Mother and KTN news anchor Linda Oguttu has blocked controversial lawyer Dr. Miguna Miguna following a recent tweet by the anchor.

Linda Oguttu had previously posted a picture of a kid obviously dirty with the title “Her nanny dressed her up like an Eskimo… They went out to play at 2pm….they have just come back home…. At 6.20… Looking like this.”

Commenting below the picture was Dr. Miguna Miguna terming the word eskimo racist as used by Caucasians to refer to the First Nations People of North America.

In addition to that Dr. Miguna Miguna advised media personalities to be extremely sensitive and avoid the use of toxic words.

“The word “Eskimo” is a racist term Caucasians used to refer to the First Nations People of North America. It is equivalent to “Nigger.” Of all people, media personalities should be extremely sensitive and avoid usage of such toxic words.”

In less than an hour Miguna had been locked by the news anchor as he called her the People’s Con-Man’s worshiper.

“Linda Ogutu blocked me for correcting her racist usage of the word “Eskimo” to describe First Nations people of North America. Kenyan media personalities must stop being mediocre and lazy. She is, after all, the People’s Con-Man’s worshiper”
