The Government has warned that a section of the media, especially at the Coast, are fanning tribal hatred and propping the Pwani si Kenya agenda.
Journalism is noble and has a good reputation. No wonder journalists have often been polled as being among the most trusted people.
Murk and mire
But it appears there is a clique of journalists who are determined to drag the name of this profession through murk and mire. Let them do it if they so wish, but no one should be allowed to incite Kenyans into violence again.
Surprisingly, it is FM stations, this time at the Coast, that are being accused of fanning hatred. No journalists worth their salt – those who know and appreciate their role in society – can (or accept to be used) to incite tribal hatred. Those who do this aren’t professionals, but criminals who should face the law.
Good and bad roads in Kasarani
Like most other people who neighbour the Thika superhighway, long-suffering residents of Kasarani are celebrating the completion of the road.
Unlike before, says Lilo Chiko driving on the road is smooth and enjoyable. But the joy is suddenly cut short once one leaves the superhighway and joins the Kasarani-Mwiki Road.
