Lawyer Miguna Miguna has threatened to sue US-based Kenyan scholar Prof. Makau Mutua over sexual assault allegations.
This comes after the two were embroiled in a heated spat on Twitter over the weekend, with Mutua claiming that Miguna was facing rape and sexual coercion charges in Toronto courts.
Mutua, a law professor at the SUNY Buffalo School of Law in New York, alleged that Miguna took advantage of vulnerable refugees and immigrant women—some from Kenya—who sought his legal help to gain residency and asylum in Canada. The multiple rape cases against Miguna, Mutua said, were being revived.
Miguna wants Prof. Mutua to retract his statement, delete the tweets, and issue an apology failure to which he will face legal action for libel.
“Take Notice that legal action shall be commenced against you if you do not forthwith publish a retraction and apology regarding the false allegations you made on Twitter on November 14th, 2021 at about 1.16 pm about me.”
“You are also required to forthwith delete, remove and purge all the tweets you published concerning the aforesaid offending publications about me…” Miguna said through Twitter.
