Civil rights activist Boniface Mwangi has said he will not run away from Kenya to seek asylum elsewhere, the threats and intimidation from certain individuals notwithstanding.

During a live interview on NTV’s The Trend on Friday night, the fiery activist decried rampant corruption and poor governance that Kenya has been subjected to.

An one point during the interview, an emotional Mwangi almost broke down as he passionately spoke about his struggles to see a better Kenya.

“I’m going to continue this fight, through all the threats, intimidation, death… whatever it is. They can threaten me all they want, but I’m not leaving this country, I’m not running away,” Mwangi said.

“Boniface Mwangi is not leaving Kenya. If you kill me you gonna bury me here… I’m gonna fight for this country, and let death come, if it comes… I’m not afraid and I’m never selling my voice and I will never sell out. Kenya belongs to all of us and I love my country. That will never change, no matter what,” a teary Mwangi said.

During the same interview, he also discussed his newly launched book Unbounded and his activism.

Boniface Mwangi is presently facing defamatory charges in court filed by Deputy President William Ruto.

The DP has sued the activist for linking him to the murder of city businessman Jacob Juma through a series of tweet that he (Mwangi) posted on September 28.
