An online war of words between Nasa activist Miguna Miguna and former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale ended dramatically on Monday with a Twitter block.

This is after Khalwale boasted of having played a hand in Miguna's freedom.

Khalwale had tweeted on how happy he was that Miguna was free at last and condemned the stripping of his Kenyan citizenship.

He also added that he was pleased that his intervention at the embassy of Canada for Miguna's sake was fruitful.

Off course am happy that @MigunaMiguna is free but condemn in the strongest terms possible the illegal & unconstitutional stripping his Kenyan citizenship. If my intervention at the embassy of @Canada was useful then am pleased. https://t.co/g9Ub30ck9D

But the self-declared Nasa Coalition general blasted Khalwale for taking 'undeserved credit'.

Miguna claimed that he had indeed called the Canadian embassy which confirmed that Khalwale never contacted them.

Stop taking undeserved credit. You did absolutely nothing in defense of my rights. The Canadian High Commission in Nairobi has confirmed to me that you did not contact them. A lying physician is a disgrace to human civilization!

Khalwale immediately responded to Miguna's accusation, telling him to stop being so full of himself and that he was not looking for credit but just doing a humanitarian act.

"Our brother, could u please spare us ua delusions of ua own power & importance? Mine wasn't credit seeking but purely a humanitarian act. And that is all," tweeted Khalwale.

This prompted Miguna to block Khalwale but not before accusing him of deceiving Kenyans.

I've blocked you because you add no value to Kenya. You are a CERTIFIED COWARD. It's good that you have exposed yourself. You have deceived Kenyans through churlish theatre and pedestrian pettiness for long. Now, Kenyans know who you are! Goodbye!
