Why Matiangi will never be interviewed on NTV

The CS passed on the message to Larry Madowo

In his weekly newspaper column published by the Nation, Madowo went ham on Matiang’i – attacking the CS’ positive reputation in the public eye.

The outspoken journalist accused the Interior CS of copying Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua in dominating the media with stories of “one achievement after another”.

Madowo further stated that the public’s admiration of Matiang’I had made it impossible to scrutinise his actions, alleging that the CS only accepted interviews with “friendly journalists”.

“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”.

“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.

Apart from the problem of police brutality, Madowo went ahead to accuse Matiang’i of concentrating on visible reforms while ignoring systemic issues.

He further accused Kenyans of praising Matiang’s “minimal efforts” because the country had become accustomed to low standards.
