Royal Media Service chairman, Dr. SK Macharia, has allegedly sent an internal memo to all senior managers of his Radio and TV stations asking them not to give opposition leaders a platform to insult President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy
According to sources, Macharia also warned the managers not to allow any opposition leader to talk ill of him or any of his stations whatsoever. He said he want to unite all Kenyans and is not taking sides with the opposition government. He urged his reporters to report news that are of national importance and avoid news that divide Kenyans along tribal lines
Following this directive, Machakos Senator, Johnstone Muthama, was ejected from a live radio interview after he insulted President Uhuru Kenyatta and Machakos Governor, Alfred Mutua
CORD leaders have now threatened to boycott interviews with any of Macharia’s stations following the humiliation Muthama faced.
