There is a joker and his wife who are spreading lies about Kumekucha on the web.
They claim (the Kenyan man and woman are running a book publishing company and are based in the US) that we are serializing plagiarized material in the form of an original work titled Kenya Betrayed which has never been published before. An earlier version of the same story published as The Shining Star and done by the man in question (Sam Okello) used original material from Marianne Briner but left out the real names of the persons in the story.
Let us leave aside the issue that the same writer has to date sold many books but never remitted a cent to the originator despite many false promises. The issue here is that no matter what angle you look at this thing from it seems that their view of the word plagiarized contradicts the definition of the word in all known English dictionaries.
I have decided to ignore these wild allegations but just wanted to inform our readers about it in case they come across it through search engines or elsewhere they will at least know what is going on.
I suspect that the trick being played here is to provoke me to link to the site where the story is carried for traffic reasons. I will not do that.
But what is even more distressing is a claim by the man’s wife that the originator of Kenya Betrayed killed Dr Ouko. Apart from such remarks being very distressing to the person being accused of this very grave matter that is not something to joke about (can you imagine what Mrs Ouko would feel reading the remarks?) it clearly shows that they have an ulterior deep hidden motive in this affair.
