Prime Minister and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
The case has since been withdrawn, as the two have reconcile, thanks to a political deal known as the ‘handshake’ between President Uhuru and Odinga.
