Mombasa, KENYA: It was first on Thursday, April 24th in 2014 when CORD leader Kalonzo Musyoka drew the wrath of social media users after he was accused of ethnically profiling a journalist during a news conference.

Mr Musyoka was accused after telling a TV journalist Kennedy Mureithi that “his name betrayed it/him” alleging that the journalist had asked a misleading question.

Then Kenyans lashed out at Musyoka on social media terming his actions as unfortunate, coming from a leader in a democratic State, and went ahead to develop the hash tag #SomeoneTellKalonzoMusyoka which went on to trend on Twitter.

This time round the former VP and veteran lawyer was at it again at Likoni in Mombasa, precisely on Sunday afternoon on February 21 during a Wiper party public gathering when he refused to hold a microphone belonging to K24 TV channel.

“Hawana namna…watashikiliwa na nani basi? K24 nani atawaonea huruma? Si mshike tu ninyi wenyewe, siwezi ku shika. Haaya thank you…eeh mwingine-e-huyu. Huyu atawashikia”.

As the Wiper party leader isolated the microphone he addressed the gathering at the Caltex grounds while still holding in his hands some microphones from other media houses covering that function.
