Kenya's Watergate is Back, Who Sets Agenda?
In re-awakening the Anglo Leasing scam, the Kenyan media is either simply (and cheaply) measuring to the buzzword of being a watchdog or sinisterly stroking political fires with hidden agenda. So Githongo is back in the headlines this last week without ballot. But who sets our national agenda?
Give it to our media to clothe sectarian interest in nationalistic gab. The Githongo shadow is one ghost you only ignore at this time in our political calender at you peril. And the Government gatekeepers spared no breath to dismiss Kibaki's former and exiled corruption Czar.
Kimunya has now passed the bashing button to Kenya's only existing iron lady. Martha Karua rarely disappoints. She came with the guns blazing, fast, furious and foaming at both ends of her mouth in rubbishing Githongo's latest jibe that painted Kibaki's regime negativbely with poor grades for fighting graft graft.
Swaying public opinion
According Martha Githongo is falsely stealing the limelight and merely profiteering on recycled reports. There is no need to ask whether these reports are true lest you invite unadulterated venom and wrath of the lady from Gichugu.
In all the murk lurks our media's cleverly crafted agenda to sway public opinion as they rake in profit in daily sales thanks to sensation headlines. Well it is only 10 days to the D-day and all the political heat will only leave ashes it its wake with ego both inflated and wounded. Meanwhile kazi indelee.
