Larry Madowo in Trouble after damning article against Fred Matiang'i
Larry Madowo in Hot Soup!!
This comes after the outspoken journalist accused the Interior CS of copying Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua in dominating the media with stories of “one achievement after another”.
During an Intense Meeting on Wednesday Morning, the Sider Bar Host revealed that, Nation Media Chief Editor Tom Mshindi had informed him that his column in the Daily Nation newspaper would be discontinued after the story portrayed the No-nonsense CS in a bad way.
“What do Fred Matiang’i and Alfred Mutua have in common?” he wrote. “They dominate media coverage and social media feeds with one “achievement” after another as if they work miracles or have superpowers while their colleagues appear like lesser mortals incapable of getting anything right.” Wrote Larry Madowo in his Article published on January 9th.
The article goes on to read, “the godlike status Matiang’i has acquired in Kenya means that there is almost no serious scrutiny of his actions by the masses. This is a man who presided over a brutal crackdown of constitutionally protected rights to protest during last year’s two elections, yet any criticism of that shameful period is dismissed as partisan politics.
In the article, Madowo also stated that Matiang’i had told him in person that he will never be interviewed on NTV.
“Dr Matiang’i has told me in person and at least another of my colleagues that he would never be interviewed by a reporter from NTV because he believes we are biased against him,” the TV anchor-cum-reporter stated.
