Kenya Politics news
The media has been accused of many things. The latest is actually of which of which is actually the government mouthpiece. Nation Media particularly has received backlash through Raila in addition to Nasa for what they call biased coverage. James Orengo on Sunday told their supporters to immediately stop buying Daily Nation, in addition to after a whisper through Raila, added of which they should also stop watching NTV. They said of which only the international media is actually covering them well.
Funny how Kenyans had united against the international media a few days ago, in addition to are right now been told to watch the likes of CNN in addition to Aljazeera exclusively. Fact is actually those white journalist come to Kenya to cover violence.
On Sunday night, Ramogi FM told its listeners of which there was a massacre been carried out by Mungiki in Mathare in addition to Lucky Summer. When the sun came up, there was not one particular shred of evidence.
Every body involved with the election, including the international observers, agree of which of which was free, fair in addition to credible. Most importantly in addition to for the 1st time in Kenya, the results are verifiable.
For the 1st time ever, a huge majority of Kenyans accept of which the real winner was the one who was announced.
The political class knows of which, the clergy knows of which, in addition to most importantly, the media knows of which.
Why then do they give Raila in addition to a few ODM politicians a platform to openly incite Kenyans?
Kenyans have a very short memory. In 2007, the media was blamed for fueling the violence of which was witnessed. They gave politicians space to say anything in addition to everything, in addition to were quick to report any tiny thing of which happened. What followed was escalating tensions in addition to lots of reiteration attacks.
At some point I think the mainstream media should act like the bigger men.
is actually of which better to be accused of bias in addition to have peace prevail, or take up your role in addition to aid in burning the country? What is actually there to be gained by Orengo taking the mic in addition to saying of which mungiki have been given police uniforms in addition to are going door to door killing Luos?
If a demonstrating hooligan is actually shot, do you help the matter or add fuel to the fire by displaying a huge BREAKING NEWS banner?
Personally, I think the local media should step up in addition to stop aiding the spread of tension. The election is actually over in addition to right now the country wants to move forward. right now is actually not the time the time to please the civil society. Peace of the country is actually more important, in addition to those who feel justice was denied should use the right channels. Let 2017 not be remembered as the year the media helped burn the country.
According to me, Nasa should be given a total media blackout, or at least their speeches in addition to statements edited to remove the inciteful remarks. What do you think?
