‘Kigeugeu’ not just a song, it’s the story of Jaguar the politician – KOT
Starehe MP Charles Njagua, alias Jaguar, released the hit song song ‘Kigeugeu‘ in 2011 to criticise politicians who go against their word.
The song is now being used to taunt him after his attempt to change the narrative over his arrest on Wednesday for xenophobic remarks he made against foreign traders.
“I am giving the government 24 hours to deport them, if not, we will march into their business premises, we shall remove them, we shall beat them and take them to the airport. Matiang’i and the Department of Immigration’s job will be to fly them back to their home countries,” the MP had said.
Moments after his arrest, a statement on Jaguar’s Twitter account claimed that his remarks had been misinterpreted.
“My recent sentiments over the invading of our market by foreigners have been greatly recent sentiments over the invading of our market by foreigners have been greatly misinterpreted. I mean peace for the country and businesses should go on uninterrupted and all foreigners are welcome to our country,” read the tweet.
Kenyans on Twitter didn’t take the new position kindly.
