MPs to hold protest at Nation Media Group and Royal Media Services Offices

Moses Kuria discloses why MPs will march to Nation Media Group, Royal Media Services

Through his Facebook account, Gatundu South legislator Moses Kuria  disclosed that the peaceful protests will be held on Monday 26 March 2018 and will see the MPs seek audience with the management of the two leading media houses over their reporting on recent events.

The protests come after media outlets linked to the two media giants reported that Murang’a Woman representative Sabina Chege is related to Wazir Benson Chacha who has been conning MPs and Cabinet Secretaries using an MPesa line registered under the name Sabina Wanjiru Chege.

DCI boss Kinoti later clarified that the Muranga County Woman Representative has no special relationship with the fraudster as alleged by a section of the media.

In February 2018, 25 year old Chacha made headlines after he emerged with claims that his 54 year old lover and former Bomet County Woman Representative Dr Cecilia Ng’etich had dumped him.

Media houses have been on the spot over their coverage of news and reporting.

In the run up to the 2017 elections and afterwards, the opposition coalition NASA accused several media houses of favouring their Jubilee party competitors and urged its supporters to boycott the media houses.

On 30 January during Raila Odinga’s ‘swearing in’ leading media houses KTN, NTV, Citizen were swithed off-air after they provided live coverage of the controversial event.
