KTN TV chief editor Joe Ageyo who is facing serious allegation of negatively influencing the station’s coverage of CORD leader Raila Odinga by the news station has distanced himself from the campaign poster doing rounds on social media.
Ageyo denied allegations he receives handout from Statehouse via spokesman Manoah Esipisu to undermine the opposition leader. He also denied allegation that he will be Jubilee’s parliamentary candidate in Bondo constituency.
The revelations over Ageyo’s alleged links to Statehouse where brought to light by CORD Top Blogger Abdullahi Musa.
Here is Ageyo’s statement
“Over the last 24 hours I have received inquiries from far and wide regarding certain malicious posts on social media about myself. If I didn’t care so much about the millions of Kenyans who have supported my work as a journalist for the last 18 years, I would not have dignified these posts with a response.
But I greatly respect my viewers and would not want to torture them with endless guesswork about my professional standing. To be clear: I do not come from Bondo Constituency. I have the best job in the world that I do not intend to trade for any other.
The only election related plan I have is to ensure that KTN News, the country’s only 24-hour news channel, whose founding editor I am, has the best election coverage in the country, come next year.-Joe Ageyo”
