Boniface Mwangi’s witty tip to former Safaricom boss on how to realize ‘death wish’ goes viral

But its his witty suggestion advising Joseph to participate in a peaceful protest that caught the attention of Kenyans on Twitter.
That’s very easy. Just take part in a peaceful protest. https://t.co/mVD1V9pCCG

The activist, who is a renowned public mobilizer in street protests, was presumably alluding to the risk that come with participating in streets protests in Kenya.
Mwangi, himself, has found himself on the wrong side of the law countless times in his infamous run ins with the authorities, earning himself the reputation of perhaps being Kenya’s most a defiant human rights activist.
In a recent demonstration this year Mr Mwangi suffered an injury while leading a demo to protest the killing of protesters by police.
He suffered a burn mark on his chest after an anti-police officer lobbed a tear-gas canister straight at him.
His tweet was shared widely and elicited interesting reactions from his followers.
