Here are 6 ‘lucky’ people Mutahi Ngunyi follows on Twitter

Over the years, Mutahi Ngunyi has built a reputation for stoking emotions of hundreds of thousands of Kenyans on Twitter with his provocative opinion.

Unsurprisingly, the highly acclaimed political analyst, controversial writer and consultant doesn’t seem to care much about what the rest of the world thinks about him.

Ngunyi shot to prominence courtesy of his weekly column in the Sunday Nation a few years ago.

He is however best remembered for his infamous ‘Tyranny of Numbers’ theory that predicted victory for President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2013 presidential election.

Ngunyi also made headlines by suggesting on his official Twitter handle that former Interior Minister Joseph Nkaissery was assassinated.

On his official Twitter handle @MutahiNgunyi, Ngunyi boasts an impressive 825,000 followers. In contrast, he only follows six privileged personalities on the same platform.
