Political Scientist Mutahi Ngunyi has spoken for the first time after his palatial Runda home went up in flames in a midnight inferno.
Mutahi Ngunyi took to Twitter challenging self-appointed hustler nation spokesman Dennis Itumbi to enjoy his misfortunes.
He even provided a better picture for the benefit of Itumbi, noting that the home has been his residence for the last 27 years.
“My FREN @OleItumbi MY house in Runda for 27 years WENT on FIRE at 1.45 am. You TOLD the Hustlers at 2.01 am. About 16 minutes LATER. That is after I talked about KIAMBAA violence of 2008 on 5th Estate. Here is a BETTER picture than the one you POSTED. Enjoy.” Ngunyi wrote.
Itumbi was the first to break the news that Mutahi Ngunyi’s house was on fire, exactly 16 minutes after the fire started according to Ngunyi.
It remains unclear how he learnt of the fire incident within that short time with his post on Twitter reading:
“Dear Fire Brigade, please rush and save @MutahiNgunyi Runda House from FIRE. @NMS_Kenya quick action for a guy who supports you if nothing else. Hope the man is safe and family OK. Other than the tweet, I can only pray that you suffer the LEAST damage and be safe!” Itumbi wrote.
