Anne Kiguta calls out her bosses over failed MP Ndindi Nyoro interview

 

  • Ndindi is a staunch ally of Deputy President William Ruto
  • K24, part of Media Max Ltd., is allied to Ruto’s political nemesis President Uhuru Kenyatta
  • Social media users impressed by Kiguta’s boldness 

 

K24 TV was the centre of debate last night after presenter Anne Kiguta let the cat out of the bag over the real reason controversial MP Ndindi Nyoro failed to appear on her show ‘Punchline’.

In a hard hitting commentary, Kiguta kicked off the 9pm bulletin with an unexpected, no holds barred statement, saying that her bosses had cancelled the interview with the Kiharu MP.

“Tonight, I begin with offering you an apology, we on ‘Punchline’ invited the fiery first time legislator Ndindi Nyoro on the programme”, said Kiguta.  “The Kiharu legislator as you well know, is a strong defender of deputy president William Ruto , who has cast his aspersions on the BBI process. As the host of this programme, I have a responsibility to you the viewer and therefore say that this is not my decision and I respectfully disagree with it.

“We invited Nyoro on this programme and indeed we reach out to all politicians of all persuasions every single week because, we , because I, believe in listening to all sides of the debate. However the management of this station was of a contrary opinion, and had their considered views, concerns by which this programme is bound. I must also say that this is a decision within their rights because as they say in all establishments , management reserves the right of admission. And so, my apologies to the viewers of the programme. However, I am nothing if not a boxer, and at least for tonight there is still some fight left in me and so the show must go on….”

Ndindi is a staunch ally of Deputy President William Ruto, and a key political point man in the vote-rich Mount Kenya region. The region is considered the “political bedroom” of Ruto’s political nemesis President Uhuru Kenyatta who is said to own K24TV.

While President Kenyatta is rooting for constitutional changes envision in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), Ruto is said to oppose it since it curtails his path to 2022 top post.

Kiguta’s bold move came as a surprise to many. “But why invite us in the first place?“ MP Ndindi posed  in a Facebook post. “ They can now have a monologue on dynasties about dynasties and for dynasties on how to create more positions through BBI.”.
