Miguna Miguna: My book is the third most anticipated Kenyan event of 2012

Strange Bedfellas: Controversial US publisher Jerome Corsi and bitter Raila critic Miguna Miguna

By ANTONY KARANJA

Raila Odinga critic Miguna Miguna told a controversial US publisher that the launch of his book was one of the most anticipated events of 2012 by the Kenyan people.

Jerome Corsi, the right wing publisher said on WND.com, that Miguna told him that the hype and suspense about his book would make it a bestseller in Kenya even if a US publishing house publishes the book internationally.

Miguna is said to have claimed that a foreign embassy in Nairobi had conducted a non-scientific survey which put his book as the third most anticipated event of 2012 in Kenya behind the ICC rulings on the Ocampo six and the general elections.

In an email exchange with Mr Corsi, Miguna claimed to be a very popular public figure in Kenya.

“Other than Odinga himself, my name receives the most hits in all Kenyan websites and blogs,” Miguna pointed out. “It does not matter the topic.”

In a separate post, the controversial author claimed that Miguna Miguna has invited him to Kenya for his book launch.

Mr Corsi revealed last week that Miguna had handed to him an 800 page manuscript of his book containing information that would “seriously damage” Prime Minister Odinga’s chances of being elected president.

Corsi states that Miguna invited him for the book launch which is scheduled for 2013 but that he would have to receive an invitation from the government as he does not want to be deported again.

He said Miguna’s book launch was earlier scheduled for this year but has now been moved until after the upcoming elections. He said that the delay appeared to be “government censorship.”

The right wing author also seemed to boast that word of the upcoming book is rocking the country.

He pointed to last week’s article by the Daily Nation which he claimed “berated”him.

In his post, Corsi claimed that the Kenyan media is in the bag for Mr Odinga hence the “name calling.”

“The Kenyan media is as in the bag for Odinga as the mainstream media is in the bag for Obama in the United  States. I’m called a racist and a liar in Kenya, just like Media Matters does here in the USA, for my book ‘The Obama Nation’ – a book that was on the NYT best-seller list for 10 weeks and was #1 for a month in 2008.

Corsi also linked to a forum post on a Kenyan discussion board Jukwa Proboard Forum which was discussing the Daily Nation article and noted that majority of the comments were in support of Mr. Odinga.

He also linked to a post on the popular Kenyan forum Kenyanlist.com containing a story on Raila Odinga who is said to have acquired the services of a USA strategic firm GQR to develop a winning strategy for the 2012 Kenya Elections.

    Yes! Miguna should wait to launch his book after the next presidential election for the following reasons.
    1. Some voters might use the book as a reliable sorce on deciding who to vote for.
    2.Miguna has been hypocrate up untill LAOs fired him and therefore cannot be trusted.
    3.Should this book cost LAO the presidency, Miguna will be stonned to death you know by who.
    4.Our country need peace right know and unless the book unite us,the timing was just dead wrong.

    Miguna has been a beneficiary of the system. If it is true RAO is bad as he claims why did he not just quit instead of waiting to be fired. I am surprised to hear that he is popular!!!!!!!! Where? Did he mean in his own house. By the way who is and where was he before he tricked RAO to hire him.

    Out of curiosity, who is this Miguna Miguna? Where is he from and why was he been KSH 500,000 to advise Raila? Is he a Nigeria, a Luhya or a Luo?

    hahahaha, fellas, this guy is not joking… he is surely going down with Raila and by the way how can you brood a viper in your own yard thinking that it won’t bite you? This is Rao’s undoing, he knew that Miguna was not to be trusted and yet he made him his personal aid eish! what a mistake…my opinion, penye Moshi hapakosi Moto even if its a small fire.
