When you get the opportunity to interview a president of a country where thousands are dying of hunger, where a few hundreds just died because of doctors strike, where youth unemployment stands at 67%, Where Citizen have no water, a president who just lied in his SOTN2017 address, the president of a country importing doctors and there are over 4000 unemployed doctors, and that president is seeking another term in office, your journalists instinct should propel you to ask him why he thinks he deserve another term.
When you ask a president of such a country which football team he likes, it’s an indication that as a journalist, you were not adequately prepared for the interview or that interview is just a PR exercise.
Journalist should seek to glean information from lying politicians of their plans to transform the lives of their people.
It is however okay though, to ask a retiring president how they spend their leisure time, because they will have a lot of time in their hand.
I don’t know where to put Uhuru’s interview.
