Donald Kipkorir fires back over blistering blog
Flamboyant Nairobi lawyer Donald B. Kipkorir has fired back at a blog that had rebuked his persistent display of wealth on social media platforms.
This was in an apparent response to Njoki Chege’s blistering blog, first published on Nairobi News, that had taken a dig at an unnamed city lawyer with high political connections.
In the blog, Ms Chege told off the lawyer for posting his every achievement on social media, in contrast to his wealthier peers who do not flaunt their possessions in public.
She wrote, “I understand that you are “new money” and a classic case of rags to riches. Congratulations. A little excitement is allowed but you need to get over yourself and understand that there are people in this country who’d buy you three more Ranger Rovers and not feel the pinch.”
In his rejoinder, lawyer Kipkorir accused unnamed bloggers of hating other people’s successes.
Those, whose stock-in-trade is malevolent & spiteful hatred of success is reason they are & bloggers living in cheap apartments on Thika Rd!
