In December 2014 controversial blogger Wadi Okengo commonly known as Lieutenant Wadi insulted President Uhuru Kenyatta and Kenyan MPs on social media.
In his post he called Uhuru and Jubilee MPs silly and posted other distasteful remarks and sensationally called for the eviction of a particular ethnic group from other regions of the country. “The way that silly proposed bill by silly president was passed by silly Jubilee skunks and assented by the same silly president was waiting with speed and temerity of the process show how silly president is desperate to dictate and throw away our democratic space,” he wrote.
After setting himself up for trouble, Wadi tried to sneak out of the country through the Busia border but CID officers nabbed him.
Just before his graduation he was quoted by local media saying that he is happy that he has achieved his dream. “I feel relieved and happy because graduating has been my dream. The government’s frustration and intimidation were just like dashing squirrel which could not make me lose the sight of the antelope.”
He was taking political science at Moi University, Eldoret.
