Three lawyers have offered to represent rapper Kennedy Ombima alias King Kaka amidst a pending lawsuit by Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru over what she terms as defamation if he does not pull down the song Wajinga Nyinyi on YouTube.
In the song, Kaka wonders why the governor was elected in office despite the NYS monies having disappeared under her watch.
Lawyer Nelson Havi was the first to offer his legal representation followed by constitutional lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi and former Kirinyaga gubernatorial seat candidate Martha Karua
In the letter written by her lawyer Kiragu Wathuta and company advocates, the Kirinyaga governor argues that she was not at any point found guilty of the loss of funds.
“ You ought to have known that despite extensive investigations, and several prosecutions in relation to the loss of funds at NYS,our client has never been charged in a court of law as an accused person in relation to NYS and any other scandal” reads part of the letter.
Kenyans have taken to twitter to stand with the rapper in a hashtag #istandwithkingkaka.
It is not yet clear if the lawyers will represent the rapper pro bono.
On Tuesday, a group of artistes gathered at the DCI headquarters after the rapper claimed that he had been summoned to appear before the DCI headquarters.
However in a twist of events, the DCI in a statement denied summoning the Dodoma rapper arguing that he was using social media platforms for his own gain.
