Miguna takes jibe on learned friend Orengo for ‘poor’ English

Controversial lawyer and author, Miguna Miguna, has taken a swipe at Siaya Senator, James Orengo for his ‘poor’ English.

One given to expressing his views regardless of whom they might offend, Mr Miguna, in tweet on Friday corrected the senator’s English and advised him to spend time reading.

The senator, who like Miguna, is a reputed lawyer had tweeted to inform his followers that he was among people nominated by Cord to a Joint Select Committee that will deliberate on the current standoff between the opposition on one side and the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on the other side.

“Cord has nominated myself and Hon. Eseli Simiyu to lead a committee to chart the way forward on IEEBC in 24 hours.”

To which Miguna responded with a quick 101 ‘correct English’ lesson with some advice to boot.

Miguna, a one-time advisor of Cord leader Raila Odinga, is best known for authoring Peeling Back the Mask: A Quest for Justice in Kenya, a highly critical book on the former Prime Minister.
