What’s even worse is that Daily Nation ran a cinematic story on Jimmy Wanjigi months back. That one that sounded like a movie script. 2 pages. Now an obituary????. Advertising is running a-mock of that newspaper.— Irvin Jalang'o (@irvinjalango) February 7, 2018
My boss: They have killed Jimmy Wanjigi in the newspapers!

@dailynation Laying the foundation for NIS assassination of Jimmy Wanjigi just like they did to Jacob Juma months before he was brutally killed. pic.twitter.com/ltsrzWzxuc— HK Mwamudz ™ ?????????? (@MwamudzHK) February 7, 2018
I’m waiting to see how much Jimmy Wanjigi will sue the Daily Nation. In other news that paper will sell like Njugu today.— Irvin Jalang'o (@irvinjalango) February 7, 2018
So @dailynation carried a death and funeral announcement of Jimmy Wanjigi while he is still alive. NIS doing ground for assassination @NationMediaGrp #MediaShutDownKE— Rein (@Asamoh_) February 7, 2018
Even the description fits that of Jimmy Wanjigi only the name changed to Wanjagi . Surely does our media editors go through these things before they publish? And whoever paid for it? This is wrong. Very wrong.— Karani Mutonga (@Karanimutonga) February 7, 2018
Jimmy Wanjigi in today's Nation paper Obituaries. Looks like they want to assassinate him and NIS is doing ground testing. Now you see how Kenyan media works with Jubilee and why not to take Githeri media serious pic.twitter.com/4Ay84hj1zX— Cyprian, Is Nyakundi (@C_NyaKundiH) February 7, 2018
