On the year 2015 I single handedly started fight against second generation liquor which was sweeping generation.
After the campaign against the same gained momentum, you joined the fight with full force and declared the tough fight which shakedown the whole country. As a result, the soberness especially in our youth was realized. During the fight of business of death, I was appointed by media colleagues to be chairman of media fight against the menace.
During that period I was joined by my colleges including the current Kiambu women rep Gathoni wa muchomba,who was working at Kameme fm by then,Maina kangethia Kbc editor in chief, Billy Muiruri who is now working in kajiado county government but by was working with Nation newspaper , and many more who worked wholeheartedly to achieve your directives.
Mr President, as a result, I have passed through a lot of pain in courts concerning the fight to achieve directives, and up to now, one case is still proceeding. In the last two elections, I was directly involved in your campaign and in fact am the one who came up with a slogan"Kumira kimira"which initially was directed to mass voter registration and also to urge Kenyans to vote in large numbers as they are mandate constitutionally.
However I was finally subjected to ridicule by one of influential person who maliciously claimed that am writing negative stories towards B.B.I, and a day later I was sacked. My president the claim was false and fabricated and only aimed to destroy my reputation and my career. My dear President was it your directives as that person claimed?
I wish you all the best and pledge my loyalty to you. Moses Kanyira sacked Kameme fm journalist”
