Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen is not a happy man after he was chased by Barongo Senetor Gideon Moi from KTN.Murkomen narrated yesterday how his appearance at KTN was cut short by the former President’s son.
“I am sorry to let you know that my colleague Senator Gideon Moi has cancelled my appearance at KTN #CheckPoint Tonight. I have always supported media freedom in Kenya. Unfortunately the struggle between media ownership and editorial independence is real. I don’t have any ill will against news team. They have to do what they have to do. I wish them well. Good night”,said the Senate Majority Leader
Moi family owns Standard Media Group and since Murkomen was to air his views about the State of Politics in Kenya, there is no way Gideon could have given him airtime.
Gideon is expected to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta and all efforts are made to ensure Ruto is blocked from ascending to power.
