Kisii Governor James Ongwae is currently under fire for allegedly ordering the arrest of an upcoming rapper who released a hit song criticizing his regime.

Smallz Lethal claims he was arrested by investigation officers and released after interrogation on defamation character touching a public figure.

In his Song titled "AM OFFENDED," he directly mentions Governor James Ongwae claiming he is too corrupt with ghost promises to the electorate.

"I am well fam. Got arrested and released after hours of interrogation on Defamation of Character claims against I don't know who. I was told ‘mkubwa amekasirika’," Lethal said.

Lethal Says the masters want the ‘on fire’ hit rap to be deleted from YouTube for they will reimburse all the expenses used in recording and shooting the song.

"In short, they want the video deleted from YouTube & as they say, they will reimburse the amount used for the project. We will not be intimidated to bring the video down," He said.

On Monday evening, Kisii residents led by Musicians threatened to move to the streets to condemn the indecent arrest. They termed it as unethical and demining the upcoming talents.

South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro who is also a lawyer initiated his release by pinning them down to a no criminal element.

Osoro directly told the Governor to keep off young talents. He had issued an ultimatum for his release but luckily they succumbed to pressure.

"The County Government has been promising artists year in year out. The Governor lies to them I will do this and this for you. Too much PR since 2013. This is wrong and unethical. If this intimidation continues, the demonstration we will do, we will not allow. Let this be the last time you are doing this," Warned Osoro.
