Controversial city lawyer Donald Kipkorir ignited a fiery debate over Miguna Miguna’s travel dispute with remarks that no village will accept a mad man who everyday abuses their wives, mothers and children, accusing the general of slander.
Those supporting return of the Canadian should tell us: which village will accept a mad man who everyday abuses them & their wives, mothers & children? Freedom of Speech isn’t Freedom of Slander. When the Canadian starts abusing their families, will they still stand by him?

Visibly agitated senator Ledama Olekina called him primitive in response.
“I have never know you to be a sycophant? I was wrong! I thought you are a lawyer, an advocate of the high court? Miguna Miguna is Kenya nothing can ever change that! It is primitive for you to characterize him as a mad man yet he is simply exercising his rights!”, twitted Olekina.
In his defense Kipkorir argued that Miguna is Canadian as he left Canada with a Canadian passport and now wants to be allowed to Kenya without it. “It isn’t how international travels are. Kenya is signatory to Montreal Protocol. Unless you want the law to be broken for one person“, Kipkorir insisted.
Elgeyo marakwet senator Murkomen Kipchumba took the opportunity to allege that Donald was speaking on behalf of Baba and his supporters.

Kipkorir then admitted being an unconditional supporter of opposition leader Raila Odinga but denied being on any retainer from him.
‘My Senator, my beliefs & those of Baba maybe aligned but I’m on no retainer from him … my support for him has always been unconditional …. I want to be counted amongst those who have stood for him at risk of any cost. I will defend his honor & contribution to Kenya”, said Donald.
Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior has since joined the war taking Ledama’s side by saying that he looks more of the lawyer in the exchange.
“The Court of Appeal found that the cancellation of his passport was illegal and ordered it reinstated unconditionally. AG did not appeal .My colleague Ole Kina looks like the lawyer in this exchange . No pun intended”, tweeted Kilonzo Jnr.
