This afternoon, Kenyan activist Boniface Mwangi was caught trying to steal blogger Cyprian Nyakundi’s idea and passing it off as his own.
Through a tweet, Boniface Mwangi suggested that Kenyans on Twitter should use the hashtag #MaliYaWizi to expose corrupt officials whose source of wealth is questionable, something Cyprian Nyakundi already did in June last year through the hashtag #WeKnowYourSalary.
What if Kenyans on Twitter Bureau of Investigators started a hashtag #MaliYaWizi. Mali Ya Wizi would be grabbed public property or anything bought or built by a corrupt official using stolen funds. Tweet and tag @UKenyatta @NPSOfficial_KE @DCI_Kenya @EACCKenya @ODPP_KE

In fact, Cyprian’s campaign was so big that it caught both local and international media’s attention. Ironically, even Boniface Mwangi himself participated in the viral campaign.
So as President @UKenyatta calls for lifestyle, he should lead by example—be ready to be scrutinised. If there is any land in the president’s family that they illegally acquired, the president should be the first to return it. #WeKnowYourSalary pic.twitter.com/14ZunhnpOz

Kenyans on Twitter refused to board Boniface Mwangi’s train and told him off immediately.
You're a thief yourself, trying to replicate Nyakundi's intellectual property and presenting it as your own. Githeri activist, shame! https://t.co/ph7mf1IF6f
