- Journalist Linus Kaikai unleashed a tackle that left a Kenyan who had criticised him with an egg on his face
- The Twitter user said Kaikai had not done thorough research on Jimi Wanjigi but Kaikai could not let that slide
- Kaikai sarcastically asked him whether his (the netizen’s) driving skills should be judged by how well his father rides camels
Citizen TV journalist Linus Kaikai has clapped back at a Kenyan who criticised his interview with businessman and presidential hopeful Jimi Wanjigi.
Kaikai interviewed the business mogul on Sunday, August 29, at his home and many had a lot to say about the discussion in which Wanjigi gave reasons on why he wants to run for the presidency.
On Monday, August 30, a Twitter user identified as Ahmed Mohammed called out the Citizen TV scribe for selling the ODM politician as a hustler further stating he did not conduct thorough research on his subject.

“Linus Kaikai didn’t even bother to research that Wanjigi grew up around politics. His father, Maina Wanjigi served as an MP for Kamukunji and Cabinet Minister in Kenya’s first two Cabinets. Selling him as a hustler is a betrayal,” Ahmed said.
However, Kaikai was having none of that; he hilariously and analogically asked Ahmed whether he would feel okay if someone judged his driving skills by how well his father rode a camel.
“Eero Ahmed, how would you feel if your driving skills were judged by how well your father rode camels?” Kaikai posed.
The netizen laughed at Kaikai’s tackle and also told him it was quite unnecessary.
“Abuyay that was an unnecessary tackle. But we continue riding camels,” he said.
At the end of the day, they still made peace as Kaikai replied with a shaking hands emoji.

During the interview, Wanjigi revealed some interesting facts about his life and the controversial Standard Gauge Railway.
Wanjigi said his journey began when he first became a proprietor of a private garbage collection firm that he said paid off in just less than a year into its launch.
He stated that back in the day, he capitalised on his European friends who helped him acquire his first pickup with which he conducted the business.
He also said while he respects his party leader, he was of the opinion that time was ripe for a new fresh crop of politicians to lead the country.
