Ichung’wah has been at the center of a storm after intruders invaded the Kenyatta family land and looted properties. 

National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichungwa and Citizen TV news anchor Waihiga  Mwaura had a rough time during the Newsnight show on Tuesday. 

The drama started after Mwaura interjected the MP while he was giving his point, something that seemingly irked him. 

Waihiga had asked the MP to provide evidence that former President Uhuru Kenyatta financed the Azimio La Umoja protests. 

However, Ichung’wah told off Mwaura saying if Uhuru had an issue with his remarks he has the right to take him to court. 

He went on to tell Mwaura that he did not tell him that he will be pinning him for evidence on questions he would ask. 

“Has Uhuru Kenyatta told you that he has a problem with me saying he is the financer? Why are you speaking for him? You should have told me that you were coming to interview me on evidence base interrogation,” the MP lamented.

However, Waihiga maintained his ground and asked the MP to provide evidence considering that he was coming to an interview he knew he will be asked about the matter. 

As he tried to dodge the question, Waihiga pinned him to provide evidence. 

“We invited you here. News Night is an accountability show, and you knew you would be asked these things,” Waihiga responded.

This got the MP off and he threatened to walk out of the interview.

“You will allow me to speak or ask me to walk out, Waihiga, because I cannot be saying something, and you interject. Why did you invite me here?” he posed.

The Citizen News Anchor, however, fired back reminding the news anchor that he is the one who requested the interview. 

“It is you who asked to be here,” Wahiga said as Ichung’wah affirmed and asked to be allowed to make his comments. 

“I am a big consumer of this station and that is why I asked to appear on this show.”

“This could be my last show on this TV but for heaven’s sake, I’ll tell you I don’t care. There are things we must do and say for the sake of our country. If even if you the media become part of a script to create anarchy and chaos in this country we are going to lose this country.” 

The MP had requested the interview to shed light on the accusation that he had a hand in the invasion of Former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s family land in Ruiru where properties were destroyed and sheep were stolen.
