Musician Muigai wa Njoroge has been summoned to appear before the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) over the controversial “ino Migunda” song.
In a letter addressed to him indicated the song has lyrics that are ‘threatening and insulting’ and likely to affect the harmonious existence of Kenyan communities.
He has been to appear before the NCIC office in Upper Hill on Friday.
“Take notice that pursuant to section 29 of the NCIC act, summons issued by the commission must be obeyed as if such summons were issued by the High Court,” the letter reads.
The commission further noted that the musician will be cited for contempt of court should he fail to appear on the said date.
In the song, the musician says that Kenyan freedom fighters fought so that Kenyans could have land, but the land has in return been grabbed by a selfish few.
Further, the song tackles the issue of Kenyan political dynasties, noting that the lineage of “oppressors and those who inherit power’ will soon come to an end.
“There will come a time when the common man will not tolerate your oppression anymore,” he sings in part.
At the same time he condemns the recent demolitions in Kariobangi saying they were wrongly executed especially during the pandemic.
