Thursday May 14, 2020 – Self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement (NRM) general, Miguna Miguna, is perhaps one of the most abrasive politicians, who has featured in Kenya’s politics since independence.
Miguna, who is an Osgoode trained lawyer, has in the last one year been the number one critic of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration and even using unprintable words to abuse the Head of State.
Interestingly, Miguna and President Uhuru Kenyatta share a close connection in the name of Denvon Nesbith – a Canada based ICT expert.
Nesbith is one of Miguna’s closest friends but also happens to be married to Uhuru’s first cousin, former Kiambu Woman Rep, Anna Nyokabi Gatheca.
Nesbith, who is of Jamaican descent, met Miguna at York University where they co-founded the Pan-African Law Society which sought to fight racism in the university and around Toronto.
Another student at York University at the time was Nyokabi, who would later become Nesbith’s husband.
In his book, Miguna describes his Jamaican comrade in glowing regard, and one of the people who helped him start his political career in Kenya.
