Top Standard Group Manager resigns as Media shutdown continues

End of an Era!!

In a statement issued by the Board of Directors,  Munywoki’s resignation takes effect  from 1 of February 2018.

“The board of Directors of The Standard Group PLC wishes to notify you of the resignation of Mr. Francis Muli Munywoki, as Executive Director and Managing Director- Print, with effect from 1 February 2018. The board takes this opportunity to thank Mr. Munywoki for his commitment and service spanning a period of six years” reads part of the Notice.

This comes after, Interior and Coordination Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i maintained that all media houses will remain closed until further notice.

"The Government was and is aware of the role of some elements in the media fraternity who participated in furtherance of this illegal act. Their complicity would have led to thousands of deaths of innocent Kenyans due to the buildup of the incitement that was witnessed in early hours of the morning of 30 January 2018,” he said.

On Tuesday, the Government shut down KTN, KTN News, NTV and Citizen TV's on both the free-to-air and paid platforms in a bid to restrict the swearing-in ceremony of Mr Odinga.
