Renowned activist Boniface Mwangi has announced that his kin should not give any politician a platform to speak if he dies.

Mwangi took to his social media accounts to make the proclamation after what he terms as a show of hypocrisy among the political class.

The outspoken activist claimed that certain politicians, who fear rubbing shoulders with their political allies, have privately confided in him that they condemn the vandalization of his Machakos home.

Mwangi had accused Machakos governor Alfred Mutua of sanctioning the 'bombing' of his house in Lukenya, Machakos county. He criticized politicians from shunning away from publicly condemning the act by fear of losing political allies.

"Your favourite leaders are calling me privately to condemn the bombing but they won’t say anything publicly lest they upset their political allies who sent the men who planted the explosives. If l die, don’t let any politician address my funeral. They’re not welcome at our home," he said.

Mwangi claimed that his recent sentiments about the newly found love between rapper Juliani and Mutua's ex-wife Lilian Ng'ang'a, did not augur well with the county chief and that he is now baying for his blood.

The Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader has however rubbished the activist's claims and termed his allegations as defamatory. Mutua asked Mwangi to delete the video posts and apologize for shaming him.
