REVEALED: Audio Recording of Eric Mutura Abusing a Journalist

By Joe Wakiama

A parliamentary aspirant in Kiambaa Constituency allegedly lost his cool and abused a journalist in all manner of terms.

In an audio recording that has emerged, the voice allegedly of Eric Mutura is heard abusing the unidentified journalist whom they are engaged in a heated exchange.

The voice recording is transcribed word by word below:

“Ndakwira…atiriri ngui ino.

niuraigua we ngui ino wee uria ndirakuira?

…weee, ngui ino tiga kujira uguo we.

Ndutige kunjira uguo…

we tiga kujira uguo nie ndire wa nyukwa we! Niwaigua we?!

…we ngui ino nitukugerana ngero nawe we!

we ningugutumanira OFFICIALLY. We ngui ino tigana nanie we.

………….Thengio, ni thengio andika uria ukwandika. Nkt!

Andika ringi, we, niukumenya ndiri nyukwa nie.

…we utigane nanie we!

 

The aspirant repeats the abuse DOG five times in a conversation of only 35 seconds.

The journalist is heard interjecting every now and then throughout the conversation trying to calm down the aspirant, and urging him to stop abusing him.

At a certain point, the aspirant threatens the journalist “we ngui ino nitukugerana ngero nawe we! we ningugutumanira OFFICIALLY.”

And the journalist replies, “ni sawa. tumana okorwo..tumana..nikii nikiii utidaga ugitishatisha andu uguo. Ureshiria nindiraguitigira? Ndutumane.”

The reply by the journalist reveals that the aspirant allegedly has a tendancy to threaten people.

The aspirant might have been provoked to react in such a way by a question fielded by the journalist.
