ODM Politicians Rattled by Blogger Scophine Aoko Otieno’s Relentless Attacks
Renowned blogger Scophine Aoko Otieno has been causing a stir among several ODM politicians in recent months following a bitter fallout. However, it seems that Aoko’s criticisms of public figures are far from over.
Those who have encountered Aoko should take heed of the Swahili proverb: “Ukiona Mwenzako Ananyolewa, Na Wewe Tia Maji,” which translates to “If you see your neighbor being shaved, wet your own hair.”
Aoko, known for her boldness on Twitter, has now turned her attention to Kenya Kwanza leaders, starting with Alfred Mutua, the current Cabinet Secretary for Foreign & Diaspora Affairs.
Taking to her Twitter account, Aoko accused Mutua of being responsible for the breakdown of his marriages due to his alleged “bad manners.” She wrote, “No woman walks away from money. I defended you because of politics. You joined Ruto when others were running away from him. Otherwise, ukona Tabia mbaya sana. Nyota ya um*laya has ruined your TWO marriages.”
As a staunch supporter of President William Ruto, Aoko warned Mutua of dire consequences if he dared to undermine the administration of Kenya Kwanza. She stated, “You’ll not fail Ruto. Try it and I’ll splash your nudes.”
These allegations against Mutua come on the heels of the Canadian government calling him out for spreading misinformation about job opportunities for Kenyans in Canada. It was discovered that Mutua’s announcement claiming that Kenyans could now travel to Canada for employment was false.
In an official statement, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) clarified that the programs mentioned by Mutua do not exist and urged Kenyans to seek accurate information on immigration through the country’s official immigration website. The IRCC emphasized, “Disinformation is circulating which suggests that special programs are welcoming Kenyan immigrants. This is false, and the immigration programs referenced do not exist. For accurate information on how to immigrate, visit http://Canada.ca/immigration.”
The IRCC’s response came shortly after Mutua claimed to have had a meeting with Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Sean Fraser, where they allegedly discussed various migration opportunities for Kenyans to work in Canada.
