Firebrand political activist Miguna Miguna has in many years never stepped out in public without his signature skull cap.
This was the first time a majority of Kenyans saw the partial bald head of the exiled lawyer.
Posting on his social media pages, Miguna claimed that the decision to unveil his head came following constant calls from Kenyan authorities.
“Promises made, promises kept. Despots and their zombies have been demanding to see my head. Here it is,” he wrote.
Surprised netizens expressed mixed reactions, with many noting that they thought the Canada-based legal practitioner had been hiding something on his head.
A few years ago, Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko alleged that the self-proclaimed general had a deep cut, which he did not want people to see.
When a tweep remarked that he looks good without his famous white cap, Miguna dismissed him with his usual unkind words.
“Keep your nonsense away fro me, please. I do what I want!” he replied.
Even though the lawyer threatened to block and report trolls, social media users did not fear to express their comments.
Below are some of the comments:
“This is the right time to travel back to Kenya. With your new and confusing look, I’m sure authorities would assume you are a missionary,” Amos Magut wrote on Facebook.
Joe Maara on Twitter noted that: “Now you have the looks of a real general. This is the ideal image of a professor and a revolutionary. Consider doing away with the kofia.”
Lawyer Steve Ogolla said: “Now that is an intellectual pose, right there. I like your clarity of thought, and consistency. Viva!”
Dennis Munene jokingly tweeted: “Dr Miguna Miguna (MM) is that you or the zombie you’ve been talking about! I’m confused.”
