After an expose by Citizen TV on guns galore, the Director of Criminal Investigation has once again pounced on the station after rubbishing the claims that weapons were being traded for few thousand Shillings were from the military. This follows an investigation piece that was done by investigative journalist Purity Mwambia.
According to Robert Alai, officers attached to Royal Media Services (RMS) have been withdrawn this morning from their facilities in Kilimani. RMS houses several radios and television stations including Citizen TV.
“Police officers guarding Royal Media facilities in Kilimani withdrawn. This is a wrong move though I think Purity Mwambia did a shallow job and refused to give the police the right-of-reply before airing the shoddy piece. @NPSOfficial_KE,” he tweeted from his account.
The DCI issued a statement yesterday saying everything that was exposed in the video wasn't true and that the said journalist who was in the lead was misusing her media rights. They, therefore, summoned her to their offices to answer the allegations that were brought up.
