Rapper Kennedy Tarriq Ombima alias King Kaka on Tuesday, December 17, shook his followers on social media after he claimed that he had been summoned by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

A position confirmed by activist Boniface Mwangi, who stated on Twitter that King Kaka was expected at the DCI headquarters along Kiambu Road at noon.

Whilst King Kaka did not reveal the reasons for the summons, the development comes under three days after he released the much-acclaimed protest piece Wajinga Nyinyi that reportedly rattled the political class and awoke the public to blatant corruption, poor leadership and a myriad of other issues. 

Hours earlier, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru had issued a demand letter to King Kaka and offered a 48-hour ultimatum over claims he defamed her in the poetic song that has since clocked 1.4 million views.

Through her lawyers; Kiragu Wathuta & Company Advocates, Governor Waiguru in a letter dated December 15 demanded that the rapper must pull-down "Wajinga Nyinyi" and apologise.

“You ought to have known that despite extensive investigations and several prosecutions in relation to the loss of funds at NYS, our client has never been charged in a court of law as an accused person in relation to NYS or any other scandal,” read part of the letter.
