Controversial Canada-based lawyer Miguna Miguna, who is known to fearlessly tackle and give his opinions on almost every political event or issue unfolding back home, has a softer side, after all.

One thing the firebrand political activist and author of the political expose, Peeling Back the Mask, Miguna has mastered, is being able to largely keep his family out of the limelight.

Well, until Thursday, 14th May, when the Kisumu-born Miguna could not let the day pass without marking his wife, Jane Miguna’s birthday.

Posting on his Facebook page, the self-proclaimed general said he was grateful that his spouse was keeping him sane.

He comically added that Jane was also helping him to condemn the societal rot in Kenya, even though they are both in Canada.

“Happy birthday, Nyar Gem, Min Oda kod, Nyithind Kano! We are getting younger, more energetic and fiercely revolutionary against all the despots, con men and renegades. Viva #UhuruMustGo,” he wrote.

Jane got engaged to Miguna in 2000 in a traditional ceremony.

On 14th February (Valentine’s Day) this year, they celebrated their 20th anniversary.

“My lovely wife, the girls and I celebrated our 20th anniversary of marriage, revolutionary love, affection and focus. No matter what the despots and con men do, we are focused like laser beams! Viva!” he jotted.

In the meantime, Miguna’s birthday message to his wife has, as usual, attracted a lot of comments.

The netizens robustly expressed themselves in the comments’ section.

Some Facebook users believe that the exiled lawyer must be lucky to have such a wife, who can withstand his radical antics.

Another group argued that Jane must be the only person who is able to calm the unapologetic online troller.
