Popular NTV news anchor Larry Madowo has confessed that former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama normally sends jitters down the spines of Nation Media Group (NMG) employees.

In his weekly column, Mr. Madowo noted that there is always panic in the newsroom whenever the ex-Senator is speaking at an event the station is broadcasting live.

According to Madowo, Muthama’s tendencies of spewing heinous remarks always leaves everyone at the studio between the devil and the deep blue sea.

He divulged that his colleagues are always deliberating on whether they should air Muthama’s remarks or not.

“Whenever former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama gets up to speak at an event we’re covering live, we start to panic a little.

“A split-second decision has to be made whether to air his remarks or cut to break until he is done because we’re never certain that he will keep it decent and dignified,” the news anchor wrote.

Madowo also condemned Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko for seemingly endorsing rape when he publicly declared that he would send men inside Embakasi East MP Babu Owino’s police cell.

“The Nairobi governor’s despicable response to him not only endorsed rape but disrespected everyone who voted him in against their better judgment,” Madowo mentioned.

He did not leave out Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, who has been on record gushing flagrant statements against the National Super Alliance and its leader Raila Odinga.

Madowo noted that the leaders ‘need to wash their mouths’.

He added: "Politicians behaving dishonorably like this are shameful, especially in these deeply divisive times when they should be working harder to reach out to each other across the aisle".

"Regardless of which party you support or who you voted for, you should condemn such dirty language," he said.
