When you rattle a snake be prepared to be bitten ! (Michuki,2005)…
So, yesterday the government communications regulator The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) suspended the temporary digital broadcast infrastructure licence of Nation Media Group, Standard Group and Royal Media Services effectively stepping on the toes of the three leading TV stations, oh yes, the president of the editors guild one Macharia Gaithoi was breathing fire, he spared non, hitting Uhuru regime on the head. Here is what Macharia Gaitho said>>
“Jubilee has land-grabbing imprinted in its DNA and genetic code….It is busy crafting repressive new laws and reviving statutes from the colonial occupation to gag the independent media, limit freedom of expression, silence dissenting voices, curtail freedom of assembly, reintroduce detention without trial, and throw pesky bloggers and social media commentators into jail. That is what dictatorships do to shroud their excesses in secrecy and give themselves freedom to rob, loot, rape, and plunder without being questioned.”
Well, Macharia may have forgotten the famous breakfast feasting in statehouse two years ago after the country’s mainstream media reporters and editor turned themselves to Jubilee’s electoral agents and led the TNA call to Kenyans to ”accept and move on- dont question if Jubilee Rigged themselves to power”….
Talk of chicken coming home to roost!
